[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

M4A1 Revalorisé


VIII

annoF73_M4A1_Revalorise.png

7200

The M4A1 Revalorisé is a French tier 8 premium medium tank.

In the 1950s, the M4 Sherman of various modifications was supplied to France as part of MDAP. French design bureaus started modernizing the vehicle with the goal of improving its firepower. This initiative was followed by a modernization program for the Israel Defense Forces (Sherman M51). The tank never saw service in France. The number of prototypes built is unknown.

Also known as "ISherman (Israeli Sherman, as its very simialr to it)" or M4A1 "Ravioli" (or other names that resembles word "Revalorise"). At first glance, it's basically just an M4 Sherman with a bigger gun, painted in French colours, and bumped up three tiers. But it's a lot more complicated than that. When its strengths and weaknesses are well-understood, the M4A1 Revalorisé can become a rather effective tank hunter in Tier VIII, and even Tier IX games.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

-Default ammo is APCR with extremely high shell velocity (comparable to tier 10 mediums!)

-Best alpha damage (along with the T-34-3) of all Tier 8 premium medium tanks.

-Good gun handling. Very accurate when fully aimed and high gun depression.

-Good view range.

-Decent HP pool for its size (1400)

-Cheapest Tier 8 premium tank (same as T26E4 SuperPershing).

-Good credit maker with high damage per shot and fairly cheap shell cost.


Cons:

-Weak armor that can only provides some lucky bounce and pretty low camo values. Despite it was mostly used as sniper.

-Long reload time and low DPM.

-Vulnerable ammo rack and frontal transmission.

-Poor upper gun elevation.

-Fairly below average speed and power to weight ratio.

-Premium HEAT is lacking in penetration and compares somewhat poorly to APCR.

-No preferential matchmaking. Combine that with poor premium round, long reload time and fairly below average speed. Makes its hard to play in tier 10 match.


Performance

One could compare this vehicle to the British Tier 6 Sherman Firefly, as the Revalorisè is also an M4 variant equipped with a larger gun. The similarities end here however, as this tank's gun is the exact opposite of the British 17 Pdr. - massive, with a very high damage per shot, and with a glacial reload speed. It also benefits from good gun handling and great gun depression (similar to American tanks).

The gun's behaviour, lack of armor and mediocre mobility make this tank best played as support, firing from the second line, or a sniper thanks to its very high shell velocity and decent accuracy. Do note however that the default ammo is APCR, which has worse normalization than AP and so struggles more against sloped armor, and that the penetration is not that great either.

Always try to minimize exposure by making use of cover (be it scenery or even allied tanks) and abuse your gun depression, and never try to brawl as the Revalorisè has no armor and takes well over ten seconds to reload between shots. Also, try to let the gun fully aim before firing, again due to the very long reload time.

Historical Info

The M4A1 Revalorisé (improved/upgraded) was a French project to up-gun the M4 Sherman. This was done by mounting a 105mm L/51 onto the T23 model turret of a M4A1. The turret required a large counterweight added to the rear, as well as a large muzzle brake and new low pressure HEAT ammunition for the cannon to function. The 105mm L/51 mounted on the Revalorisé is a shortened version of the 105mm CN 105-57 mounted on the AMX-30. The gun was vastly different from the old 105mm M4 howitzer, and fired HEAT rounds at over 900 m/s.


Eventually this led to The Sherman M-50 and the Sherman M-51, both known abroad as the Super Sherman that served with the Israel Defense Forces from the mid-1950s to early 1980s taking after the French Revalorisé. These conversions were all done in Israel using guns purchased from France, aside from the initial M4A1 Revalorisé that was produced in France. In addition to mounting the guns and modifying the turrets, Israel also converted these M4A1 Shermans to use the HVSS suspension, replacing the outdated and less efficient VVSS. They also replaced the original engines with the much more efficient 460hp Cummins VT8-460 diesel engine. The M-51 was also referred to as the Isherman (i.e. Israeli Sherman). However, the designations "Super Sherman" and "Isherman" were never used by the Israeli Defense Forces. The tank never served in combat for France and the number of vehicles created is unknown.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* The Continental R975 engine is considerably more powerful than it is in real life, with 550 horsepower compared to the historical 350-400.
