Default ISRAEL'S NEWEST SHERMAN

A new "whatif" tank....A new Sherman based on what may have happened if Israel used all of it's resouces available;
Pz IV captured from Syria, T-34/84 captured from Egypt, surplus Sherman from France, M-48A3 parts from USA, salvage Pershing and Bulldog parts from Italy and Spain.

Tank has a crew of 4. Powered by Merlin-Rolls Royce V-12 diesel = 60 mph, Allison CD transmission which makes this the world's only Sherman capable of a pivot, ultra HV 90mm gun, 25mm chain gun in TC cupola, 30mm gatling in bow, driver controlled.

Tank is named ; Bet Samech = or Bravo Sierra, or BS

Just made an improvement to the suspension which looks better. Added the return rollers to the Pershing suspension and assigned an IDF crew.

The modified tank is called Bet Samech Dagem shtayim = BS model 2.

I like it! It certainly has lots of chutzpah, but where are your well-known IDF shiksa squad that we all have come to love?

My friendly PLA interrogator wants to know!
