It should be a Tier 4, it has nothing "improved" than the regular M4.

 

But if you love hear the commander say "ricochet" about 20 times a battle, it's the tank for you :trollface:

The only thing 'improved' by this tank, is WG's bank account :coin:

It is a typo or technical limitation.

It should read "I'm proved?"

Why didn't they do that Lorza one instead? That is at least T6 from what I can recall.

Getting two shot by an SU-100 was never so much fun!

Shouldn't that tank be M4 impoverished? Not improved..

Nice looking tank, rather lacklustre, even though on the paper it doesn't.

 

Don't know why, but seems WG holds a real hard grudge against M4s. Most of the premiums, except for the french couple and to some extent the Ram II, range from mediocre to plain bad.

Funny enough it could also bear the title "Lord of the Rings"...    That is "The Lord of the Damaged Turret Rings". Because even years before the suspicious (tinfoil hat on) increase in module damages that happened about 2020 I recall getting the turret damaged often, not only that but quite usual crew injuries too.

Yes, and if you are really into test your boundaries of your wits, you put Cobra Commander as the commander of the tank :facepalm: :teethhappy:

M4 Impotent on sale once again :)

One of the worst Sherman in the game, with tier 4 gun at tier 5, meeting tier 7 nonstop.

You can't even do BP or Grind Modifications, oh yeah what a deal.

Battle pass for Tier 5, then this tank Could be viable choice to play.

Not a bad little tank I got it in loot boxes I think.

Problem other than the pen being a bit low is the name.

M4 Improved implies it is better than the M4A1 in the game and unless you are a bit of a tank geek thats a reasonable asumption.

Take the tech tree M4a1 and stick the 75mm M3 gun on it and you have a tank with the same pen and damage as the M4 Improved but the armour is weaker in places and its slower.

Gun handling is worse as well.

Historically its an improved version of the Sherman that was in service when it was made.

 

92 pen isnt great at tier 5 and useless against some tier 6 and 7 tanks.

Played a few games in it today got a few kills so im happy not that I will play it much other than for this event.

 

Tier 4 might have been an option

I would have gone with preferential matchmaking but they don't do that any more.

They could reduce the cost of the premium ammo 2k is a lot for a tier 5 tank that often has little option but to use it.

 

Have set mine up to scout so playing it as a light medium.

Another mid tier tank that could do with some QoL upgrading, but sure, lets keep focussing on T8-10 *WG logic*
