Fears of having to break through the German Siegfried Line led to the development of the M4A3E2 ‘Jumbo’ assault tank. With no heavy tanks available, another M4 Sherman variant was rushed into production in early 1944. The late M4 chassis was used with extra armour added all around. Its sheer bulk led to the nickname: ‘Jumbo’. The Jumbo had a larger turret with a massive 7-inch/180mm thick mantlet.

Often the Sherman Jumbos would lead the way, taking a position at the head of the advance so they could take any ambushing shots against their thicker armour.
