The arriving M26 Pershings were delivered simply too late to the theater for any valuable tactical use to be brought about though at least 200 were reportedly on European soil, these with the 3rd and 9th American Armored Divisions and a further 100 examples were being kept in reserve to further bolster strength in the region should they have been needed. Basically, only get this tank if you're looking for something new. Heavy object when they cry. In addition, 102mm of turret face was added behind the mantlet, giving most of the frontal turret effective protection in excess of 300mm. The view range is a bearable 380m which although not great is enough to prevent you from being shot from to many invisible tanks. The T26E1 was the prototype upon which the upgraded production version T26E3 was based on. The 3rd Armored first used the M26 to engage the enemy on 25 February near the.
The turret face of the T26E4 has very good durability to complement the tough frontal hull. Your main weak spots that people aim for are the top commander hatches and the machine gun port in the hull. The M26E1 was given the long-barreled T54 gun making use of single-piece projectiles. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. The upper part of the upper hull as well as the lower hull is around 180-200mm of effective armor, while the beak of the hull is around 245mm. .
The turret is protected by a shield, but behind you're just a smooth vanilla Pershing, a good shooter will avoid the shield, shooting just above, there is a space between the turret shield and the hull. I think I'll go back tomorrow and put some of this in, and change the font color. Tank historians, such as Richard P. The point is, you won't pull your hair out trying to get to the battle on time anymore. I absolutely love using this tank with this setup. The T26E4 is similar to the in many ways, such as shape and armament; however, the T26E4 suffers a significant decrease in speed and mobility as it uses a very strained 500 horsepower engine that makes it slow while turning, accelerating, and going uphill. The weak spot guide linked earlier will help you find out the correct amount of angling you should be doing.
It is advised that the Super Pershing attack in a group with heavies when possible and, if available, exploit terrain features using its excellent gun depression and turret armor. In February 1945, the T-26 was fielded in the European theatre, where its performance received early praise from Army Ordinance officials. It replaced the M3 with the new M3A1 gun, characterized by a more efficient bore evacuator and single-baffle muzzle brake. These rounds often exceed the armor-penetration capabilities of non-premium Tier 8 medium tanks. However, the T20 also pioneered the Torqmatic transmission, which proved highly problematic during trials. But it's not a burden is you know where to shoot certain tanks.
Much love to you all. Super Pershing is the only tank in the game where premium shell spam doesn't work and tiny weakspots need to be memorized. The end result was that, in 1943, the Ordnance Department lacking any guidance from the rest of the army, concentrated its efforts in tank development mainly on its major project, the electrical transmission T23. Armor wise, I miss the original armor capabilities. I'm sick of aiming at the springs and missing or bouncing. The T26E4 Super Pershing adds two 38mm spaced armor plates onto the upper and lower glacis on the front of the tank. Meanwhile, a series of T25s was built, inaugurating a new, far larger cast turret derived from the one on the T23, in order to accommodate a 90 mm 3.
The uparmored Super Pershing in Germany, with the improvised additional armor — Credits: Photographer unknown As such, Lt. The prototype series began as a medium tank upgrade of the M4 Sherman and ended as the U. Weakspots are common knowledge which can be mitigated by slight movements while reloading, and angling the tank upwards slightly. Communist forces from the North - with the blessing of the Soviet Union and China - invaded the South to begin the three-year long conflict on the Korean Peninsula. Funny part is only a Patriot and myself went up the hill.
Another prototype was produced, testing the T15E2 gun, using a T26E3 vehicle as a basis. The new Wright engine and short transmission gave it a low profile, as opposed to the Sherman. Army's first operational heavy tank. An alternative to targeting weakspots while in a T26E4 are its premium rounds which boast greatly increased penetration. In his absence, further attempts were made to derail the T26 program, but continued support from Generals Marshall and Eisenhower kept the production order alive. On the same day, another T26E3 was knocked out in the town of Niehl near Cologne, by a rarely-seen , at a range of under 300 yd 270 m.
This was designated T26E4 and was armed with a T15E2 90mm gun that fired a two-piece ammunition and a redesigned gun mount to eliminate the need for the stabilizers. As this tank is more of a heavy, I'm rarely outside of this range. Many officers, including Patton himself, were quite happy with the high mobility and reliability of this model, and opposed the introduction of a new heavy type, which was seen as unnecessary. However, this vehicle was not a regular T26E4, but a temporary pilot. The upper and lower glacis are now protected by 2 layers of spaced armor covering nearly the entirety of the frontal hull, making the tank very difficult to penetrate from the front once more: the upper glacis adds up to about 285mm while the lower glacis has an effective thickness of approximately 250mm.
A total of 25 vehicles had been built by that time, but never entered service. This was an upgraded version of the Pershing, sometimes called M46 Pershing. Despite the capitulation of Germany, the Empire of Japan fought on in the Pacific for a few months longer, necessitating the ultimate use of Atomic weapons to end the war. The T26E1-1 vehicle on a tank transporting trailer. I would suspect that 30mph was the maximum tested speed ie the fastest they got it to run under ideal circumstances during trials while 25 was the maximum conventional speed. The pattern is purely fictional, as there is no clear evidence of them being camouflaged.
