The M4 Sherman, formally Medium Tank, M4, was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II
About this creation
The Sherman evolved from the Grant and Lee medium tanks, which had an unusual side-sponson mounted 75 mm gun. It retained much of the previous mechanical design, but added the first American main 75 mm gun mounted on a fully traversing turret, with a gyrostabilizer enabling the crew to fire with reasonable accuracy while the tank was on the move. The designers stressed mechanical reliability, ease of production and maintenance, durability, standardization of parts and ammunition in a limited number of variants, and moderate size and weight. These factors made the Sherman superior in some regards to the earlier German light and medium tanks of 1939-41, which the German Army still used through the later stages of the war (albeit in up-gunned and up-armored variants). The Sherman ended up being produced in large numbers and formed the backbone of most Allied offensives, starting in late 1942.

Below is one of the many Sherman tanks at the museum where I work.
A German tank ace once said that while a Tiger tank could take out 12 Sherman tanks, there was always a 13th.
Early Sherman models were prone to burning when struck by high-velocity rounds. The Sherman gained grim nicknames like "Tommy-cooker" (by the Germans, who referred to British soldiers as "Tommies") With gallows humor, the British called it the "Ronson," after the cigarette lighter with the slogan "Lights up the first time, every time!" Polish tankers referred to it as "The Burning Grave." This vulnerability increased crew casualties and meant that damaged vehicles were less likely to be repairable.
What the Sherman lacked in strength and power it made up in sheer numbers. Over 50,000 were produced during WWII.
During WWII, the recovery depot made an observation that many of the knocked out tanks had a hole at the front, in the same place...yep, right through that white star. I guess a bulls-eye was to difficult to paint.
For example: Er.....I raise the height of the car using bricks then i put tracks under the wheels. Next, you can use the tool (er.....I forgot its name) to bend tracks. That's all i can tell ya. I hope it's useful. ^^
I also suggest using extended mode or universe mode so you can find the bricks and change the colours of them, These mode are awesome.
