Sherman Calliope is an American medium tank fitted with a multiple rocket launcher.

DescriptionEdit

The Sherman Calliope in Battlegroup42 is a M4A3 Sherman with sixty rocket launch tubes mounted over the gun turret, giving the tank the ability to fire a powerful barrage of rockets while retaining its role as a medium tank.

The rockets are controlled by the crewman in the second position, which can be elevated or depressed but have extremely limited traverse range. Therefore coordination with the driver is important to bring out the vehicle's full potential.
