The M26 Pershing was America's first sucessful mass-produced heavy tank. The Pershing was developed to fight heavy tanks, and was itself initially classified as heavy. After World War II it was re-classified as medium. A few saw combat in the closing phase of World War II. It had a powerful cannon and thick armor, proving itself superior to the Tiger and Panther tanks it fought in battle. It was the basis for many later tanks, including the M46 and M48 tanks. The modern M60 also traces it's roots down to the Pershing. #90mm_M3 #M26 #M46 #M47 #M48 #M60 #Pershing #tank #thenoob1234 #wwii
