Post-war Shermans Released! by Pendraken Miniatures

We've been working on revamping all of our Shermans recently, so in advance of the WWII ones being replaced, we've got these handy post-war variants all ready for purchase.

The M50 Shermans were developed in the early 1950's, after the Israeli army had bought a load of French AMX-13 tanks, but decided to mount it's 75mm gun onto Sherman hulls/turrets instead.  The first 50 of these were mounted on the M4A4 hull, before mobility and mechanical issues resulted in them switching over to the M4A3 hulls for the rest.  Then in the 1960's, they decided to mount a 105mm gun onto 180 M4A1 hulls, creating the 'Super' Sherman M51 (also known as Isherman).

And finally in this release, we've got the Egyptian Sherman as well, which was bought and similarly upgraded using the French AMX-13 turret.
