>This is a really neat site, especially for those of us who are involved with Shermans. I build Canadian subject dioramas. Could you answer one question, did Canada use the M4A3 in WWII, more specifically the late version with the 47 degree front hull glacis?
Glad to hear you like the site.
To answer your question: none of the Commonwealth Armies used the M4A3. Britain got five 56 degree hull M4A3s, but did not use them in action. The 47 degree hull M4A3 was used by the US alone.
