The Sherman is a good all around tank it probably as cost efficient as PzIV.
The 76 Sherman will beat the PzIV.
If you USF have a tank that can engage the Panther (which is designed to counter tanks) 1vs1 and win then Ostheer would simply be lose badly to USF.
USF already have better infantry, about the same Support weapons, better light vehicles about the same medium tanks and more cost efficient TDs, giving them a premium medium tank able to 1vs1 Panther would simply make them beat Ostheer at all stages of the game.
First: you still ignore the fact that usf doesnt need another tank destroyer. 76mm will beat p4, sure but jackson will do it too and they both have terrible anti infantry capabilities so whats the point in turning sherman into tank destroyer? Jackson is good at its role and if you want another TD you have m10 too.
Second: i didnt say engage panther 1v1 and win every time. Currently only pershing can engage panther 1v1 and it mostly loses but its good enough to have tank that doesnt have to run when seeing panther rolling in. Every other piece of armor that usf has stand 0 chance against panther and thats why i want some other more advanced piece of armor to be able to engage it with some chance to win 1v1 or at least deal some dmg without being absolutely destroyed.
Third: you act like im preparing another usf rework and giving them superior late game all around. Each of these tanks would be only in ONE doctrine that would lock usf player from other tools like: heavy tank, rocket artillery or elite infantry. Dont worry im not trying to create another ostheer or okw that has all of this NONDOCTRINALLY.
