The M4A3E8, also known as the "Sherman", was named after Sherman, the General of the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was deployed to US military forces in 1942 and operated as the main force of the US Army during World War II.
Its performance was somewhat subpar compared to those of German and former Soviet tanks. But thanks to its excellent reliability, it became the most manufactured tank during World War II.
The South Korean Army introduced the M4A3E8 from the United States to its marines and the army during the Korean War. Since then, a total of 300 M4A3E8 tanks have been operated in South Korea. However, in the early 1970s, M-47 tanks were gradually introduced into the country.
With that, the M4A3E8 retired from the front line.
