Markings of US Army Shermans and Variants

The following table lists all markings available for building US Army Shermans (and its variants) in World War II. A separate page has been set up for Korean War Shermans.

This table shows markings from all kits and aftermarket decal sets. Some of these may be out of production or print. The Parent Unit/Unit/Sub-Unit split has been somewhat arbitrary, in that not all references give complete, hierarchical unit information. For the most part I tried to be consistent with my splits amongst all the national markings tables, but there may be some unavoidable inconsistencies due to my lack of reference material. In cases where it was possible, I have corrected or expounded upon the unit information that was included with the source of the markings, if warranted. If any viewer finds errors in these tables, please let me know: doug(at)172shermans(dot)com.
