M4A3E2 Sherman “Jumbo”
History of the tank
The U.S. military had a shortage of heavy tanks which they compensated for by installing additional armor, a heavier turret, and a gearbox designed for a heavier tank on 250 of its Shermans. This is how the M4A4E2 "Jumbo" was created, a variant with a 76 mm cannon, ready to take on German 75 mm and 88 mm cannons. Their biggest advantage was the striking resemblance to the standard M4 Shermans, which is why the enemy could not spot them until they came closer or until it was too late.
INFO FOR PLAYERS: The Sherman “Jumbo” tank has extremely good armor and a strong cannon, but has extremely poor mobility. In line with other tanks, we call Sherman “Jumbo” a goalkeeper because it is best for defensive tasks. It is recommended for players who are calmer, just starting to play or those who may need more time to make decisions.
