Model M-4 Sherman tanks awaiting shipment at Port Richmond, PA. Despite having less firepower and protective armor as compared to vastly superior German tanks, the Sherman proved a formidable opponent through its shear numbers with more than 50,000 being manufactured over the course of W.W. II. Pictured with a short-barreled cannon, the Sherman also served in Korea with a much longer barrel. Unmarked, these tanks could have been either destined for allies under the “Lend Lease” Program or lettered for the U.S. once reaching foreign port. Does anyone know if perhaps these tanks could have been manufactured at the Birdsboro Steel & Foundry? Photo taken most likely in the late 30’s or early 40’s?
