Wot m4a3e2


AMX M4 mle Aim at the sides of back of enemy vehicle, if that is not possible, aim at weakspots at front armor. Since your cannon has low penetration you are forced to search for less armored parts of enemy vehicle. i really disliked the E2. sluggish af. cant recommend it at all. E8 is at least some sort of fast (eventhough it shares the same crappy gun) Personally I prefer the E8, a mobile tank is still mobile whether it's top tier or bottom tier. An armoured tank is not so armoured if you're taking shots from tier 8 tanks. I did a lot better in the E8 than I did in the Jumbo, although that might be down to me learning more between playing the two tanks.

However, taking the high ground allows the E2 to fire on the angled upper glacis of opponents at a flatter angle, which is crucial given the low penetration of the 76mm cannon. When cresting a hill, remember not to expose your lower glacis plate, though finding a spot where you can fire upon the enemy without exposing the plate is troublesome. As long as you have a decent depression to occupy, and don’t have to move, you might do well. However, situations like this without the risk of flanking or bombardment are painfully rare. Unless you can locate the perfect spot on the perfect hill to deploy to every time, you won’t be at any real advantage.

The vehicle featured additional 38-mm armor plates, enhanced transmission compartment hatch, and a new turret with enhanced armor that was developed on the basis of the T23 turret The overall effect of the E2 program was positive. It addressed the very real concerns of the crews that the M4 lacked the armor protection that enemy tanks had. It produced a tank that the Germans had a much harder time dealing with than they were used to. One thing unknown is the moral effect (if any) this had on German crews, as at normal combat ranges the Jumbos would have been difficult to distinguish from standard M4s and the effect of seeing your shots, that would normally disable or knock out a tank, having no effect cannot be a comforting sight! An article by Adam PawleyYou people must just gloss right over and conveniently ignore the part where it says how “we tested it and the M4 Medium chassis CAN carry 80,000lbs, but not for normal service”. They slapped twice as much armor on a chassis than it was designed for. It was able to carry it around, but it would have made for a tank that broke down even more than Tigers. The biggest reason Germany managed to use Tigers to such good effect is that they were fighting on the defensive the majority of the time, and didn’t need to drive long distances (when they did they invariably left large numbers of destroyed Tigers behind when they broke down). Trying to drive across Europe with a bunch of M4s carrying twice the weight of armor they were designed for, AND a gun twice as heavy as intended (mostly in the nose) is a recipe for trouble. They didn’t do it because it was a bad idea, as bad as the Tiger II was. Why do you think they only built 250 of them? They were useful for a few very limited purposes, but that’s about it. And they needed constant repair to keep on the roads; the Allies were driving long distances at high speed, trying to maintain momentum. They didn’t need to be lugging a bunch of mechanical nightmares along with them.

However, this was never to be fulfilled as Japan then surrendered to the United States in September 1945. The M4A3E2 Shermans proved to be a very effective stop-gap solution until heavier armoured tanks such as the Pershing could come into play. In 1948, about 96 Sherman Jumbos still remained in US inventory.

Ideas worth passing on : [WOT] M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo

Survivability and armour

Normally, I include two replays showing the tank performing well. I don’t have a second good match to show, since I started playing the E2. I don’t see a point in including a replay wherein I get blown to hell in exchange for nothing appreciable. Everyone already knows how to fail, that doesn’t take study. All I can recommend is ensuring that you have other tanks to cleanse your frustration between matches, and give yourself a break in grinding. Most other tanks are, fortunately, not this bad. Tank: M4A2E4 Sherman In March of 1944, the US Army ordered for 254 of these vehicles to be delivered for use for European Operations. Intended for the assault on the Normandy Beachhead, it was deployed in Normandy after D-Day to assist the infantry push through German defences. The M4A3E2 originally came with the 75 mm guns to support infantry with its better HE shells compared to the planned 76 mm instalment, but the 76 mm was installed later in the campaign and called the M4A3E2 (76) W Jumbo. When compared to the M4A3E8 “Easy Eight”, the other Tier 6 Sherman variant, the E2’s frontal armor is considerably thicker than the E8’s, and its upper glacis plate has only one hole drilled in it creating a single, difficult-to-hit weak spot. This sounds like a significant advantage, but the forums easily agree that the Easy Eight is the better choice. All the E2’s extra armor on the M4 chassis costs far too much in terms of agility, and is still insufficient to the full spectrum of threats it faces. The E8 can carousel around opponents, while the E2 struggles to dodge even distant artillery fire. On that note, artillery will straight up murder an E2 from any angle, increased frontal armor or no.

M4A3E2 - War Thunder Wik

If a frontal engagement is unavoidable and is unfortunately armed with guns unable to penetrate through the front glacis, there are only two areas that are viable. First is the machine gun port, which is one of the areas that is not layered with the extra 38.1 mm added on top of the base armour. Guns like the Panzer IV 75 mm KwK 40 guns that are unable to cleave through the front glacis can push their luck in this area, with small "sweet spots" that the round can pass through. Another way to attack the M4A3E2 in this scenario is exploiting a shot-trap in the gun mantlet. The small corner flaps on the bottom corners of the gun mantlet have a tendency to deflect rounds downwards onto the 19.5 mm hull roof armour. While this will be left to the ricochet chances, it is still possible and can be used if no other scenarios are favourable. In early 1944, the United States Army decided that they needed an up-armored version of a medium tank for an assault role for the upcoming operations in the European Theatre of Operations (ETO). However, they had rejected previous plans for such a vehicle, and time was short. As the new T26E1 would not be ready in time and previous designs had been totally unsuitable for the task, the decision was made to modify the standard US Army medium tank of the time, the M4A3 Sherman. The vehicle became the M4A3E2 Assault tank or Sherman Jumbo. With only 254 built, it represented less than 1% of the total build numbers for the M4. However, it’s iconic profile left a lasting image that is probably one the most easily recognized M4 variants. It should be noted at this point that the name ‘Jumbo’ doesn’t appear in any wartime documentation and is almost certainly a post-war nickname, quite possibly created by a model company.

In battle, your turret will be hit often, and you will appreciate the thicker armor of the M4A2E2T110 turret. It’s not impervious by any means, but it is small and can bounce a good amount of fire. Set up hull-down wherever possible, and start slinging shells. You will take criticals to your optics, turret traverse, and gun, but few shots will hit and penetrate to deal actual HP damage. With such lackluster penetration for the main cannon, I would favor an HE option. Unfortunately, the E2 has no howitzer.So it’s like a up armored Sherman, with more armor than a Tiger. But the Tiger’s gun could still pen it from a distance right? Also, was it a common thing to put extra spaced armor on Sherman’s? Even with this having 177mm of armor sloped? I understand for a normal Sherman, but why the E2?

