I hope this answer restores harmony to the Burden household.
All versions of the Sherman series of tanks were made from homogeneous
steel armour. The upper hull armour of the M4A1 version was of a single
cast piece, giving it a rounded appearance while the armour of the other
models was of both rolled plates and cast sub components that were
welded together giving an angular appearance. If there are any other
questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
