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 Royal Tank is a vehicle featured in Battlefield Heroes for the Royal Army and is the counterpart to the National Tank. The tanks main gun can cause heavy damage to any vehicle, and can seriously injure any dismounted infantryman.
It is able to hold two players, a driver and a passenger. The driver maneuvers the tank and controls the tank's main gun. The passenger can use any of the tank's secondary weapons and use most of its abilities. The passenger can also crouch to avoid being shot by enemies.
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.
The Sherman is a vehicle featured in Battlefield V singleplayer. It first appeared in the Battlefield V - Official Single Player Trailer, but was not on the list of confirmed vehicles available at launch..
It appears as both an active vehicle during My Country Calling in the 1941 and 1944 parts, with the 1941 being enemy units and 1944 supporting British troops. Additionally, it is an ambient map object wreck in Tirailleur.
There are three variants of the Sherman seen in the campaign:
- Short-barrel 75mm: Most common version seen in-game.
- long-barrel 76mm versions: rarer version, with a longer gun and sandbags on the front and sides of the armor. Requires an additional shot to kill.
- T34 Calliope: rocket artillery variant, can launch rocket attacks at long range and out of sight.
