M4A3 (75)W SHERMAN Brief Information:
Fisher Body was the sole manufacturer of 75mm M4A3 Shermans with large hatches and wet stowage. It produced 3071 M4A3(75)W’s from February 1944 to March 1945.

Production Order T-9724 : 1711 M4A3(75)W with VVSS manufactured: Serial Number 48615 / USA 3081212 through S/N 50325 / USA 3082922
Production Order T-11315/1 : approx. 709 M4A3(75)W with VVSS and 113 with HVSS manufactured: Serial Number 62038 / USA 30115060 through S/N 62859 / USA 30115881

While the Sherman’s 75mm main gun may have been “state of the art” in 1941 and 1942, it was outmoded as an anti-tank weapon by 1943. Unfortunately, the military bureaucracy became mired in controversy over the proper role of tanks, and ultimately failed to develop an effective replacement when it designed the 76mm gun and its original ammunition. In any case, most of the US Army heads involved with the Tank Program wanted to discontinue production of 75mm Shermans at the end of 1943. However, this was a decision made by committee, and some members hedged somewhat by noting “that the complete elimination of the 75m/m gun from the Medium Tank M4 Series would cause considerable difficulty should any portion of the Medium Tanks M4 be required in the future to be equipped with this same gun due to the change-over of the facilities involved.” It was noted that the British & US Marines still had requirements for the 75mm Sherman in 1944 and on. They considered the 75mm’s High Explosive round to be markedly superior to that of the 76mm gun. Moreover, the British requested more 75mm Shermans with M34A1 gun mounts and Oil Gear Traverse Mechanisms, which they needed for their ongoing Firefly conversion program. In the event, the 75mm Sherman, in the form of the M4A3(75)W continued in production until March, 1945. 
Perhaps the most famous surviving Sherman in the world is Serial Number 48935, USA 3081532 on display in McAuliffe Square in Bastogne, Belgium. It was a battlefield recovery, enshrined on the Square in 1948. Not much was known of the tank’s history, until the late 1990s, when some excellent research by local historians revealed that it served with B Company of the 41st Tank Battalion, 11th Armored Division and was nicknamed “Barracuda.” It was destroyed on December 30, 1944 in a meadow near Renuamont.  See photos in photo gallery on this product page of the left side photo which was taken in June, 1954, while the right is recent, & reflects the growth of Bastogne as a WWII tourist destination.
