Alternate Differences, M4A3 Sherman vs Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf. H
Everyone knows about World War 2, a war so devastating that over 60 million lives lost as the result. The war witnessed the use of armored vehicles which are used for penetrating enemy lines in land combat. Now I will tell you about two tanks that were commonly used and seen during the World War 2. First tank is M4A3 Sherman, formally called Medium Tank, M4, was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II. Thousands were also distributed to the Allies, including the British Commonwealth and the Soviet Union, via lend-lease. Its main weapon is L/40 75mm M3 Gun, which firing the usual M61 round could penetrate 89 mm of unsloped rolled homogeneous armor at 100m and 70 mm at 1000m. The secondary armaments are a coaxial .50 caliber Browning M2HB machine gun which can fire 300 rounds per minute (rpm) and a .30 caliber Browning M1919A4 machine guns which can fire up to 450 rpm. The Sherman has a weakness; its armor thickness is overpowered by later German’s tank and anti-tank gun.  The steel frontal body armor of the M4 ranged from 64–76 mm (2.52–2.99 inches). The side and the rear sported 38 mm armor. Now is the function. The M4 was envisioned to primarily fill the role of a cruiser tank, although the US Army did not use that doctrinal term. Also, the M4 was primarily intended as an infantry support tank, due to its mobility and small-sized body. Shermans have their own specification, but now I will tell you about the differences with another tank. The second tank is Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf. H (abbreviated as Pz.Kpfw. IV, and Ausf is Ausfuhrung, model in Germanic language) commonly known as the Panzer IV was a medium tank developed in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and used extensively during the Second World War. Being reliable, it saw service in all combat theaters involving Germany and has the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in continuous production throughout the war, with over 8,800 produced between 1936 and 1945. Its main armament is 7.5 cm KwK 40 (7.5 cm Kampfwagenkanone 40), a German 7.5 cm Second World War era vehicle mounted gun, used as the primary anti-tank weapon of the German medium tanks. The KwK 40 used shell 75×495 mm which could penetrate a Sherman's armor up to a range of 1,370 – 1,500 meters. The secondary armaments are two 7.92 mm Maschinengewehr (Machine Gun) 42 Panzerlauf which can fire up to 1200 rpm, more devastating for infantry than the American machine guns. The armor boast on the frontal side, at exact 80-millimetre (3.15 inches) plate welded to the front armor. Panzer IV Ausf. H productions fitted with 30 mm (1.18 inches) thick rear and side armor. To simplify production, the vision ports on either side of the turret and on the right turret front were removed, while a rack for two spare road wheels was installed on the track guard on the left side of the hull. For function, after designed as an infantry-support tank, the PzKpfw IV soon assumed as the tank-fighting role of its increasingly obsolete cousins tanks by increasing the Panzer IV's armor protection or upgrading its weapons, body armor thickness, and the modules. In brief, both tanks are deadly for infantry and for each other although they have many dissimilitaries in them.
