Post Sherman Tank Engines
Ever wondered what powered the 30Ton WW2 Sherman tank, One was a 9 cyl Wright Whirlwind radial engine Making 400Hp @ 2400rpm

Another was a Chrysler 30 cyl 21 Ltr multibank engine that made 470Hp @ 2700rpm.

And the best one i reckon, Was a Ford all alloy GAA Engine. Its 1100ci quad cam 32valve V8 Powerplant would make 500Hp @2600rpm.

The serman tanks would have a 200L fuel cell inside them, That would only give a range of only 160kms per tank.

The sherman tank was regarded as the best tank in WW2 because there were so many of them compared to the german panzers and tiger tanks
