The British invented the Duplex Drive system for tanks being used in amphibious operations and gave their design to their Americans in early 1944. The US tank of choice was the M4A1 of which 100 were the later Big Hatch type. The Firestone company produced the conversion kits. 350 were converted and differed from the British pattern by having additional struts and a raised splash curtain on the rear of the apron. They later decided that 350 vehicles were more than needed for D-Day and transferred 80 (a mix  of both M4A1 types) to the British.

36 American M4A1 DDs were used in Operation Dragoon, the landings in Southern France with 16 swimming ashore and the balance landing directly on the beach from LCTs.

Their final amphibious operation was the Rhine crossing but due to shortages of M4A1s, the British supplied the Americans with some of their M4A2 & M4A4 DDs. A total of 28 of this mixed bag were used in the crossing by the Americans.
