I review the M26 Pershing, a tier 8 American medium tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 10 Himmelsdorf and Cliff battles.
The Pershing has an unimpressive reputation, for good reason. While the tank provides American comfort in terms of gun depression and turret protection, it is lacking in many other ways that limit its effectiveness.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb gun depression (-10)
+ Excellent view range (400)
+ Good turret protection
– Poor silver AP penetration (190)
– Low top speed (50)
– Sluggish acceleration
– Low DPM
– Soft hull
– Large profile
– Relatively poor camo
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
