Description Extended Information
 
Forces of Valor 80067 US M26 Pershing Heavy Tank - Unidentified Unit, Germany, 1945 (1:32 Scale) "The only way you can win a war is to attack and keep on attacking, and after you have done that, keep attacking some more."
- General George S. Patton Jr., January 1945

Early in June 1944, Army commanders expressed a need for a new breed of tank that could mount either a 90mm or 105mm main gun. This request was approved by the Army Staff soon thereafter even though trials of the new T26E1 had already begun back at Fort Knox earlier that year. Unfortunately, the first limited run of procurement vehicles did not occur until December 1944, largely due to in-fighting among the Army brass who were unsure which gun to use. The first twenty T26E3s were finally shipped out to the ETO in January 1945, with some seeing action in western Germany the following month. Full production of the heavy tank began in March 1945 when it proved itself time and again against some of the more formidable German tanks fielded by the Wehrmacht. At the same time the tank was redesignated the M26 Pershing, in honor of WWI General 'Black Jack' Pershing. Total wartime production of the M26 reached 1,436 vehicles with a further 992 tanks produced in late 1945.

This particular 1:32 scale replica of a US M26 Pershing heavy tank was deployed to Germany during the spring of 1945. Sold Out!

Unimax M26 Pershing 2nd Issue (1:32 Scale) June 12, 2013
Reviewer: Anthony Uecker from Mount Orab, OH United States  
Tank itself looks great, but antennae and m-2 mount didn't fit in their mounts on the turret. Would be perfect if it were not for those 2 things.
