Immerse yourself in the rich history of armored warfare with the legendary M4A3E8, affectionately known as the 'Easy Eight.' Originally designated as the M4A3(76)W HVSS, the tank earned its famous moniker from the brave U.S. soldiers who fought alongside it. Boasting a host of improvements over earlier M4 Sherman designs, the Easy Eight proved itself to be a formidable medium tank on the battlefield.

With the introduction of the Horizontal Volute Suspension System (HVSS) and wider tracks, the Easy Eight exhibited enhanced ground performance, granting it superior mobility. Its welded hull provided improved protection compared to its cast predecessors. Equipped with the 76mm M1A2 main gun, the Easy Eight stood on par with the German 75mm guns, making it a formidable opponent to Axis medium tanks.

The Easy Eights made their debut in December 1944, just in time to see action during the pivotal Battle of the Bulge. While its potent main gun posed a significant threat to Axis forces, targeting the rear armor of heavier German vehicles proved crucial for success.

During the Second World War, over 2,500 Easy Eights rolled off the production line, showcasing its immense popularity and effectiveness. Its success was so profound that it continued to serve in conflicts beyond the war, including the Korean War and even the Vietnam conflict.

This extraordinary set includes a meticulously crafted plastic 'Easy Eight' medium tank, accompanied by a Bolt Action stat card, Bolt Action Order Dice, an assembly guide, a full-color waterslide decal sheet featuring US and Canadian vehicles, and vehicle damage markers. Experience the might and historical significance of the Easy Eight as you navigate the complex terrain of warfare.

Command your forces with the formidable Easy Eight, a testament to American engineering and resilience. Unleash its power on the tabletop, rewrite history, and honor the brave soldiers who fought alongside this iconic tank.
