M4A3 76mm Sherman on assault raft on the Rhine
Here we see a M4A3(76) Sherman medium tank on an assualt raft about to cross the Rhine. The difference between tanks and tank destroyers seems to have caused some confusion during the war, and the original caption with this photo described it as a tank destroyer. The Sherman hull is clearly visible, and the M36B1 was based on that hull, but this can be identified as a Sherman by the open hatch on the turret roof. The M36B1 had an open topped turret, with no hatches.
