The M4 "Sherman" was an American-made, mass-produced medium tank. It proved effective during the Second World War, seeing extensive use in the Pacific and European theaters.
The Sherman is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1942 as the United States Army's, United States Marine Corps', British Army's and Canadian Army's standard medium tank. It spawns regularly at certain flags controlled by any of the aforementioned factions. It is equal to other medium tanks in speed, maneuverability and size, but holds a superiority in frontal hull and turret armor compared to the IJN's Type 97 Chi-Ha, and slightly rear-turret and rear-hull armor compared to the Wehrmacht's Panzer IV. It is equal in firepower and has more accuracy, to other medium tanks.
The Sherman is featured in the World War II mod for Battlefield 1942. It is the standard tank of the USMC forces. It is statistically identical to the Chi-Ha, and remains almost unchanged from its Battlefield 1942 version.
The Sherman is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1943. It spawns regularly at certain USMC controlled flags. It has a coaxial machine gun for the driver's anti-infantry needs and a main cannon for heavier targets such as other tanks or static defenses. The projectile of the main cannon has a noticeable arc in its trajectory, limiting its long range capabilities. Another soldier can make use of a turret-mounted M1919 Browning, providing some extra anti-infantry power.
The Sherman (along with the Chi-Ha) is able to knock down trees simply by driving into them. It is the direct equivalent to the IJN Type 97 Chi-Ha. People are ride on the back by jumping onto it from an elevated position. This is very glitchy and complicated, but can be effective.