The main gun in the first M4A1s built was the 75mm M2, which was shorter than the M3 and needed double counterweights on the end of the barrel to be compatible with the tank's gyrostabilizer If you're not able to penetrate Jumbo armor, retreat behind stronger tanks. Sherman Jumbo is vulnerable to attacks from both sides.

The hull of Sherman Jumbo is well armored, mostly thanks to the great angle at which the main plate is placed. Avoid shooting at front armor, especially at the lower plate that is virtually impenetrable. Visible weakspot that is the machine gun socket in fact isn't a weakspot. It has the same thickness as rest of the armor. The M4A3E2 Sherman assault tank, nicknamed the Jumbo, came out of the U.S. Army's need for a heavily armored gun to aid infantry in the invasion of In March 1944 authorization was given to modify 254 M4A3 Shermans with additional armor. An overlay of 1 1/2 inches of rolled steel plate was welded.. In this replay, the Cromwell traded frontal shots with me and suffered terribly for it. I took massive damage and crits from later fire even at an angle, but, in all fairness, that was from a Tier 8 heavy. When low tier, you should probably play more conservatively than I did here. You can still contribute damage with precision aiming and cagey driving, but I attribute a lot in this match to luck. Xmas special 2019 David B.

M4A3E2 vs M4A3E8? - Newcomers' Forum - World of Tanks official

  1. no, but it WOULD probably make for a makeshift infantry tank, in a way… The only 105mm armed Shermans were the M4(105) and M4A3(105) Shemans. One thing gets me though: How sucessful would it be IF a 76mm Sherman turret/T23E3 turret were to be mated with a 17-pdr? Clearly there’s gonna be some modifying to the turret, but it seems reasonable that it would be mated somehow?
  3. Overall I enjoy the E8 more, the mobility in the current MM makes it a bit more flexible, but with 128 base pen at tier 6 you need to be quite liberal with premium ammo usage vs higher tiers. The E2 is a beast vs lower and same tiers, but all of it's strengths are removed as soon as your not top tier, sure you can still bounce shoots but that more comes down to RNG than anything else and the HE derp ain't as reliable, the tank still works quite well, better than many other tier 6 MT's in the same situation. In the end though I'd rather be in the E8 than the E2 when I'm not top tier and when I am it don't really matter since both do their job just fine.
  4. The Assault Tank M4A3E2 Jumbo is a rank III American heavy tank with a battle rating of 5.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was one of the first American tanks to be released with the American ground tree in Update 1.45 "Steel Generals". It is built off a standard M4A3 chassis, with a T23 turret with a 75 mm gun, and up-armoured on nearly all sides. This gives the M4A3E2 boasts nearly 100 mm of frontal armour sloped at 47°, giving it a massive armour upgrade from the regular M4 Shermans. As a side note, the nickname "Jumbo" was likely never used during WWII, as there is no record of it. However, its use both on the Wiki and In-Game is still prevalent.

