This model assembly kit depicts the Korean War variant of the M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Sherman. This kit variant includes new parts!

The Sherman – reliable and available in huge numbers - was a game changer for the Allies in WWII, and the Easy Eight a prevalent variant most notable for its horizontal volute spring suspension (HVSS) and smooth ride. The Easy Eight's career did not end with WWII, however, as a number were refurbished and thrown back into action by a largely demobilized U.S. Army in the Korean War from 1950. They faced off against T34/85s operated by the Korean People's Army with great success and were later often used in a supporting fire role.
