New release: the M-26 Pershing
Astral Technologies is proud to announce the release of the M-26 Pershing.
The Heavy Tank M26 Pershing was a medium-weight American tank. The M26 Pershing was used during the Second World War and the Korean War. The tank is named after General John Pershing who led the US forces during the First World War.
Comparison with German tanks
In the last months of the war, the German Tiger I and Panther tanks were the main opponents of the T26E3 or the M26 Pershing. According to R. P. Hunnicutt (Historian), the Panther was superior in terms of mobility and the three tanks were about as good in terms of armor. Hunnicutt mentions the low power / weight ratio of the M26 Pershing, but attaches greater importance to the lower overall weight and the narrower profile of the tank. This was experienced as a major advantage when crossing bridges. The crew consisted of five people in all cases.
