The M26 Pershing was developed at the end of WWII as the successor of the M4 Sherman. Weighing in at 46 tons with 127mm of armor, excellent agility and a 90mm M3 gun for its punch, the Pershing was a tank capable of standing up to the Panthers and Tiger I's. At the start of the Korean War the M26 was sent to combat the Soviet built T-34/85s. The M26 became the model for designing the M46, M48 and M60 tanks.
