    Default Sherman Vs Japanese tank

    If a sherman, lets say a M1A4 confronts a Japanese tank type 95 who would win, the Japanese tank or sherman?

    I think the Sherman would clean up as the Japanese type95 is a light tank with little armour. The Sherman has a 75mm armour the Japanese type 95 has 17mm, and the Japanese 95 has a pea shooter. The Sherman would win hands down.
