How could the M4 Sherman be worse than the Tiger, Panther, and T-34? The Tiger and Panther had horrible reliability and were incredibly uncomfortable to their crews. Their build quality made them way worse than the Sherman. The T-34 was made even worse. It had non-existent reliability, the armour was way too brittle, causing it to break and crack even by a shell that shouldn't've penetrated it. Its optics were almost always made out of polished steel, meaning the crew couldn't look out of it. The suspension and cost cutting measures meant the crew had zero space inside the tank. The transmission was so unreliable and poorly mounted that it was almost impossible to shift higher the 2nd gear (19kph) or into reverse. The Sherman on the other hand, had high reliability, could easily be repaired due to the large amount of easily replaceable parts, and the crew could see out of the tank, were miles more comfortable, and could escape easily if the tank was hit due to the spring loaded hatches

Peterpancake, you know nothing about tanks if you think the americans didnt know anything about tanks and thinking the m4 is the worst is proof.

The m4 was the second most produced tank of the war and served in over a dozen different countries armed forces. It along side the m3 was the only tank to serve on every front of the war. It was so good that even the russians liked it.

Whilst the m4a1 did have some teething issues, particularly the lack of wet storage for ammuntion and the gasoline engine and the short 75mm. But these were fixed with the m4a2. It was fast, reliable and both easy to produce and to maintain. It was also very easy to modify which both the americans and the british did multiple times. It was mechanicly sound and did not face the constant breakdowns like ther german tiger and panther.

It was so good that it still saw use and success in the korean war.
