Heroes & Generals Wiki


The Sherman forms the backbone of American armor and performs well as an all-round tank. It is fitted with a gyrostabilizer making the 75mm cannon reasonably accurate while the tank is driving.

  • The Sherman M4A1's optic sight is less powerful than the rest of the American tanks. Sniping tanks from long distances may be a challenge, but it is useful for tracking & picking off soft targets close to you.
  • Your main gun is very powerful but sometimes may have difficulty penetrating enemy tanks. Be sure to aim for weakspots whenever possible, APCBC rounds are good to have on hand.
  • If you see a T34-85 or a Panther, Try to avoid them and flank.
  • Your armor is enough to bounce some shots, be sure to angle your tank.
  • The M4A1, unlike the M4A3E8, lacks a good engine. you are slow, especially when going up-hill.
