    Believe me, I am grateful for more choices in armor but for a while there it was nothing but Tigers and a few Shermans/Pershings. Now at least we have Russian armor and maybe a few Lend-Lease...

    I'll second what Fury25 said, unless there's a better, detailed thread already showing the process (no reason to rehash). If one wants a cast-hull Sherman, this is about the only game in town...

    Great fun! If any tank (HL or 1/1) was worthy of being called a hot rod, it would be the M-41. Any other tank at these speeds would look preposterous.
