Armor X-Ray - The M4A4 Tank

This cutaway line drawing of an M4A4 tank shows the many internal and external components that make up the vehicle. The vertically stored 75mm main-gun rounds along the turret ring disappeared from later production units, as they proved very vulnerable in combat when a projectile penetrated the tank.
