Default PzKpfw M4 748 (a)

Attached is my attempt to replicate a M4A3 in Late War German multi-color tone camo as a Panzerkampfwagen M4-748 (a).

The following known Shermans were captured per Beutepanzer (LINK)


2 x M4A1 in North Africa

"Several" M4 in Italy

Greatest use was after Normandy:

21 Pz Div (4 tanks)
25 PzGr Div (4 tanks)
10 SS Pz Div (10 tanks)
PzBrigade 150 (10 tanks)
sPzAbt 503 (Captured Firefly from 148th RAC/33d Armored Brigade in Mid-July 1944)

5.Fallschirmjäger Division captured 6 x M4 tanks during the fighting near Wiltz on 19 December 1944.

I./ SS. Panzer-Regiment 10 captured 12 x M4A3 75 W of the 43rd Tank Battalion on 17 January 1945.

In August of 1944, the Captured Tank Company 281 established a platoon of five Sherman tanks (with 7.5 cm guns) that had been captured in Russia.

10 SS-panzer Division reported that they had one operational Sherman on 15 April 1945 in 5/SS-Panzer-Regiment 10

On 8 May 1945, the 3. PzKompanie of PzJagAbt 346 had the following composition: 5 PzKpfw III and 3 Sherman tanks. 1 x 7.62cm Sherman and 2 x 7.5cm Sherman.


On 31 March 1945, Panzer Company Berka was set up using the Berka Test Center tanks:

3 x Jagdpanzer 38 (1 with recoilless gun)
1 x Pz IV
2 x Pz III
2 x Sherman 75mm (50~ rds ammo)
1 x Sherman 76mm (50~ rds ammo)


About 2 (or 3) M4 Shermans were found knocked out in Berlin in May 1945 (possibly from Kummersdorf Proving Ground)

Interesting information and a very nice job on the icon/graphic.

1296 but especially 1297 that already exist in the files would be suitable for scenario use of captured Shermans used by German forces 1944-1945

If you find you are constantly reacting to your enemy's tactics instead forcing the enemy to react to yours, you are losing the battle....
