How many tanks in Pattons fourth armor division?

The US eventually created sixteen armored divisions. Only two, the Second and Third, retained the prewar levels of equipment and were considered "heavy" armored divisions. All the others, including the 4th AD, were "light" and had less tanks. The number of tanks was further reduced in the autumn of 1944 as M4 Sherman medium tank losses in Europe outstripped the army's ability to replace them.When the 4th AD entered combat in Europe it was operating under the Table of Organization and Equipment of September 15, 1943. This included a Division Headquarters and Headquarters (H&H) Company, two Combat Command Headquarters (CCA and CCB), a Reserve Combat Command Headquarters (CCR), three tank battalions (of three medium and one light tank companies), three armored infantry battalions, three eighteen-gun artillery battalions, a cavalry reconnaissance squadron (battalion), an engineer battalion, and division services. The division was commanded by a major general, the combat commands by a brigadier general (who was also assistant division commander) and two colonels. The division included 77 light tanks, 168 medium tanks, 18 M4 105mm assault guns, 54 M7 105mm SP artillery pieces, 54 M8 armored cars, 450 halftracks, 1,031 motor vehicles, and 8 light observation aircraft. Total personnel strength was 10,754.After the TO & E was changed in the autumn of 1944 each tank battalion had twelve less medium tanks, so after that time the division would have had 132 medium tanks, at full strength.
