Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

The Soviet Army received 2,007 examples of the 75mm M4A2 from America during the war and they saw extensive use. They were well liked by their crews and at least one of the coveted ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ decorations was won by an M4A2 commander. This one is in a poor condition with damaged suspension, left-hand track and gun barrel, and has had its engine compartment plated over. According to a report this Sherman has been recently removed; its current whereabouts are unknown.
It is fitted with steel cleat track.

Text in Preserved Tanks In Russia Update:

In the mid 1990s this Sherman was moved from the Snegiri Museum to Poklonnaya.
