M4A3 75mm wet with HVSS
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.

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.
