HVSS & M4A3 sandbag armour set (single)



The M4 Sherman had 2 main types of suspension fitted during WW2, as the war went on the newer HVSS system was fitted to new tanks and rebuilt ones as it provided a much better ride and the wider tracks meant the cross country performance was enhanced.

This was fitted to most of the later 76mm and 105mm armed M4’s like the M4, M4A2 and M4A3 hulls.

This set enables you to make a late WW2 NWE US Sherman as seen in the advance into Germany, sand bag armour was used to counter the effect of panzerfaust and other hollow chgarge weapons often encountered, often they were also fitted with the HVSS tracks to make the extra weight carried easier on the suspension.

Our set just replaces the original kits track work and should fit any of the late PSC & Armourfast M4A3s.

The pictures show the tracks fitted to an Armourfast M4A3 76mm

We also stock the Armourfast M4’s.
