Description[]

The A3E8, nicknamed ‘Easy Eight’ by the crew, is an up-gunned and up-armored experimental version of the successful Sherman tank. The long barrel 76mm cannon is very effective even against heavy tanks.

Tips

  • The Easy 8 Sherman is powerful enough to destroy the Panzer III and the Panzer IV Ausf. H with ease, but this does not mean you are invincible.; the Panzer III can still kill you from the side and rear if you are not careful enough. The M4A3E8 can kill Panzer IV Ausf. H and lower easily as the Panzer's armor will not bounce shots so exploit this to your advantage. Beware of the Panther, it's front plate can be challenging to penetrate, whilst it can eliminate you with ease.
  • This version has an outside turret mounted M1919 Machine gun (M1919A4), as well as an Inside mounted MG. Use the turret if Enemies swarm the Sherman, as all tanks are vulnerable to AT Infantry!
  • This Variant has access to APCR rounds as well as AP shots-Use AP if you can't cope with the cost as the Easy 8 Shermans Repair and resupply may actually leave you broke.
  • When facing a Panther head on, aim for the lower glacis as you can easily penetrate it there.
