An interesting what-if/April Fool's model of the Tracked Vehicle Land Speed Record Holder based on a Sherman tank.  The Sher-Moon built by Mark Neville

*chuckle* I can just see one of those, equipped with road tracks, tearing up the major streets around Moon's facility in Santa Fe Springs, CA.  That stretch of Norwalk Blvd. would never be the same.

According to the bottom of this link's entry, Yugoslavia tried arming the M4 Sherman with a modified 122mm field gun.
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Is that a 76mm muzzle brake?

It sure looks like it. That looks to be a post war mod,where they mounted a 76 mm in a standard 75 mm turret.

No, those have far longer barrels and rarely had muzzle brakes.

It looks like the wrong shaped muzzle brake, anyway.  Looks circular instead of ovoid, to me.  I suspect someone found a Sherman without a gun and welded a spare tube they found somewhere with a muzzle brake on it, onto the mantlet.

Oh, I agree completely, rickshaw.  That was my thought, as well.  Maybe an M1A2 76mm cut down?  The 37mm on the Stuart appears fake, too.  Regardless, it gives the Sherman an unusual profile.

Cheers,

Logan

The more I read about the M4A6,the more I like it. It had a Caterpillar designed multi fuel engine. It was mounted onto a composite M4A4 hull,which was simply a longer hull version of the M4 composite. When I get home,I am going to see how well a Comet turret fits onto a Sherman hull.
