The U.S M4A3E2 Assault Tank, often referred to as the Jumbo, was a modified M4A3 given much thicker armour to help it confront the German large-caliber tank guns & anti-tank guns. At the time the U.S. M26 Preshing was still not ready for mass production & the standard Sherman design was recognised as unsatisfactory in confronting newer German tanks. The Jumbo was seen as the answer to this problem & were often deployed as the vanguard in dangerous missions.

The vertical thickness of its front hull armour was 101mm & at the same time, the front hull armour had a large inclination angle, making its front protection better than the German Tiger I tank. The armour of its mantlet was as thick as 178mm, which was the same level as the German King Tiger. Some M4A3E2 tanks were refitted with a 76mm gun, greatly increasing their anti-armour capability.
