The M4 Sherman was the result of a new design for an American medium tank based on the M2/M3 but mounting a 75mm gun in its turret. It was standardised in October 1941 and, with successive improvements, remained the standard US medium tank until the end of the war. It became the most widely produced, used and important of all tanks in service with the Allied forces during the war. A number of models were built in addition to the M4 with its Continental petrol engine, welded hull and vertical volute spring suspension (VVSS). The M4A1 had a cast hull, the M4A2 had twin General Motors diesel engines and the M4A3 had a Ford petrol engine. The M4A4 had a Chrysler tank engine consisting of five car engines linked together, and which necessitated an extended hull.
