While the 76mm M1A1 and M1A2 may only seem to differ in rate of fire, it is important to note that the M1A2 is slightly more accurate than the M1A1, which can make all the difference in this tank's role of providing support for better armored vehicles. Adding the vertical stabilizer makes the M4A3E8 with a 76mm Gun M1A2 a formidable opponent in close combat as well. By circling the enemy, the E8 is more than capable of devastating higher tier tanks with the high penetration and high rate of fire.
