M4 on steroids but still kosher. 

 

 

Those things look big until Nick sits on them...

My mind writhed a bit each time he said, 'M3 Sherman'... :o

There was also M4, but that one was armed with 105mm howitzer and ended converted to M50s.

As Nick have noted, IDF Shermans are Spanish Hapsburg level complicated.

Yep.  The Tank Encyclopedia and Restoration Passion videos went into great detail, but Nick's offering is still interesting and enlightening.  I'm looking forward to Pt.2!

Why the barbed wire coil on the front?

Apparently it represents the coils of wire tanks carried to secure their positions when they laagered up for the night.  Vehicles in Vietnam also carried wire

true, they start out with a lot of different models and by sort of inbreeding all end up being M50'ies or M51's 🙂
