The Heavy Tank M26 Pershing was an American heavy tank used in World War II briefly and in the Korean War . It was named after General John Pershing , who led the American Expeditionary Force in Europe in World War I .

Development of the M26 during World War II was prolonged by a number of factors, the most important being opposition to the tank from Army Ground Forces (AGF). As a result, only the initial 20 M26 (T26E3) tanks deployed to Europe in January 1945 saw combat in World War II. [1 ] The M26 and its improved derivative, the M46 Patton , both saw more combat in Korea. The M26 was underpowered and mechanically unreliable and so was withdrawn from Korea in 1951, in favor of the M46, which had a more powerful engine. [2 ] The lineage of the M26 continued with the M47 Patton , and was reflected in the new designs of the later M48 Patton and M60 Combat Tank .