It takes on the general look of an M4A2 but is much more armoured (and also uses a Ford gasoline engine). The M4A3E2 features the double layered front armour giving the vehicle its distinctive 101.6 mm total front armour, giving its boast of being better armoured than the Tiger I. The transmission housing is also considerably beefier too from the addition of armour at the area as well. The front of the T23-style turret is also distinctive with the very blocky gun mantlet and circular barrel shroud around the rather underwhelming 75 mm gun barrel. Main reason to play the Jumbo is to fit the stock turret and the 105 derp, 152mm of all round armour is great but its a fun tank rather than a serious one.Hello Curt, Send us a message at tanks.encyclopedia@gmail.com. Or contact us on Facebook if that is easier for you.Without doubt the most famous of all the Jumbos was named ‘Cobra King’, the first tank into Bastogne in Belgium, the vital crossroads town at the centre of the fighting during the Battle of the Bulge. Cobra King was issued to 37th Tank Battalion of the 4th Armoured Division on the 24th or 25th of October 1944 and was assigned as the company commander’s vehicle of Company C. Much detail of Cobra Kings war service is difficult to confirm with absolute certainty but some of it is as follows. From the time of its issue to its loss near the end of the war, Company C had five commanding officers who were all therefore Cobra King’s commanders. July 1944 – 23rd November 1944, Richard Lamison 23rd November – 23rd December, Charles Trover (Trover was killed in action 23/12/44) 23rd December – 12 Januar 1945, Charles P. Boggess 12th January – (?), George Tiegs (?) – 28th March 1945, William Nutto Before the Battle of the Bulge details, of Cobra King’s actions are difficult to confirm. A well known one is on the 7th November outside Fontany, France when during an attack Cobra King took a hit to the final drive assembly that disabled the tank and left it with a permanent battle scar. The splash damage left from the penetration of the final drive assembly – Picture: Don Moriarty During the German winter offensive, the Battle of the Bulge, the important crossroads town of Bastogne, Belgium had been cut off and surrounded by German forces. Patton’s Third Army was tasked with trying to break through the German lines in the south with the 4th Armored Division as the main spearhead of this counterattack. On December 26, 1944, Lt. Boggess, commander of Cobra King, was fighting his way on the road from Assenois, Belgium to Bastogne. The following passage is from an article written by Charles Lemons, former curator of the Patton Museum. Cobra King was way ahead of the rest of the column and had just destroyed a German bunker along the road when Boggess spotted several uniformed figures in the woods near the bunker. They wore the uniforms of U.S. soldiers, but knowing how Germans were disguising themselves as Americans, he maintained a wary eye. He shouted to the figures. After no response, he called out again and one man approached the tank. “I’m Lieutenant Webster of the 326th Engineers, 101st Airborne Division. Glad to see you.” With that meeting at 4:50 p.m. on December 26, 1944, Patton’s Third Army had broken through the German lines surrounding Bastogne Cobra King While records of the rest of the crew are not so complete the crew during the Battle of the Bulge is known. Gunner, Milton B. Dickerman Loader, James G. Murphy Driver, Hubert J.J. Smith Co-Driver, Harald D. Hafner Cobra King was one of the Jumbos to receive a 76 mm gun upgrade and it’s coaxial machine-gun was also upgraded to a .50 cal (12.7 mm) in early 1945. The next part of Cobra Kings known service followed in March. More from Charles Lemons article. After doing more research and discovering a post-war photo of an M4A3E2 Jumbo at a repair depot in Lager Hammelburg that had matching characteristics of Cobra King, the theory was presented that this was Cobra King and that it had participated in “Operation Hammelburg” the controversial mission which was personally ordered by Third Army commander General George S. Patton. The operation took place on March 26-28, 1945 with the official purpose of liberating a prisoner of war camp, OFLAG XIII-B, near Hammelburg, Germany. But unofficially, it’s purpose was to free Patton’s son-in-law, Lieutenant Colonel John Waters, who was taken prisoner at Kasserine Pass, Tunisia, in 1943. A small task force comprised of men and vehicles from the 37th Tank Battalion and 10th Armored Infantry Battalion commanded by Captain Abraham J. Baum, was formed. Task Force Baum consisted of M4A3 Shermans, M5A1 Stuarts, M4/105 Shermans, Jeeps and halftracks. The total strength was 314 men and 57 vehicles. The task force fought through German lines with serious losses and reached Hammelburg and liberated the camp, but Patton’s son-in-law was wounded and had to be left behind. Ultimately, the entire operation turned into a total failure when German forces in the area eventually overwhelmed the small task force, destroying or capturing all vehicles and capturing Baum and almost all of his men and the liberated POWs. Since Company C of the 37th Tank Battalion was in this raid, it leads to the question – did Cobra King participate in the ill-fated Hammelburg mission? In the book RAID!: The Untold Story of Patton’s Secret Mission by Richard Baron, Major Abe Baum and Richard Goldhurst, Baum stated that a tank named “Cobra King” commanded by Lt. Nutto was knocked out and abandoned on March 27, 1944 as it approached Hammelburg. But some historians have discounted this entry citing that the need for speed was essential on this mission and that a heavy, slow-moving Jumbo would be a hindrance. Through these observations of Cobra King and research, then Patton Museum curator Charles Lemons proposed at the time the following: “Cobra King is slowly revealing its secrets. The Patton Museum staff and volunteers have been brain-storming over the implications of what we have been finding. We all agree that this is “Cobra King” – no doubts what-so-ever. What the big question has been – what happened to the tank after December 26, 1944.” “We can safely state that the vehicle remained in the 4th Armored Division – and remained as the command tank for Company C until its demise in combat. Yes, in combat – in fact the information we have indicates that the vehicle met its end in March of 1945. We firmly believe that Cobra King was lost with the rest of Company C, 37th Tank Battalion, and Task Force Baum, on the raid on Hammelburg.” “Reminiscences from then Captain Baum, as written in the book “RAID!”, place Cobra King at the assault on Lager Hammelburg, where it was hit and put out of action. Unfortunately, Abe Baum does not note the damage.” “However, what we have for Cobra King is a busted #3 road wheel assembly on the left side and evidence of a fire and subsequent small arms ammunition cook-off inside the BOG (bow gunner/co-driver) position. We have a vehicle that was recovered and taken to, of all places, Lager Hammelburg, where it was left in the yard until the mid-1950s.” Further research by Don Moriarty has revealed that it is likely that Cobra King was actually hit by a Panzerfaust as the convoy was preparing to leave the camp not on the approach as originally thought. It is likely that this was the cause of the damage to the number three left side bogie station. The internal fire is not now thought to have happened at the time of the raid. As there was no main gun ammunition in the tank at the time of the fire and only machine-gun ammunition, it is believed that the Germans attempted to destroy Cobra King by torching her as the 14th Armoured Division approached Hammelburg in April 1945 to prevent it falling back into US hands in an operational condition. “Further, C Company was only informed less than a day before the action, having been selected because it had the most tanks of the battalion. No commander would have abandoned one of his strongest vehicles – a Jumbo with a 76 mm main gun and .50 caliber coax – nor could he abandon his own command vehicle. Interviews with Brigadier General Jimmie Leach, B Company Commander, 37th Tank Battalion, show that even when in a hurry the tanks rarely traveled faster than 15 mph to avoid losing the infantry support, so a marginally slower vehicle wouldn’t have mattered.” “Hammelburg was in the Seventh Army zone of control and 4th Armored Division, under Third Army, never came within 40 miles, with the exception of Task Force Baum. So how would a 4th Armored Division vehicle (Cobra King) end up in a Seventh Army repair facility?” After the war, Cobra King became a monument tank, put on display at various American bases in Germany, Kitzingen (Harvey Barracks), Crailsheim (McKee Barracks), Erlangen (Ferris Barracks), & Vilseck (Rose Barracks) where it remained in obscurity, the wrong registration number painted on its side from one of its numerous repaints. In May 2001, Army Chaplain Keith Goode was checking out monument tanks while serving in Germany. He was locating serial and registration numbers of Sherman tanks on U.S. Army bases. He passed the information onto the G104 Sherman interest group in the U.S. where member/historian Joe DeMarco confirmed that the tank was indeed the actual Cobra King. After learning this information, another member of G104 stationed in Germany, Sgt. Brian Stigall of the Fifth Battalion, Seventh Air Defense Artillery and Steven Ruhnke, First Armored Division museum curator, paid Cobra King a visit and also confirmed the serial number and passed the information up the chain of command. Along with other Army historians, including Patton Museum curator Charles Lemons, the identity of Cobra King was officially confirmed. Cobra King was then shipped to the United States and on to the Patton Museum’s workshops on July 9, 2009 for restoration. Cobra King mid restoration – Source: Don Moriarty At first, the plan was to restore the interior and exterior to the way Cobra King looked on December 26, 1944. However, this plan was altered due to findings in the interior of the tank. It was decided by the then Patton Museum director Len Dyer that the exterior of Cobra King would be restored to how she looked during the Battle of the Bulge, but that the interior would be left showing interior modifications to ammo storage and the damage sustained presumably at Hammelburg. Four Patton Museum volunteers, Don Moriarty, Garry Redmon, Coleman Gusler and Robert Cartwright were selected to work with museum staff on the restoration along with other volunteers who also contributed to the restoration. After a two-year exterior restoration, Cobra King was as finished as possible before she was shipped out to her new home at Fort Benning, Georgia in August 2011. – Patton Museum curator Charles Lemons Cobra King on completion of restoration with the original 75mm gun returned – Picture Don Moriarty Today another Jumbo is in the town of Bastogne.

M4A3E8 Sherman vs. M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo - World Of Tanks..

Poll: E2 vs E8 (46 members have cast votes)

The E2 was just a sub deisgnation of all M4A3 chassis, for example there was also an M4A3E8″easy eight” which used a 76mm long barreled gun, HVSS suspension. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4_Sherman_variantsIt really depends on the circumstances. A Jumbo at the side of a tiger II could easily handle it, but it most likely couldn’t penetrate the front of the tiger II, except for the turret cheeks with the m1 76mm. But a jumbo shouldn’t even be engaging a tiger II, the Americans had M18s and M36s for that. This gives the M4A3E2 boasts nearly 100 mm of frontal armour sloped at 47°, giving it a massive armour upgrade from the regular M4 Shermans. The M4A3E2 features the double layered front armour giving the vehicle its distinctive 101.6 mm total front armour, giving its boast of being better.. Sorry, we've got no plans for mobile versions of this game guide. Have fun using it on our WWW pages.However, the rear does not have any extra armour and is much thinner. The roof of the tank is very thinly armoured as well, only having 19.5 mm on the hull and 25.4 mm on the turret, so beware as artillery barrages tend to set engine compartment modules on fire.

