About the M51 Super Sherman:
The M51 tank was created in the 1960s when 180 M4A1 Sherman hulls received turrets mounting French 105mm CN 105 F1 guns. These guns had their length shortened from 56 down to 44 calibers, and a muzzle brake was fitted. These guns, and the associated tanks themselves, were both designated M-51 by Israel. All of these Super Shermans were powered by Cummins diesel engines and ran on HVSS suspension.
