Description

The ␗Medium Tank M4A1 (75) W Sherman is a rank III Chinese medium tank with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.91 "Night Vision".

General info

Survivability and armour

The armour layout of the M4A1 (75) W is identical to that of M4A1 (76) W, turret- and hull-wise. Taking out a M4A1 (75) W is not a difficult task to do for most cannons it will face. It can take a few hits from Pz IIIs that are equipped with KwK39 (50 mm), Shermans equipped with M3 (75 mm) and T-34 and KV-1's equipped with the L-11 (76 mm) that will have a difficulty for reliable penetration on the M4A1 (75) W's armour. Meanwhile most guns above 3.7 battle rating will penetrate the armour with ease. However, even up-gunned tanks can have a hard time penetrating it with the sloped armour the M4A1 models are shaped with.

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forwards and backwards.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Trolly sloped armour
  • Effective APCBC shell
  • Vertical stabiliser
  • Fast turret traverse
  • Fast reload
  • Mobile when acceleration has enough speed
  • HMG as Anti-Air defence
  • Wet ammo stowage reduces chance of being ammo-racked

Cons:

  • Narrow tracks give it inadequate grip on off-road terrain
  • Trap shot MG in hull
  • 38 mm side that even rank I vehicles can penetrate
  • High profile compared to other medium tanks it faces
  • Armour not strong against tanks like Pz.IV G or T-34-57

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