The problem with the Jumbo in-game is simple: it pretends to be a heavy tank, but it is not. The E2 is far too poorly armed and armored to justify its pathetic agility. This deficiency means that the E2 cannot escape unfavorable situations, like other medium tanks, but also lacks the credentials to slug it out like heavy tanks. The frontal armor is the only reinforced facing; although it is substantial and well-angled, in practice the only tanks who fire at the Jumbo from the front are those who know they can penetrate. The E2 almost requires an incapable opponent to come out victorious. Everyone with any experience knows all the tricks to killing the Jumbo. Effectually, the E2 is a rolling coffin.This site is not associated with and/or endorsed by the Wargaming.net or Wargaming.net.

"The M4 Sherman went through its most interesting modification at the end of 1943, when American builders presented a compromise design. It was a direct infantry support tank to be used at the beginning of 1944 during infantry landings in Northern Europe. The solution, which was quite simple, came about after it became clear that the T26E1 heavy assault tank would be ready for full-scale production no earlier than January 1945: boost the tank's armor to 10 cm. At the same time a heavier turret was designed with 10.5 cm armor, the changes together resulting in a tank that weighed in at 38 tons. Experience on the front showed that modernized tracks with fixed grousers were the best option, and they ended up giving the new tank a significant speed boost. It was able to traverse rough terrain at a top speed of 22 mph. WoT Tank Compare v.9.15. The heavy-armored assault variant of the M4A3(75)W.

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example: The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and available in great numbers Personally, despite all the hype about the "easy 8" I prefer the E2, the hull armour is monstrous and I find myself ricocheting many shells from Tier 7 and some 8 as long as it's angled well. The speed is obviously an issue but I don't really notice it too much as I'm fairly used to playing slow meds, like the T26E4 aswell. pixiv..

  1. The US ordinance then took their abundant M4 Shermans in stock and fixed them up for the new role they've been assigned in. Although keeping the same engine, the armour was upped from around 76.2 mm initial thickness to 102 mm and angled at 47 degrees from vertical. This angle would influence later Sherman design such as the M4A3 by changing the original 56 degrees angled glacis with protruding crew hatches to 47 degrees angled glacis without any protrusion from the crew hatches. This modified M4 Sherman's armour when angled would then be 150 mm line-of-sight (LOS) thick and 180 mm effective. The side armour is also increased to 76.2 mm thick and the turret is redesigned to provide more protection. These modified Shermans were designated the M4A3E2 by the Ordnance Department, whereas the nickname "Jumbo" was likely a post-war invention. At the end of the modifications, the Sherman "Jumbo" now weighed about 42 tons and moves a lower speed of 22 miles per hour. A drawback to the increased weight of the Sherman is that the Vertical Volute Suspension System (VVSS) from the Sherman was unable to take the weight easily, so extra care was taken by the crew members to not break the suspension.
  2. To explain further, the M4A1E5 was the designation given to seventeen test Shermans modified in mid 1943 to provide for an improved engine installation. The M4A3E4 was an M4A3(75) Wet Stowage with VVSS up-gunned in the same way. Note that while most or all of the M4A1s would have had..

  5. The Soviet 85 mm can be a threat, so caution is advised when going up against tanks armed with the 85 mm, such as the T-34-85, SU-85, and IS-1. The Jagdpanzer 38(t) and Jagdpanzer IV can be tricky when facing off against them. Their frontal armour is too thick and sloped for the 75 mm M3 gun to have any effect on it. For these two targets, it is advised to target their tracks and transmission and then flank for a side shot, where the armour is much weaker. Finally, the Dicker Max wields a 105 mm that can penetrate the front plate of the M4A3E2 Jumbo, so caution is advised against those as well.
  6. Just recently got the M4 and am having a fun time with it. I've got enough xp and silver to purchase and upgrade either the M4A3E8 Sherman or the M4A3E2 Jumbo. I'm thinking I'll like the higher speed and better gun depression of the upgraded..
  7. g tank when advancing with other mediums, but should not volunteer to lead a charge up the center of the enemy line, even if your teammates are afraid to advance. You will just die alone for no gain. Due to its lower speed and thin side armor, the E2 is vulnerable to other medium tanks in close range brawls. Keep the enemy at pistol range, but out of pistol whipping range, and invite them to attack you. Measured aggression is key, but is an extremely delicate balance in this tank. If you’re taking fire from an unknown source, you should take cover, as you are unlikely to survive a probing trip. Just hide and wait for your spotters to move up.

Ищите видео по WoT The entire upper glacis plate is well angled and does make the 101 mm of plating more effective than it appears, but again, it was intended to bounce shells from the Pak 40 ( 108 mm average penetration in game ). In game, you’ll be facing much higher penetration weapons. The stock turret has 152 mm of armor all around, and most players stick with it for that reason, lower rate-of-fire be damned. The front of the tank has only two true weak spots and they are very small; the machine gun port which is the only hole in the upper glacis, and on the turret above the gun mantle. When applying plunging fire to opponents over an embankment the turret weak spot cannot be hit at all, and the machine gun port is even more difficult to angle fire into. The gun loses 2′ of depression from the tier 5 M4 Sherman. While still a respectable 10′, the gun depression feels inadequate, and it is difficult to apply good plunging fire without exposing yourself.The extra armor was mainly a morale thing, even when the thing was more heavily armored than a heavy. Also one of the pictures detailed the front of a jumbo defeating a 88mm L/56 3 times before a lucky round went through an optic port..I did not see a number for how many M4A3E8s were converted to Jumbos. It says 250 M4A3E2s were ordered, so that doesn’t include the M4A3E8s that were modified. Do you have any data on how many were converted, and if so, could it be added to the article? Thank you, great article!

Skin for Sherman Jumbo for World of Tanks

M4 Sherman - Wikipedi

The M4A3E2 is best in assaulting enemy positions with allies. Its great mobility for a heavy tank, especially with its armour, makes it a vehicle able to charge into battle and take anything head-on with confidence. It can act as a bullet magnet against enemy tanks more worried about the M4A3E2, diverting fire that would've gone to more vulnerable teammates. Though the 75mm gun's AP performance is not suited to the type of enemies expected at the BR, it can still harass enemies and the gun is lethal enough that enemies will be forced to show their front armour towards the Jumbo else a 75 mm penetrates their side armour. Their focus on the Jumbo can allow allies to move around and eliminate them. During all this, take care not to over-angle and show the lower side armour too much as this will allow vehicles to penetrate through down there and damage modules, even the ammunition storage if they are lucky. This page details the development and operational history of the Sherman Jumbo (Medium Tank, M4A3E2) Up-Armored Medium Tank / Assault Tank including technical specifications and pictures Remember, you have good armor. Use it. While in direct combat, always position yourself front towards enemy and sidescrap your vehicle a bit.

