Anlushac11;4438553 First 76mm Shermans arrived in Sept 1944, not counting field modified models like Jumbos upgraded to 76mm.

They arrived in numbers...1/2 of all Shermans at the end of 1944 were 76mm of various kinds.

The point was 76mm E8 Shermans were not available for Normandie.

The first 76mm Shermans were used in Operation Goodwood in August 1944.

Yeah, just throw some M5s in with those M-24s and I'll be happy as when I see my first Sherman DD!
