It is a good thing to because that is that rate that we were losing tanks to Germany, I think that is it, all I know is that the Sherman was a terrible tank that was only good for A.) Mass Production and B.) Crossing open plains at a fast rate. It was not good for A.) Fighting other tanks or B.) Protecting the crew from a German AP round. They were death boxes. They could clear a German machine gun nest quite well but not much more.
