Description

The US Medium Tank M26 Pershing made its appearance at the end of WWII. The Pershing was equipped with a long 90mm gun and exhibited incredible mobility. It was first deployed on the European front in February 1945 as part of the effort to invade the German homeland. The Pershing, of which 200 were used against Germany until its surrender, successfully engaged Tiger I and Pz.kpfw. IV tanks.

When the Korean War began in June 1950, the M26 also fought successfully against the rival T34/85 Soviet built tanks of the North Korean and Chinese volunteer armies.

  • Length: 245mm, Turret with its 90mm long barrel gun and boat hull like underside, have been faithfully reproduced with an incredible level of detail.
  • Crew hatches can be assembled in either the opened or closed position. Moveable suspension.
  • Small details like separate parts for the engine grills and cast iron appearance on the hull and the turret are accurately reproduced.
  • Machine gun ammunition boxes and two crew figures (torso) are included. Decals for 4 different tanks.
