Best Answer

The M4 Sherman Tank's top speed was around 28 mph which wasn't as fast as the Soviet T34 tank at 36 mph top speed. Its main superiority over all other tanks during the Second World War was its sheer strength in numbers. Though it could only destroy a German Panther or Tiger tank within 90 yards at the rear, the great manueverability and numbers could take one out with minimal casualties, being aided by the fact that the Tiger tank's barrel rotation speed was about 2 minutes for a full 360 degree turn.
