Sherman II Diecast Model
New Zealand Military 4th Armored Bgd, Italy, 1944

1:76 Scale   Length   Width
Sherman II   3"   1.5"

The US Sherman tank is as deployed by the 4th New Zealand Armoured Brigade in the Italian Campaign in 1944. The Brigade was formed in October 1942 and before moving up to Italy, had seen action in Greece, Crete and in North Africa. Arriving in Italy in October 1943, the Brigade now included the 18th Armoured Regiment as well. The regiment had over 50 Sherman tanks in both turret and unturreted configurations. Note that this model has the addition of a rear turret box for this release. The New Zealand brigade was engaged in both central Italy and the Adriatic coast, including the Battle of Monte Cassino. Decorated in the dark brown and olive green camouflage scheme, with red and white military graphics and black caterpillar tracks, a tiny detail sees the New Zealand fern in black and white on both the front and rear lower body.

Sherman II

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.
