Hello, everyone!


I am going to reveal a little about myself. I am currently employed at an archive and have been assigned to a home movie collection.

In the midst of the hundreds of digitized films, one contained footage of a tank being hoisted and lowered into the hold of a liberty ship (I am almost certain the ship was the SS Robert E. Clarkson, due to life preserver show to have "E. Clarkson" written on it). While I have guessed the tank is an M4 Sherman, I do not know which variant it is. Furthermore, this tank has the "tiger mouth" similar to the Ripper.


I have attached a screenshot of the tank in question. I would appreciate any help in identifying the tank. Thank you.

Un tanque... grrrande!

I would list the tanks in my garage, but my massively growing Tank Division won't allow it.

Looks like a regular M4 Sherman with something painted on the front plate. But I could be wrong.

Is that perhaps a M4 Composite?

Looks like an M4A1 with some applique armor added to the side of the turret, it is probably getting shipped to either Britain or Russia as part of the lend-lease program.
