History T26E4 Super Pershing
To increase firepower, a new long-barrelled 90-mm gun was mounted on the T26E1 in January 1945. The prototype was designated the T26E4. Development was discontinued in January 1947 due to problems with the gun and the loading mechanism. A total of 25 vehicles had been built by that time, but never entered service.
The T26E4 Super Pershing is a M26 Pershing with upgraded protection in the form of spaced armor. It is analagous to the M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo in that it is the up-armored variant of a mobile medium. The T26E4 does not however have access to the upgraded engine or the long 90mm of the M26, but instead does have the similar but historically-accurate long 90mm tested on the tank. The turret face of the T26E4 Super Pershing has very good durability to complement the tough frontal hull. This makes it nearly impervious to HE shells from the front, and allows it to hold positions or assault them reasonably well.
