Every country claims their tank is 'the best in the world'. Russia with their T-90, the US with their M1 Abrams, the British with the Challenger II, French with the Leclerc, etc. It all depends on where you live.

Depends on period and combat theater.
During the D-Day, 76mm gun Shermans were indeed minority ( 1 tank in every platoon ); which changed after the Battle of the Bulge, where 75mm gun Shermans were consequently replaced. During the campaign in Germany ( March-May 1945 ), the staple firepower of US Army tank units were M4A1/76, M4A3/76 and M4A3E8/76, supported by tank destroyers with 76mm guns ( M10 & M18 ) or 90mm guns ( M36 ) and newly introduced M26 Pershing tanks, which performed fine against Panthers and Tigers.
Don't you love it when people start comparing the M4 to the Tiger as if they are in the same category? It's like comparing the Pz. IV ausf. F2 against the IS-2 and calling the IS-2 the grossly superior tank!
Ah, but that's not the standard M4 Sherman, of which there were over 50,000 made, and there were only 254 of the Jumbos made. And if I remember correctly, the Tiger I was still capable of engaging and knocking out Jumbos at ranges greater than the effective range of the standard Jumbo armament (which still had trouble penetrating Tigers even at close ranges of less than 100 yards, if indeed it could penetrate at all).
It's in WoT, so ranges are compressed a bit and there's a prototype Tiger rather than the actual one. But this proves the short 88 has a very difficult time trying to get through the front of a Jumbo. Out of all the shots fired by the proto Tiger, only 2 penetrated (IIRC) and one was by using APCR.

Jumbos were converted to the 76mm M1A1 (could penetrate 128mm average), which could deal with Tigers quite well. (It had better ballistics than the Soviet 85mm Model 1939) The Jumbo turret was 152mm all around, not including the thick mantlet. Hull armor was 139mm effective.
