Sherman M4 Oregon

Battle tanks

The Sherman M4 was designed by the Americans to be simple, effective, fast, and easy to manufacture.

The Tank Rent Sherman M4 tank Oregon dates from April 1943 and is the only known example in a French collection. There are less than a dozen surviving M4s in working order in the world.


The first Sherman M4 tanks were designed in 1942 to replace the Grant M3 medium tank, which had become obsolete. With total production reaching 6,748, it was supplied to the Americans, the French, the British and the Canadians. Although highly adaptable, it had low firepower and relatively light armour. It was less powerful than its German adversaries and its armour less effective. The first version of this tank had a structure made of a casting. This model, produced in 1943, is the one owned by Tank Rent. For cost reasons, the Sherman M4 A1 variant had a welded-sheet hull.

All models combined, more than 49,000 Sherman tanks were produced by the factories.

Our vehicle

Restored with care, in its strict original configuration. New engine, tracks and wheels. Some internal items are yet to be completed. This is a very rare version, with very few remaining examples in the world.  It is in perfect working order, with its contemporary accessories and equipment, and regularly takes part in commemorations.

This Sherman M4 medium tank has all its documents: prefectural possession permit order, certificate of neutralisation (disarming).
