The M26 Pershing

M26 Pershing 


In the Fall of 1944, production of the T26E3 had begun at the Fisher Tank Arsenal.

By January, 1945, forty of these tanks had been produced. Twenty went to Fort Knox for testing and the other twenty went to war in Belgium for "Trial by Fire".

General Bradley divided the twenty tanks equally between the 3d Armored Division and the 9th Armored Division.
