British Army 10th Armored Div, 1942

Sherman III   3"   1.5"

The Sherman, deployed by the 10th Armoured Division (UK) which was an amalgamation of the 1st Cavalry Regiment, a 1st Line Yeomanry unit of the TA, which had previously served in Palestine. The division diverted to armour in 1941 and had a force of between 13,000 and 14,000 men and 186 tanks, which saw action in the Middle East and in the battles of North Africa. This 1:76 replica of one of the Division's Sherman Mk III tanks is decorated in a beige and dark green camouflage scheme with black tracks. The model features a rear turret box. The underside of the gun barrel and body is painted white and the RAF roundel is positioned on the upper side of the tank, which carries the military number T743480. An additional feature comprises the formation sign of the 10th Armoured Division - a fox's mask, representing the hunting tradition of the formation's cavalry and Yeomanry units, which appears on the front and back of the tank.

Sherman III

The pilot model of the M4 was completed in September 1941, and the Sherman became the most widely produced tank of the war. The M4 Sherman defeated heavier tanks with superior numbers, and by using outflanking tactics to strike thinner enemy flank armor. Shermans also achieved success with progressively upgunned models and by working with tank destroyers. The Sherman tank--named by the British--was fast, maneuverable, mechanically reliable, easy to manufacture, and effective in its infantry support role. It served with the US Army and Marines during World War II, and the US transferred large numbers to the United Kingdom and allied forces of many countries.
