M4A3E8, US Medium Tank - Early, 1/16 Plastic Kit.
The Sherman M4A3E8 HVSS early middle tank is the first to come from I Love Kit in 1/16 scale.
This tank was the "work horse" of the US Army in WWII and was built in various versions. It was continously redesigned and improved.
The M4 equalized its flaws by numbers of productions. A Tiger or Panther tank simply killed them with one shot, so it simply was produced in such numbers the Germans couldn't shoot them all. Also it tended to catch fire instandly, what led to the nickname "Zippo".
By release of the E8 version the heaviest gun was installed, the 76mm canon and also the better HVSS suspention. The E8 was the end of the M4 evolution, but was still in use during then 1960's in Israel.
