  • Over 50,000 Shermans were made during World War II, with numerous countries using them since then.[2] The last country to use Shermans was Paraguay, which retired them in 2018.[3]
  • Due to the Sherman being designed for average-sized American men during World War II, Japanese tankers who operated the vehicles after the war found them to be very roomy and comfortable but a bit hard to operate.[citation needed]
