History:
About British Sherman Tanks 
       The British received far more M4 medium tanks, approximately 17,000 (roughly 34% of all M4s produced), than any other Allied nation.
      In the British naming system the major variants were identified by Mark numbers, the M4 being "Sherman I", the M4A1 "Sherman II" and so on. Letters after the mark number denoted modifications to the base model: "A" for the 76 mm L/55 gun instead of the 75mm, "B" for the 105 mm M4 L/22.5 howitzer, "C" for the (British) QF 17 pounder (76.2 mm) gun, and "Y" for the wider tracked HVSS type suspension.

      Sand color with tonal variations. The shiny appearance is due to a thin layer of Future applied with an airbrush, to receive the decals ...
