     The M4 Sherman and the T-34, both legends of World War 2 and mighty warriors in blitz. Both with different play styles and are both fun to play. The M4 Sherman with its accurate 75mm M1A1 can be secondary line support or be in the thick of battle. On the other hand, the T-34 with its fast firing gun out DPMs its enemies on the front line in the thick of the action. The M4 and the T-34 both have excellent mobility paired with good guns for their respective vehicles. Do you need reliable armor that can produce richochets when you need it most, with great maneuverability, and a crazy amount of fire? Choose the T-34. Do you need an accurate gun than can snipe well while having fairly balanced characteristics in all categories? Choose the M4. In my opinion, the Sherman is slightly better, not saying that I don't love the T-34, the T-34 is a close contender, but honestly, the M4's accurate gun is what I love about it, with good traverse, a fairly good gun mantlet, and good mobility, the Sherman is the best and my favorite, but give me your 2 cents in the comments and give me good reasons why you think the other tank is better, and give me feedback on the article, thank you!

the base accuracy is bad, but it has good gun dispersion when moving.

You know why it has good gun dispersion, it was one of the first tanks with gun stabilization to fire on the move more accurately in real life.

I love em both but in my opinion the M4 is superior.  The decent turret armor, gun depression, gun handling, and decent 76mm really let it shine when ridge fighting.


Good players take RNG and MM into account when they make decisions in game.  They take what the game gives them and more often then not win in the end.  Bad players on the other hand come to the forum and whine because they are unable to adjust their playstyle to deal with the hand they have been dealt.  Don't be a bad player.

It’s a tough one for sure. I have a ridiculous WR in the T-34, thing is great. M4? Not so much, but it’s fun and still good.

 

 My opinion:

 

T-34: Better for carries and just generally a better all-round tank. With the 57mm it has reasonable accuracy, great RoF and great Damage output. The armor, while not extremely good, is trolling and allows you to sidescrape well. It’s fast and agile, allowing you to move around the field at will. Alpha on the 57 is too low to trade though, and the 76mm option is kinda crap. 

 

M4: Very good in certain situations. Hulldown it’s nearly unstoppable top-tier with great turret armor, big mantlet, and good gun depression. The 105mm howitzer can be loads of fun when you have lower tiered enemies to blow away, and allows for snapshot, unanimes damage with HE on higher tier enemies. The 76mm is dependable, accurate and with solid damage output. The M4 is just kinda slow, a big target, and lacks armor outside the turret front.

 

T-34 is a better tank overall.

I thank you for your output and a good argument, but I still love my Sherman, and it is my second best tank of all my tanks
