In 1944, the U.S. forces which were about to enter the European theatre urgently needed an assault spearhead against the powerful Germany armored forces. The M4A3E, a special Sherman variant nick-named "Jumbo" was thus born. It received much thicker chassis and turret armor on the basis of M4A3. It could withstand the shot of large caliber German tank guns and anti-tank guns. The U.S. military placed high hopes on it and named it an "assault tank". The M4A3E2 received a lot of add-on armor on the basis of the M4A3, so the vehicle weight increased greatly. As a result, its VVSS volute springs were compressed and the suspension height was reduced compare to the common M4A3 suspension.