M4 Improved M4 Sherman M4A2E4 Sherman M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo M4A3E8 Sherman Easy Eight M4A3E8 Fury M4A3E8 Thunderbolt M4A1 Revalorise Sherman III Sherman Firefly Like the other Shermans, the side and rear armor of the E2 is terrible. Part of the reason the E2 wasn’t deployed in greater numbers or earlier is that US Army studies revealed that most tank losses in WWII were from hits to the side and rear. Equipping additional frontal armor made more sense on a few spearhead tanks than it did for entire battalions given the extra cost and strain on the suspension and transmission. Additional side and rear armor would have completely overloaded the limited suspension.Even before the invasion of Normandy, the Allied commanders had to figure out a method in order to breach heavily-defended fortification lines such as the Siegfried Line blocking the path from France to Germany. One of the solutions was for the implementation of "assault tanks" to enter enemy territory and root out the enemy fortifications. The initial plan was for the production of the M26 Pershing tanks to fulfil this role, but setbacks in its development caused the M26 deployment to be delayed until 1945. A quick solution must be made to fill this "assault tank" role for the invasion of Europe in 1944.

The Fisher Tank Arsenal launched production of the M4A3E2 in May 1944 and finished in June of the same year. The tanks, which were bequeathed the nickname ""Jumbo"", were delivered to Europe that fall and served successfully through the end of the war." Your main target should be the turret, but it requires pretty accurate gun. You should mostly aim under the gun. The armor thickness at that spot is only 70mm and it isn't angled at all. You can try shooting at sides of the turret and the small commander hatch as well, bet they are well angled and penetrating the armor depends on luck. Remember not to shoot at gun mantlet. The armor thickness at that point gets even to 300mm.

EDIT: This article was written pertaining to the 76mm cannon and “Stand and Deliver” play style of that rapid firing gun. I somehow missed the howitzer option in testing, and at some point plan to write a Redux detailing the completely different play style of the 105mm howitzer armed E2 wherein the tank is at least passable and possibly fun.

Skin for an American tank M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo, deserted. M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo camouflage history With the E2’s armor, I do not recommend taking any spotting or stealth gear. The E2 has a high silhouette and isn’t terribly stealthy in the first place. Sitting back to snipe with this tank also further compounds your penetration issues and opens allies with thinner armor to enemy fire. The Jumbo is capable of mounting the Vertical Stabilizer, which will help immensely with shots on the move, and will keep your grouping tighter when making small hull angle adjustments in fire fights. The Improved Gun Laying Drive is probably unnecessary with the Vertical Stabilizer, but is a better option if you’re not moving often. Improved Ventilation is always high on my list of modules, and the third slot should be your preference of Gun Rammer, Spall Liner, or Repair Kit. This is all under the assumption that you have a few gold to de-mount them once you’ve gathered the XP needed to unlock better tanks.It would make a great tank killer, but a lousy allround tank. The point of a Jumbo was having extra armour on a 75 mm gun tank because most targets were guns, infantry and “softer” AFV’s, like StuGs and Panzer IVs.

In the beginning: WOT was clearly better, but WT has grown into a better game. I'll start by saying; I have not played a game of World of Tanks in months. At one point it was my main game.

Avoid shooting at the front of Sherman Jumbo. If you have to, it is best to aim at the lower part of the turret or its sides.The M4A3E2 was well-liked by the crew and commanders due to its protection value. Despite the weight difference and strain on the suspension, it performed reliably and could absorb damage that would otherwise destroy regular Shermans. Later in the war, when the quantity of the M4 Sherman "Jumbos" were unable to meet the demand, George S. Patton ordered for existing M4 Shermans to weld on armour plates scavenged from knocked out tanks to makeshift "on-the-field" Jumbos. This caused the newer Shermans such as the M4A3 (76) W HVSS could have the same protection by welding metal onto the hull. One of the Jumbo's notable participation in the war was in Patton's Third Army where it spearheaded the assault to Bastogne to relieve the pinned down 101st Paratroopers (though they deny needing a "rescue").

