General Information
The Sherman V M4A4 was a similar shape to the M4 but had a lengthened welded hull and was powered by the Ordnance RD-1820 engine producing 497HP.
The cast turret carrying the gyro stabilised 75mm Gun M3 was the same as that of the Sherman I.
As with the earlier Sherman I the drive sprocket was at the front, the track went under 3 double bogie wheels onto the idler, then back over 3 return rollers.

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 88 54 25 15 3

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
