It's not much of upgrade to T1 Jumbo, losing very close second best frontal armor to gain proper heavy class gun, at drastic increase in respawn times and cost.

- The M26 Pershing is the second American heavy tank. Armed with a formidable 90mm M3 L/52 cannon, it carries enough firepower to punch through all enemy armor it may face.
- The M26's ammo rack, and especially fuel tanks, are extremely damaging to the tank when destroyed. Utmost care should be taken to not expose your side or rear armor to the enemy, as a knowledgeable enemy tanker can easily take advantage of it and make quick work of the tank.
- The T30E16 APCR round M26's main 90mm gun employs exhibits outstanding armor-penetrating performance up close, even capable of punching straight through an unangled upper frontal plate of a Tiger II within 40 metres.
- M26 is the most mobile tier 2 heavy tank in the game. This mobility can be used to reach certain locations faster than its counterparts, and in turn provides the M26 an advantage in combat many would've overlooked.
