The M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo is an American tier 6 medium tank.

This variant of the Sherman featured much heavier armor. The M4A3E2 was initially intended as an infantry support tank. However, some were re-equipped with the M1A1 gun and served as tank hunters.

Sloped and thicker armor gives this tank a chance to bounce more shells compared to other Shermans, but the Jumbo is slower and less maneuverable. It has armor rivaling the heaviest tanks around its tier, and even tanks above it like the T29 and Tiger tanks. in addition, it is also smaller than comparable heavy tanks, making it harder for artillery to hit you. It possesses a medium's firepower and health pool, combined with a heavy's armor and speed. As a result, you will be forced to try and play smart - keep flashing your frontal armor and gun mantlet, and fire your gun at weak spots in the enemy armor. Due to its thick armor and lack of maneuverability, the Jumbo tends to be more successful when played like a heavy than as a medium tank. Overall, the Jumbo is both very comfortable for beginners and very rewarding for veterans.

The M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo leads to the T29 and the T20.

Historical Info

In June–July 1944, the Army accepted a limited run of 254 of M4A3E2 Jumbo Shermans, an up-armored version of the venerable M4 Sherman series with thicker armor and the 75 mm gun in a heavier T23-style turret. The Jumbo had even thicker frontal armor than the Tiger I and was intended for assaulting hardened enemy fortifications in the allied push to break out of the Normandy beachhead. It entered combat in August 1944,

The "Jumbo," nicknamed came from her crews, due to the extra size from the added armor (including 4 inches on front), but at a slower about 3-4 mph. Built with 75 mm gun, it was frequently re-armed with 76-mm guns by the using units. Users: US, France (one vehicle)

M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo: Some units replaced the original 75 mm gun with a 76 mm gun.

During the war, U.S. crews found that on soft ground such as mud or snow, the narrow tracks gave poor ground pressure compared to wide-tracked second-generation German tanks such as the Panther. Soviet experiences were similar and tracks were modified to give better grip in the snow. The U.S. Army issued extended end connectors or "duckbills" to add width to the standard tracks as a stopgap solution. Duckbills were original factory equipment for the heavy M4A3E2 Jumbo to compensate for the extra weight of armor.
