This is a 135 Scale M26 Pershing U.S. Medium Tank Plastic|
Model Kit from Tamiya.
The U.S. Medium Tank M26 Pershing made its appearance at the end of WWII
to allow the American Army to stand up to the wrath of German tanks. The Persh-
ing, which was equipped with a long 90mm gun and exhibited incredible mobility,
was first deployed to the European front in February 1945 as part of the effort
to invade the German homeland. The Pershing successfully engaged the Tiger I
and Pz.kpfw.IV tanks. When the Korean War began in 1950, the M26 also fought
successfully against the rival T3485 Soviet built tanks of the North Korean
and Chinese volunteer armies.