In February 1942, the British tank mission in the United States approached the US War Department with the idea of developing a heavy version of the soon to be produced M4 to meet the expected requirement for assaulting fixed enemy defensive lines. It’s likely that the British plan was to ask the Americans to cast a heavier version of the M4A1 by increasing the casting thickness up to 3 ½” (89 mm) on the glacis (front upper hull plate) and 3” (76 mm) on the sponsons (side upper hull plates). Although this early plan came to nothing, the US Ordnance Department didn’t entirely forget about the idea and on 17th December 1943, the General Motors Proving Ground was directed to test an M4A3 with additional loading to a weight of 82,600 lbs (37466 kg). After 500 miles, it was found that “no abnormal failures were encountered. It, therefore, appears feasible to convert a medium tank to an assault tank with a weight of 82,600 lbs. If only limited operation is to be encountered.” This was therefore intended as a vehicle to be used on an as-needed basis and not for long periods of time or distance. The M4A3 test tank with ballast fitted on 18th January 1944. The recently developed extended end connectors were fitted and helped to reduce the ground pressure even with all the additional weight. These extended connectors replaced the standard connectors that were used to join the individual track shoes together and added extra width to the track to disperse the weight of the vehicle. They were often called ‘grousers’. Meanwhile, the Armored Fighting Vehicles and Weapons section (AFV&W) of the US Army European HQ put in an urgent request in January 1944 for 250 heavy tanks for the upcoming campaign in Europe. The request was based on the need for a tank to breach the Siegfried line. The following month, the Development Division of the US Army Ground Forces (AGF) agreed, but as the new T26E2 heavy tank was not expected until the following year, it was recommended that an expedient design should be based on an up-armored M4A3 medium tank. An alternative was offered by the Ordnance department, which proposed the old M6 heavy tank be modified to fulfill the role. The Ground Forces opposed this option because of the many problems of the M6 that were exposed during trials. In March 1944, all parties agreed that the best solution was the up-armored M4 assault tank. On 2nd March, the Ordnance Technical Committee recommended that “the M4A3 with heavier armor be designated Medium Tank M4A3E2.” An order for 250 vehicles with 4 pilot vehicles was recommended and on 23rd March the order was approved. They were to be available to the army by August 1944. The contract was awarded to the Fisher Body Corporation in Detroit. In an unusual move, Fisher was notified in late March that “in order to expedite delivery of the M4A3E2 Assault Tanks, certain requirements of applicable specifications will be waived for the total of 254 vehicles”. Put simply, the US Government trusted Fisher to do the job to the standard required without the need for the normal and rather time-consuming testing regime. This explains how the tank maintained its ‘E’ number designation. The letter ‘E’ stood for experimental and if the Ground Forces found the vehicle unfit for task, Fisher would still have been paid for all 254 ‘experimental’ vehicles which then would have remained in the US. As it was, all vehicles were provisionally accepted and 250 were authorized for overseas shipment at the end of May 1944.In Tier I, Parts should, of course, be the prioritized module for field repairs. This will unlock Tier II modifications and grant access to the very vital FPE and M61 shot, the former for preservation against fires and the latter to improve damage in the battlefield. The M4A3E2 was to have an additional 1 ½” (38 mm) of armor plate welded to the upper hull front and sides, taking the overall thickness to 4” (101 mm) on the front and 3” (76 mm) on the side. The rear upper hull and top were unchanged, as was the lower hull. To ensure a good weld the additional side armor was welded in two pieces with a 2” (50 mm) gap in a vertical center line filled with weld. The additional plate had a keyhole cut into it to allow fitting over the existing bow machine gun ball mount. The standard beading that the dust cover fitted to was then welded to the new plate. The normal lights and sirens were not fitted. The 75 mm gun travel lock was fitted on 3” (76 mm) spacers. Union Steel foundry was subcontracted to cast a heavier final drive assembly cover. The new casting was 3000 lbs (1360 kg) heavier than the standard and had a thickness that varied from 4” (101 mm) to a maximum of 5 ½” (139 mm). The new casting had to have a substantial ridge along the upper edge to allow for the fitting and bolting to the upper hull. Pressed Steel Car was subcontracted to assemble and finish the turrets and gun mounts with the actual casting being done by Union Steel and Ordnance Steel foundries. The turret was based on the T23 76 mm turret with a similar internal layout and a full basket, but the pistol port was eliminated. The thickness was approx 6” (152 mm) all around but it did reduce to 2 ½” (63mm) at the rear below the bulge. The 75 mm gun was installed in a modified M62 Gun Mount normally used for the 76 mm gun. An additional 5” (127 mm) of armor plate were added to the M62’s original 2” (50 mm) cast gun shield, creating a huge mantlet covering nearly ¾ of the turret front. This modified mount was designated ‘Combination Gun Mount T110’. The completed turret weighed in at an impressive 20,510 lbs (9303 kg), roughly 5000 lbs (2267 kg) heavier than the original T23 turret casting. The gun shield alone was 1100 lbs (498 kg) heavier than the standard shield. Combat load included 104 75 mm rounds for the main gun, 600 rounds for the .50 caliber, 6250 rounds for the .30 caliber, 900 rounds of .45 caliber, 18 hand grenades and 18 2” smoke rounds. To allow for all the additional weight of the tank, extended end connectors were fitted as standard to the tracks. These increased the ground contact by nearly 10% and kept ground pressure to a fairly reasonable 14.2 psi, compared with 13.7 psi for a standard M4A3 without extended end connectors. Although the original Ford GAA V8 powerplant was retained, the final drive ratio was increased to 3.36:1. This reduced the top speed to 22 mph (35 km/h), but the tank maintained reasonable acceleration even though it now weighed 84000 lbs (38101 kg). It could climb a 60% slope, cross a 7’6” (2286 mm) trench, climb a 24” (609 mm) vertical wall and ford 36” (914 mm) of water. Fisher completed production in July 1944.Let your voice be heard!

Due to its great mobility as a heavy tank, the M4A3E2 Jumbo can manoeuvre like a medium tank around the battlefield. This is also beneficial to the 75 mm gun as it would permit the M4A3E2 a chance to attack the weaker side armours of enemy vehicles. Once flanking around and finding a prime position in a firing angle right into an enemy chokepoint, minimize exposure to anything but the front armour and the M4A3E2 can remain a formidable obstacle to all opponents. Take care not to be outflanked by enemy players aware of the M4A3E2 position.

Your best bet is to add volume of fire, and try to make yourself a difficult target to hit. Charging an opponent only gives them a flatter angle on your frontal armor. If no convenient ditch is available, just embrace your inner mountain goat. Find a hill, climb it, and bite anyone that gets too close to your tin can. Sadly, even with this advice and the best luck, you’re going to be destroyed easily. On paper, the E2 looks good next to the T-150, but the T-150 has a balanced armor loadout, making angling easier and offering a broader engagement angle to the front. The cannon is also miles ahead. WW2M4 with a T40/M17 Whizbang mounted (i.redd.it). WW2Made a 3D model of a casemate tank destroyer based on the Pz I. Its kinda cute. (i.redd.it)

on top of these facts, the D51080 can mount an improved version of the 76mm gun...the 76mm M1A2, which has an improved fire rate over the 76mm M1A1....however, at the same time, the D51080 can't mount the 105mm SPH M4 L/23 howitzer. So is it worth getting the D51080 or just researching it and.. M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo is a direct successor to the standard M4 Sherman. Jumbo is modified, upgraded version of its predecessor. First important difference is its improved armor. It has been increased twice, front plate now has at least 102mm, and with great angle as it is positioned the real armor thickness is around 120mm. The turret is armored even better, its virtually impenetrable now. Sadly, the cannon hasn't changed. 105mm cannon is still available, but when Jumbo is thrown against tier VI-VIII it doesn't work well. Gun M1A2 76mm with 128mm penetration is far better. But it doesn't allow to play calmly, and the damage dealt is only 115 points. This gun has nice rate of fire which is 18 bullets per minute. In addition to armor another advantage of Sherman Jumbo is its mobility. Top speed is only 35 km/h, but for such armor it is a nice specification. Gameplay style depends on enemy tier. If most of enemies is on same level you can risk frontal attack, but don't get too far ahead. If you're facing tier VII and VIII tanks you should decide on backing up heavy tanks and keep at the second line during the assault. Wot m4a3e2 tier 6 Exactly. A tank may be “impenetrable”…but only when hit square on the armor. The armor is full of gaps, welds, and other weak spots that won’t LIKELY be hit by any given shot….but that shot is going to hit SOMEWHERE, and that’s often directly on a vision slit, a MG ball mount, a weld, a shot trap, the join between turret and hull, the suspension. Even the armor itself varied a great deal; a piece that was given poor heat treatment won’t stand up to the theoretical strength. The Germans had big problems with alloys, finding the correct material, so it really depended on what specific tank you shot at. One Panther might laugh at a hit from an 85mm (frontally, anyway, not from the side or top), while it might punch right through another. A tank might be totally “impervious”, yet the shot will go right through small port anyway. All these kids who spend all their time playing WOT “knowing” which tanks are “invulnerable” to others, but it really has a hell of a lot more to do with luck and tactics than anything. No tank is invulnerable. I like the story about the M8 Greyhound that got on the road behind a Tiger II and knocked it out with its 37mm gun. You tell that to WOT players and they’d insist it was impossible, and quote you the states on the Tiger IIs rear armor and the 37mm gun’s penetration values. Yet the fact remains that IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. They found a weak spot, and killed the tank. Period. The aviation equivalent is “the Golden BB”, where the guy on the ground with an SKS or Moisin-Nagant manages to take out a modern jet with a single lucky bullet. It’s not “impossible”, it’s “unlikely”. But it can, and does happen. You fly an F-22 overhead and a single guy with an AK can shoot it down, if he is lucky.well you see since in today’s world people sometimes mistake a M4A3 and M4A3E2 and if people today make this mistake so did the Germans did but then if a King Tiger (Tiger II) and a Jumbo Sherman came across each other in close quarters combat the King Tiger would win the fight because of its penetration (I think) and so having more armor is good because let say a Panzerfaust hits the the side that doesn’t have any extra armor it will just go right through but if you add extra tracks or even more steel (as an separate but welled plate) it will go into that and the Sherman Jumbo has a higher chance of survival

