    Too many people are unfortunately treating this as a best tank thread imho.
    I am not american and I see the M4 as mor signifcant than the T34. Every aliied country used it and it fought in every theater.

      Can't think of any other criteria in which it excels, tbh.

(English crew members had better get ready for a tough fight against the combined French and Spanish fleets because that's what England expects! However, Scotland, Wales and Ireland appear to expect nothing so the Scottish, Welsh and Irish crew members can relax below decks if they like!)

        Well I was thinking about voting for the Tiger at first but given the discussion, I think I'll have to go with the Churchill.

          That the M4 was generally a better tank than the T-34 is probably not in question most of the time. The M4 fought in every theatre, but the most important land theatre was the Eastern Front. It was on this front, the German army was destroyed.

          The most significant and influential tank on that front is the T-34, without question. It was extremely efficient, cheap as chips, and the only design I know of that an enemy thought of copying directly.

            Excellent point. Significance and influence do not equal best. MacArthur was a significant and influential US general. He was not their best.
