Recently some of you may have noticed I did an article on the possibility I fading a sherman line, and I got pretty good results overall, but I want to see what you guys think about each individual tank so I'm going to do post to see if you want them in a Sherman tree, want them as a premium, or don't want them, as well as what stats and tier you want them at.

To see the sherman tree discussion look here:

http://forum.worldof...47#entry7143047

 

So, I was looking around for a potential tier IV for a sherman tree when I found this little baby, it's an M3 Grant, but it has what appears to be a 75mm turret!

It looks like a stock M4 just with a straight hull instead of the eggshell hull. I don't think it would really add anything to the game.

Look at the back end of the hull, you see the difference between the M3 and the M4 in the back of the hull mostly.

What would it add to the game?

Google image search it. It's the British Grant command variant: Wikipedia

I think that was a command version of the M3 with a fake turret and gun on it. A lot of command versions of tanks would mount a fake gun, so the enemy would not how it was a command vehicle.

Really? Let me take a closer look... Now that you mention it the gun does look a bit skinny at the beginning part. But of course plenty of non existent things have been made by war gaming, so they may add a version that has a not fake turret and a not fake gun, I mean look at some of the new tanks, they didn't even get around to getting wood to make a prototype of those, even the T71 was made from a design prototype that was simply a small wooden model. So who knows, maybe they'll think of something. I'm just grasping at straws to find a suitable tier IV to make a sherman based tech tree, because most tech tree splits seem to happen around tier IV

Just because they've added fake tanks in the past doesn't mean they should add more in the future.

Looks more like a sleeve to protect the gun than an actual 75mm

He is right, read the description of the British M3 Command.

 

Grant Command

 

Grant fitted with map table and extra radio equipment and having guns removed or replaced with dummies.
