The M4(105) was a Sherman tank up-armed with a 105mm M4 howitzer. The were used to provide close up fire-support for which the 105mm howitzer's high expolsive shell was ideally suited. They were generally deployed as six-tank assault platoons to provide fire support and smoke for armored battalions. While they were not designed to fight other tanks, they were provisioned with a limited number of High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) rounds for emergency use. More than 1500 M4(105)s were built in 1944-45 and were based on late model M4 and M4A3 Sherman tank hulls and chassis.
