Sherman Grizzly 'Wilton' M4A1

Canadian licence built American M4A1 "Sherman" tanks were named "Grizzly". The main difference between the "Sherman" and "Grizzly" tanks were the use of CDP tracks and an idler with 13 teeth instead of 17 teeth. From September to December of 1943, Montreal Locomotive Works produced 188 "Grizzly" tanks. Part of them equipped Canadian Forces in Europe, while the rest was used for training purposes. This tank has a 17-tooth sprocket. Not sure why.

The CDP (Canadian Dry Pin) track was used with Canadian-made Grizzly tanks and Sexton II SP guns; the individual CDP track sections are joined by a single connecting pin which is threaded through the adjoining track sections. All other track types used on Sherman tanks (and other vehicles using the same suspension system) use tracks with connecting pins at both ends of the individual track section; the pins of the adjoining track sections are linked together with external connectors. As a result, the single connecting pin CDP track requires a 17-tooth drive sprocket; the external connector of the other types requires a 13-tooth drive sprocket.
