Calliope is a United States Artillery unit.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The ubiquitous M4 Sherman medium tank evolved from the M3 Lee medium tank pressed into service as a stop-gap model in 1941. The M4 entered service in late 1942, outperforming its older sibling in every aspect, the Sherman went on to become one of the most widely produced armored fighting vehicles of World War II. It was well armored, relatively fast, and cheap to produce, becoming the backbone of Allied armored divisions on the Western Front.

The Calliope designation identifies a Sherman with a 60 tube T34 multiple launcher system utilizing the M8 rocket. The rocket itself was developed in the 1940s at Picatinny Arsenal and entered service in 1943. The M8 was designated as a barrage rocket due to its low accuracy, and thus fired in large volleys from MLRS, becoming the first of Allied grid erasers.
