The Continental R-975 C1 radial engine was originally fitted on M4 and M4A1 tanks. The C4 was a slighly different version, having cylinders with a different shape.
Later in the 50s, the French Army did rebuild a batch of M4A4s, removing the original Chrysler Multibank engines and replacing them with Continental R-975 C1s. These tanks were named M4A4T (T stands for Transformed).
