[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.

The Sherman III is a British tier 5 medium tank.

The American M4A2 medium tank was manufactured with a diesel engine and supplied under Lend-Lease to the U.K., where it was designated the Sherman III. A total of 5,045 of these tanks were supplied to the U.K. during the war.

The Sherman III leads to the Sherman Firefly.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good speed. On par with the M4 Sherman
  • Can mount 6-pdr gun M4 Sherman does not have, and 76mm has slightly higher ROF
  • Straight angled hull compared to the M4's egg shape hull which allows for more effective angling of the hull
  • Excellent gun-depression at -10 degrees
  • Large ammo capacity for the M1A1 76mm gun (71 rounds), but less than the American M4's gun (90 rounds) as of the latest patch


Cons:


  • Low premium ammo penetration compared to the M4 Sherman (Premium AP instead of APCR)
  • 2 degrees less gun depression than M4, although it's still good at -10
  • All "American guns" (75mm M3, 76mm M1A1, 105mm M4) that can be mounted are not the same guns from the US M4; must be research
  • Fatally tall silhouette, easily destroyed if focused on like M4
  • All gun selections have mediocre accuracy


Performance

The Sherman III is comparable to its American brethren. Any tactic which works for the M4 Sherman would certainly work for the Sherman III. However, there are a few differences. The Sherman III has 465 hitpoints, slightly higher than the 460 hitpoints the M4 Sherman has. It is also slightly lighter. The Sherman III also has a squared-off hull versus the rounded hull of the M4 Sherman, making angling easier.

The gun selection, while largely similar, has some differences. The 75mm Gun M3 and the 105mm M4 are virtually the same between them, except that credit-purchased ammunition for the Sherman III's 105mm M4 are slightly more expensive. The Sherman III has a fast-firing, high-penetration but low alpha damage 6-pdr gun, which is unavailable on the M4 Sherman. The Sherman III's 76mm Gun M1A1 shoots slightly faster than the 76mm Gun M1A1 on the M4 Sherman. However, the 76mm Gun M1A1 on the M4 Sherman receives excellent premium ammunition, with 177mm of armour penetration, enough to deal with all but the most heavily armoured targets it will encounter. Instead of these APCR rounds, the 76mm Gun M1A1 on the Sherman III receives improved AP rounds with 149mm of armour penetration.

The Sherman III has less maximum ammunition for the 76mm M1A1 gun. It can only carry 71 rounds as to the M4 Sherman's 91 rounds. This means that the Sherman III has at least 2000 less potential damage than the M4 Sherman when using the 76mm guns. This difference in ammunition count is only manifest during lengthy shoot-outs that these tanks can actually survive long enough in. But, as with its American counterpart, the Sherman III does not excel in survivability.

These differences are rather inconsequential when playing the Sherman III. Like the M4, flanking tactics should be attempted with the 76mm Gun M1A1 or the 6-pdr Mk.V and brawling tactics should be used with the 105mm M4. Hull-down positions are very viable, and are very effective despite the reduced gun depression. Avoid taking hits; while its frontal armour can hold up to low-calibre guns and automatic cannon, it should not be relied on.

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.

This tank is a mixture of several different models of Sherman. The British Sherman III is the same as the American M4A2, equipped with the General Motors 6046 diesel engine. Tanks that used Wright Continental engines were called Sherman I in British service. Shermans with the Chrysler A57 Multibank engine were called M4A4 or Sherman V. It also has a different, longer hull due the bigger size of the engine.

The fixed twin .30-caliber machineguns protruding from the hull were mounted only on some very early Sherman II (M4A1) tanks. They would most likely not have been present on the Sherman III.

Of the tanks listed above, only the Sherman I/M4A1 was equipped with a 105mm howitzer.