Most recent version works for all Game clients Aslain's WoT ModPack - One of most frequently updated mod-packs for World of Tanks. We recommend do check daily for updates The E2 variant of the venerable M4A3 Sherman, with its reinforced frontal armor, was intended to head armored columns, making it more difficult for German ambushes to disable the lead tank and thereby stop the entire column. These ambushes typically did not themselves contain tanks; they were infantry ambushes featuring Panzerfausts and 7.5 cm Pak 40 guns. The intent of these ambushes was to halt the column on roads surrounded by intraversible terrain, leaving the entire column unable to maneuver to safety.There is a difference between theory and practice, and in reality no tank no matter how heavily armoured is truly ‘impenetrable’. It depends highly on the range the shot was fired from and the angle and location of where it impacts. For instance as the Article mentions an M4E2 was penetrated through the periscope port on the mantlet despite it being a rather small opening in the armour.The M4A3E2 looks like a normal Sherman medium tank, but it is still a very heavy tank and is used as a breakthrough tank to attack fortified enemy positions. It is certainly not a medium tank like normal Shermans. It is a great tank when fighting Tigers as the 88mm cannons cannot penetrate the armour of the M4A3E2 from its sides when angled efficiently. As such it allows players to get close to Tigers and attack them from the sides, or force them to retreat. When fighting Panthers the M4A3E2 is less effective as the 75mm cannon on the Panther can penetrate the armour of the Jumbo Sherman from the front even when angled more than 30 degrees at 500 meters. Only at close range can high-velocity guns, such as Soviet 85mm or German 88mm guns, penetrate the frontal glacis. However, larger calibres, such as the Soviet 122mm gun, will slice right through the armour.

Actually, in a close range combat situations. The Jumbo’s does have an advantage here unless if they’re on head to head combat. German Tank Commanders who commanded Heavy Tanks such as the Tiger-I and the King Tigers preferred to engage Allied Tanks from longer ranges, attacking Allied Tanks from 800, 500 and 100 Yards would be considered suicide due to it’s Mobility and Better Situational awareness because of Shermans having better Periscopes being traversable and does have well-placed Vision Blocks on their Cupolas. But real Tank combat is all about who shoots first, the first shot is enough to scare away any WW2 Medium and Heavy Tanks that leads the Tanker how exposed they were to enemy fire.When considering crew skills, you’ll want to make selections for the tank you want after the E2. If you do dedicate a crew to the E2 (God help you), I would start with Brothers in Arms. I’ve seen this skill turn the T-44 from a barely adequate victim into a versatile fighting machine. While I’m a fan of Safe Stowage, Armorer and Preventive Maintenance I’m not sure the benefits outweigh the advantages of Brothers in Arms and repair in this case. If you’re taking heavy fire it’s possible, as in my first example match, to lose several modules in a row which repair will help mitigate. As long as you’re good at denying the enemy flanking shots, you should be at little risk of ammunition rack detonation or engine fire anyway. You should not be wading directly into the enemy’s midst as in a proper heavy tank.Then in Tier III, Crew Replenishment should be obtained for crew survival improvement and the APCR T45 shot for improved armour-piercing power. After that, everything else could be done at one's own priorities, but Engine should be invested for better automotive performances and M89 for the smoke capabilities. I am waiting for the buffs to the American lines that I believe are coming next, its overdue some of these older tanks are starting to show the cracks, hoping the pen gets a little boost and the 0.38 dispersion also improves.Because the E2 operates in a hybrid area between medium and heavy playstyles, there are actually a surprising number of reasonable gear choices, and the fine detail depends on how you play. I’d stick with the small first aid kit, small repair kit, manual fire extinguisher for consumables. The added horsepower from 100 octane gasoline will not make enough of a difference to be worth the expense, and I wouldn’t waste the credits on premium consumables. Your armor will bounce an incredible amount of damage from light tanks and low-tier opponents if positioned properly; regardless, with that many shells hitting you, things are going to break and people are going to get hurt, so you’ll want the consumables to handle it.

