Contains one FL10 Sherman turret and one M4 Sherman tank
Egypt modified several of its ex-British M4A4 tanks with the diesel engine of the M4A2 tank and the turret from a modern AMX-13 to create the M4/FL-10. This greatly increased the firepower
of the M4, gun, but did little to improve mobility.
The Palestinian 7th Infantry Division in the Gaza Strip had a battalion of Sherman tanks instead of the more common T-34/85 tanks. Some of their Sherman tanks were modified to carry the FL10 turret of the AMX-13 light tank, significantly increasing their firepower. While some tanks in the Gaza Strip launched mobile counterattacks against the attacking Israeli forces, those at Abu Ageila fought from their defensive positions without attempting to manoeuvre. This gave them considerable protection against the bigger guns of the Israelis, although it did disperse their effort to a degree.
