Anyone seen this before? I just saw it in episode 4 of Battleplan on ITV, circa 45:00 minutes plus some seconds. A US tank in the Korean war apparently.

M4A3R3 'Zippo' Sherman. the 75mm gun was supplemented by a flamethrower in the turret

The gun mantlet is different, reminiscent of the 105mm mantlet

IIRC, the A3R3 vairant initially had the 75mm howitzer, but there was consideration of mounting the 105mm gun.

USMC 105mm Howitzer Sherman with flame gun - the last US M4's to serve as combat vehicles, until the late 50's when they adopted the M67 flame tank variant of the M48
