The M4 Sherman was a mainstay of Allied armor units throughout WWII and over 50,000 examples were produced. Many variants were created to meet specific battlefield requirements and among these was the M4A3E2, known to infantrymen as the "Jumbo," which was produced as a modified M4A3 in 1944 to meet requirements for a heavily armored assault tank capable of close infantry support at the European Front in 1944. Armor protection on the front and sides of the hull were increased to 101mm and 76mm respectively. The new cast turret featured 152.4mm perimeter, a 178mm thick gun shield, and mounted a 75mm M3 gun. Its powerplant was a powerful Ford V8 engine which pumped out 500hp. Production of the M4A3E2 began in May 1944, with 254 units being delivered by July. This model assembly kit recreates the M4A3E2 "Jumbo" in detail and includes a commander and driver figure to give the model life.
