M4A1E9 restored back to M4A1 at Overloon
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: M4A1E9 restored back to M4A1 at Overloon

Hello,

this was already discussed before. A Sherman M4A1E9 was recovered from a fire range and is being restored, in order to become a monument at Overloon.

However,%20following%20the%20restoration%20on%20this%20website%20: http://www.shermantankoverloon.nl/ I've%20seen%20that%20the%20restoration%20team%20wants%20to%20restore%20the%20tank%20back%20to%20the%20normal%20configuration%20(without%20the%20E9%20fittings).%20 As%20the%20webaster%20says%20: \"The%20tank%20is%20a%20Sherman%20type%20M4A1-E9.%20However,%20this%20configuration/version%20never%20appeared%20in%20Overloon%20in%201944.%20After%20much%20debating%20and%20reflecting%20we%20decided%20to%20eliminate%20these%20expansions/wideners%20to%20obtain%20the%20right%20configuration%20as%20used%20in%20Overloon%20in%20Autumn%201944.\"

I think that it is unbelievable today to see what is being done in order to have the correct model of tank being displayed at the right place. This would not have happened few years ago...

Makes you wonder why make all that effort to make it appear as a Sherman that fought at Overloon when a Sherman that really did fight at Overloon was given/sold/traded to Italy as a war memorial a year or so ago when they could have sent this one!

Tim,

Don't get me started! The group currently restoring the M4A1E9 were "not amused" either when Cookie went abroad. That is why they are working so hard to commemorate the role of the US 7th Armoured Division.
