I believe this is incorrect. It was actually the Egyptian army that used M4 Shermans up-gunned with the AMX-13 turret. The picture you've shown is of one captured by Israel during the Suez Crisis.

If you look next to it you will see a Panzer IV painted black.

Ok here's the joke:

Will it attack or will it flee?

Yep, the Syrians used Pz4's (into the 60ies?).

Yep, look at the half-moon on green background on it's side.


The Israelis used 105 mm gunned Shermans.


Both would be nice additions!

They were used in the 6 Days War in '67.

Whats the point in using a black tank in the desert.

And for the Frankensherman:  Combined bad hull armor from american and bad turret armor from france, great idea!
