Default M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman in game icon incorrect

Don,

I was looking around and came across the M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman icon # 1089. For some reason it has the standard 75mm armed Sherman turret instead of the Jumbo turret? The Jumbo was only produced with one turret and one main gun, the 75mm M3 gun. Icon # 1198 has the proper Jumbo turret, but has the 76mm M1 gun. That was only a field modification. They did not produce any 76mm gun Jumbos. The production Jumbo turret should remain. The 75mm gun was removed and a 76mm gun installed.

The wrong turret .bmp file was put in the .shp file?

Yes....something like that. It will be corrected once I ensure no other "Sherman" in the game is using 1089 in error

EDIT....... OK I checked the only units using 1089 are the ones that should be using 1089 and a gun corrected version of the turret is now in the patch folder to be entered

The jumbo with 76mm (unit 22) is there with an X3 radio code for the human player to use if he wants the up-gunned version. It has a turret icon with the long 76mm, as is to be expected.

Units 10 and 107 have the 75mm gun (and turret icon) but both also use the exact same LBM as the 76mm version, so they need a new picture.

The original Jumbos were only built with the 75 but as of Feb 1945 they were converted to the 76 so the 76 is a perfectly legitimate mod.....there were more than just one or two converted. ALL 254 M4A3E2s left the Fisher tank arsenal with the 75mm M3 gun.......M4A3E2s were upgunned with the M1AC 76mm guns starting in late February 1945

New PICs showing the 75 armed version are ready as is the corrected turret with the stock 75

Yes but the turret shape is incorrect. The 76 version uses the correct turret but needs a shorter gun....

Yes, the 76mm is viable. Just making you aware of the Icon error.