Assault Tank M4A3E2 Jumbo

The first vehicles arrived in the New York port on the 14th of August 1944. On the 29th, the 12th Army Group was informed by the War Dept that 250 M4A3E2 Assault tanks had been released and would be in the ETO in September. On the 1st September, the 3rd Armored Division put in a request for 150 M4A3E2s from 12th Army Group. The first 128 Jumbos arrived in France via Cherbourg on the 22nd September 1944. Full records of exactly how the Jumbos were issued are difficult to identify as the tank were often only recorded as ‘Medium Tank M4A3’ with no distinction between a standard M4A3 and an M4A3E2. But partial records have been traced although some do seem to conflict. The first thirty six tanks were issued to the US First Army on the 14th October and were then issued to individual tank battalions. Fifteen to the 743rd, fifteen to the 745th and six to the 746th. On the 18th October, Normandy beach depots recorded having seventeen on hand, twenty four released to Armies and nineteen on route to Third Army. By the 24th October Army allocations for delivery had been confirmed as: First Army – 105 M4A3E2 Jumbos Third Army – 90 M4A3E2 Jumbos Ninth Army – 60 M4A3E2 Jumbos Clearly someone at 12th Army Group needed a little extra work on their basic maths! The last recorded delivery was on the 9th November when 746th Tank Battalion of the First Army was issued a further nine Jumbo’s. The tanks were well received and the advantages of the additional armor were quickly appreciated. Jumbos were chosen to be the standard point tank any time advances were made with opposition expected. A 76 mm armed Jumbo of the 3rd Armoured Division, Cologne, 6th March 1945. Crews did still feel the need to add more armor and sandbags were a common addition to the glacis and in a few cases concrete was used. The additional weight of 4”-6” (101-152 mm) of concrete right on the nose of the tank must have made it a very difficult proposition to drive. The front bogie was almost certainly beyond its maximum weight capacity by that point and a mechanical failure on the front bogies was most likely a case of when, not if. M4A3E2 of 743rd Tank Btn, Altdorf, 27th November 1944. Sandbags covered with hessian and possible turf on the glacis. M4A3E2 with concrete applique on glacis, date and location unknown (frame from a US Army Signal Corp film) Because of the nature of their employment, the Jumbos suffered heavy losses. The 4th Armoured Division alone recorded 24 M4A3E2s lost in action in their after action report at the end of the war. Twenty four lost in one division may not sound like a lot, but when it is considered that nearly 10% of the total production run of the vehicle was lost in one division it shows they clearly bore the brunt of the fighting wherever they were present. Even with all the additional armor, Jumbos were still as vulnerable to mines as any other tank (minefields often covered approach routes to German positions) and concentrated anti-tank gun fire. This Jumbo of 743rd Tank Battalion was knocked out on 22nd November 1944 near Lohn, Germany. It was hit by four 88 mm rounds from an anti-tank gun 800 yds (730 m) away. One bounced off the glacis plate and two off the manlet before the fourth actually penetrated through the gunners telescope opening (chalked ‘9’ by Divisional Intelligence staff). Another Jumbo of 743rd Tank Battalion also knocked out in the same operation. This one was disabled by a ‘friendly’ mine and abandoned by its crew with no casualties. After it was abandoned the Germans concentrated anti-tank fire on it to ensure it wasn’t recoverable. During February 1945, approximately 100 M4A3E2s were upgunned to 76 mm using guns recovered from knocked out 76 mm armed M4s and normal supply stocks. This upgrade was a fairly straight forward field modification, as the combination gun mount was originally designed for this gun. The more complicated part of the conversion was the modification of the main gun ammunition stowage. This required removing the turret and the fitting of 76 mm racks in place of the shorter 75 mm racks. These replacement racks were then secured in place with a series of fabricated welded braces. Records indicate that conversion took 75 man hours per tank. Out of the 250 sent to Europe, today there are believed to be eight complete survivors and one further hull and turret. Of the four test vehicles that remained in the States, none survived. Of these four, only one cannot be positively accounted for. The first was destroyed during impact testing as stated above. The second was used as a post war test bed for two different flame thrower tanks and was then used as a range target at Ft Knox. The third was sent to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for additional testing. Its disposition is unknown but it was likely scrapped. As for the fourth, it was last reported in a depot in Pennsylvania in 1945. It may still be somewhere awaiting discovery but in all likelihood it was also scrapped. This up armored M4A3 (76) HVSS of the 4th Armoured Division shows the addition of armor plate to the glacis and turret. Alongside the up gunning of the Jumbo’s, the 12th Army Group commissioned the building of what became known as Field Expedient Jumbos. These were M4A3 (76) HVSS (often called M4A3E8s or Easy Eights) with additional armor welded to the glacis and turret. These tanks often achieved very near levels of armor to the original Jumbos. The additional armor was scavenged from wrecked tanks. Other M4s and Panthers were preferable. Entire glacis plates from wrecked M4s could be cut out and welded to the new vehicle without needing to move gun travel locks or cutting new apertures for the bow machine-gun. Much of this work was carried out by three civilian factories with an allowance of 85 man hours per vehicle. A report from the 6th Armoured Division noted the success of these Expedient Jumbo’s. ‘A recently modified M4A3E8 took a direct hit from a German 75 mm shell with the only resulting damage being the complete separation of the middle section of additional armour from the hull. The tank continued in the action and succeeded in “knocking out” the opposing vehicle.The crew whose lives were saved by this additional protection were loud in their praise of this modification.’These tanks were known as “Jumbo” by the 735th Tank Battalion. From the After Action Report, Page 44, Summary for November 1944, http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ref/collection/p4013coll8/id/3596. b. The new “Jumbo” type tanks was first used during this period with very good results. One of these was hit by a bazooka and one by a 75mm AT gun. Very little damage was done by the bazooka and none of the crew were injured. The 75mm pierced the tank but it was at the point where the armor was thinnest, and it is not thought that it would have pierced the tank at any other point. None of the crew were injured. It is the opinion of this Bn that these tanks should be supplied in sufficient quantity to at least allow the placing of one platoon (5) of them with each Co. The above text about “Jumo” not being a war time nickname seems to be incorrect.

WoT Guru. World of Tanks Weak Spots, Tank Guides, and Tips. The M4A3E2 is a tier 6 American medium tank that is better known as the Jumbo Sherman by most players. Unlike most American mediums in World of Tanks the M4A3E2 has great armor for a medium in it's tier On the 8th June, tank 50326 was shipped to the Chrysler Tank Arsenal Proving Ground in Detroit for endurance trials. After some 400 miles which resulted in one broken spring it was however noted that the same “low milage failures had been experienced with standard weight vehicles”. It was apparent though that the additional weight of the Jumbo was seriously taxing the standard vertical volute suspension of the M4. The difference can be seen between the three different bogie sets in the picture taken at Aberdeen. The middle and front bogies are clearly overloaded with the front set arms almost horizontal. As a result, the following order was issued “One thing that users must realise is that, in rough cross-country operation, the front volute springs will fail if permitted to ‘bottom’ violently”. After the endurance test, tank 50326 was sent to Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) for ballistic testing. As these tests took place in September 1944 some time after the M4A3E2 was released for overseas shipment the tests were for “information purposes only”. The tank was tested to destruction. While the frontal armor of the E2 was significantly stronger, the rest of the armor was no thicker than that found on conventional M4 variants. However, the E2 still had better survivability than other M4 variants, and there were never enough to satisfy the demand, leading to many “field expedient” upgrades of non-E2 M4s using salvaged armor slabs. The additional armor carried by the E2 did not stress the transmission and suspension as much as expected, and, if driven conservatively, the tank was mechanically sound. Most importantly, the E2 was capable of surviving numerous hits to the frontal armor that would gut a standard M4. Given its increased survivability, most commanders wanted as many Jumbos as possible.I have something to add to the above article. My uncle (James Garland Murphy-Bryan, Tx.) was aboard the Cobra King when it broke into Bastogne, Belgium on 26 Dec. 1944. He was killed in his tank on 19 March 1945 near Bad Kruesnech Germany, from my understanding he was the only man killed when his tank was hit and burned. What I would like to know was this the Cobra King he was in when he was killed. If so, would we have been able to repair the tank in time to join the Raid at Hammelburg?The Jumbo was impenetrable from the front by the Tiger I, save for the mg port. Even IS-2’s 122mm D-25-t was theoretically incapable of penning the frontal plate or turret of the M4A3E2.
