Since is v3 and you are going to use the 105mm shermans for bombardment, three of them is enough... stick with the first list with 76mm shermans.

This list looks decent but its going to struggle against the dozens of ATG or heavy tanks that are going to dominate V4 in late War.

Andras, I'm not so sure you need to overly worry much about a static ATG based force. You have the right tools for that job so long as you don't rush in.

I do agree with SP that six 105mm Shermans might be a bit much and you may need the extra punch of the 76mm guns. I might have dropped the three 105mm Shermans for one towed 105mm battery, to get more smoke and another template, but if you do manage to get on the flanks of the heavies, you will be missing the punch of the 76mm guns when that AT bounces off and get a sad face for your brilliant maneuver.
