The T14 is an American tier 5 premium heavy tank.

Developed between May 1942 and May 1943. Two prototypes were manufactured and tested. However, mass production was canceled, and T14 never became more than an experimental vehicle.

Classified as a heavy tank, the T14 is actually a stock, up-armored, M4 Sherman. It was part of a failed joint project between the United States and the United Kingdom. While it is the weakest heavy tank for its tier, it is quite capable of making short work of any medium tank at or below its tier. It has good speed for a heavy tank, although it is slow to accelerate and climb in hilly terrain. In addition, it has thick side skirts like the T1 Heavy Tank, and can thus effectively absorb HE damage on the sides. Its primary weakness is the gun penetration as it can struggle to damage heavy tanks its tier or above. It does get a good rate of fire, and it can lay out damage quickly. It is thus a very good support tank - while you do not have the armor to take hits directly, it can help heavier armored allies. However the T14 has more favorable MatchMaking since patch 7.2, so difficult opponents should appear less often. It is most effective when in a hull down position, as, like most American heavy tanks, it has great turret armor. It is comparable to the M4A2E4 Sherman medium tank, but has less frontal hull armor in exchange for thicker side and turret armor.

Historical Info

The Assault Tank T14 was a joint project between the United States and the United Kingdom. The T14 tank was supposed to be a design that was to be shared by both countries to give an infantry tank for British use.

The pilot model was not produced by 1944, by which time the British Churchill I tank had been in service for two years and was greatly improved over its initial model. The T14 project never came to fruition. US efforts of working on a similarly well-armored tank with a higher speed for use other than as infantry support led to the T20 tank.

Design and development

In 1941, the head of the United States Ordnance Department traveled to Britain to discuss designing a well-armed and armored combat vehicle, one that was stronger than the British Tank, Infantry, Mk IV (A22) "Churchill", then under production.

The tank design would have a 6 pdr or a US 75 mm gun sharing many parts with the M4 Sherman, but with armor twice as thick as that of the M4 at 100 mm thick.

The British initially ordered 8,500 in 1942. Testing of the pilot model, which was completed in 1944, showed the vehicle to be much too heavy for practical use. By this time, the British Army was already using the Churchill and further production of the T14 was halted. Only 2 were built; one tested in the US and the other sent to Britain.[2] The example sent to Britain survives in the Bovington tank museum.
