Use of 105mm turrets for M4A3E4 or M4A1E6 conversions?
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: Use of 105mm turrets for M4A3E4 or M4A1E6 conversions?

Hello,

could someone help to find photos or information about the potential use of 105mm turrets for M4A3E4 or M4A1E6 conversions? (the M4A1E6 is just like the M4A3E4, but with a small hatch M4A1 hull). All the survivors have been seen with regular 75mm D50878 (low bustle) or D78461 (high bustle) turrets.

The%20105mm%20turret%20has%20an%20extra%20vent%20at%20the%20rear%20:

thanks

P-O

One theory is that the 105mm hulls used came from the early 105mm Shermans without powered turret traverse. Rebuilding the turrets with powered traverse would've been more elaborate than simply using already available 75mm turrets, so the turrets were replaced.

But it would be interesting to see if any 105mm turrets were actually used.
