“These heavily-armored units will attack defensive buildings, distracting them at close range while your other troops do the damage.”

M4 Sherman Medium Tank is a level 7 standard Heavy Cavalry unit unlocked in Global Age. Its predecessor is Tank and can be upgraded to Battle Tank. It is researched in level 9 Armory.

General Information[edit source]

  • Medium Tank is the armored front runners among all troops. Its default behavior is to seek and destroy defenses. After all the defences are gone it will behave like a heavy infantry troop. With a large amount of hitpoints, it can endure more than any other troop of its age, as well as dealing a lot of damage before falling. However, its disadvantages are that it has low damage and can be killed easily by Ballista Towers, Cannon Towers or Anti-Tank Guns.

Historical Description[edit | edit source]

The M4 Sherman was the second-most-produced tank during WWII, with about 40,000 units being created by the end of the war. Although it was easy to maintain, it was overpowered by German armor such as the Panzer IV and the Tiger I, which had longer range and more penetrating power. Sometimes, powerful grenade punctured a small hole in the armour.

Attacking Strategies[edit source]

  • Medium Tank has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups.
  • Medium Tank is weak against many defenses grouped together.
  • When pushing for trophies, you would need to destroy the Town Center or City Center. In many bases, the town center would be in the center of the base. First, train up an army of Medium Tank and a Wall Breacher. When attacking, deploy your Wall Breacher and wait till it destroys the necessary walls. Then, deploy all your Medium Tank units in the areas which the City Center is more close to. If there are a few defenses blocking the way, destroy them. Then rally your units to destroy the Town Center or City Center.
  • Medium Tank would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks it, the Medium Tank will attack back until the defensive troop is killed; thus making it distracted. Try to use and deploy Ranged Infantry or Heavy Infantry after deploying the units to eliminate the defensive troops.

Defensive Strategies[edit source]

  • Medium Tank is a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them.
  • Medium Tank units are spawned by Stable or Tank Depot. With their high health, they are good to slow down the enemies advance.
  • The Reinforcements technology in the Library spawns Main the units in the forest and they attack troops of the attacker.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The M4 Sherman Medium Tank is the second level of Heavy Cavalry that is used by North European, Mediterranean, and Asian nations.
