The Paul Heiser Models M4A1 late production hull with early 76mm gun turret T-23.
Sherman tanks were made by many different companies in real life, that's why there are so many different versions.
Some companies could do large metal castings and so they made cast hull Shermans.
The larger turret was made for the longer recoil and projectile size of the 76mm gun.
The original Sherman turret had only one hatch for the commander. Later this round hatch for the loader was installed. It allowed the crew to escape faster in the event the tank caught fire. These Paul Heiser Models are going to be great. They will be sold by Fidelis Models.
