Hello,

I remember having seen a photo of an M4A3 75mm wet with HVSS. It was a tank from the Netherlands that was sold to the USA. Which one was it?

Its current location should be at the American air power museum in Farmingdale NY.

I'm preparing a page describing the M4A3(75)W for "Sherman minutia", but the photo of that Sherman tank doesn't really fit with what I need... in my memory it was a bit different that what we can see on the photo.

What are you looking for P-O ?

It's my photo and I have some more of this Sherman.

And it is the only M4A3E8 with a 75mm that I know, all others are 105mm

There is also a picture of a bunch of them sitting in a tank park in the Philippines during the war, for the planned invasion of Japan. I believe I first saw it in a Hunnicutt book.

I've done some researches on Internet and was not able to find any photo of an M4A3 75mm wet HVSS on the internet, except these two :

I forgot to mention

There has been some discussion about this Sherman



Most likely it was a converted M74, so not original M4A3 75mm wet HVSS

Hello,

Gary Binder kindly sent me a photo of an M4A3(75)W with HVSS being tested at APG :


Michel, I thought that it would be nice to use your pictures to illustrate that particular variant of the Sherman, but it is a former M74 retriever, and some M74 modifications can still be seen on the hull. The front lifting rings are in a lower position than when it left the factory (a modification required for the M74 conversion) and there are still the fittings for the blade on the differential housing. That's why I think it was not suitable to properly illustrate that variant. The black and white photo shows the original tank, at last.
