Another of my LDD tanks, this time it's the Pershing. My next Classic Space creation will come shotly.
About this creation

The Pershing was the first operational heavy tank of the US Army. It was designated a heavy tank when it was designed in WWII due to its 90mm gun, which was at the time the largest caliber gun found on a US tank. In 1957, the US developed the M103 tank which had an even larger 120mm gun, and the M26 Pershing was re-designated as a medium tank. It was briefly used both in World War II and in the Korean War. Intended as an improvement of the M4 Sherman, the prolonged time of development meant only a small number saw combat in the European theater.



It's amazing 10 degrees of gun depression.


The rear, note how it gets more narrow.


Another view of that beautiful arse


bonus: the T26E4 SuperPershing

It was armed with a longer 90mm gun, rivalling the power of Tiger II's 88mm. Only one was sent to europe, and to protect their only tank the soldiers welded a Panther's upper plate on it. They also welded boiler plate to the turret, and the turret had a counterweigth on the rear and springs on the front to help lift the massive gun.

The tank in real life, over 2000 were produced. Read more here.


What about World Of Tanks? I have a short episode playing it, so you can check this out! Sorry for the selfpromotion, but I don't want my videos to go unwatched :D

An excellent version of the original. I like how you included a source photo in the page. Using double width chains to get the track width to the right proportions is a clever idea. I like the way that you've built the barrel of the main gun and the way that it pivots too.

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah Not interested in tanks much but it does look pretty accurate... Nice work!
Thanks! It's funny, how I build such different stuff. Tanks, Classic Space, miscellaneous spaceships... right now, I'm working on an Aquazone creation, so that's gonna be interesting.

This is easily one of the best Pershing tanks I've seen in Lego, everything from the sloping of the glass plate to she shape of the turret is just fantastic. Great job.

Very nice MOC, the chain guide is perfect. The overall picture is very real

Quoting Claw Paradox Pretty good. I would suggest elongating the track covering thingy on the front, though.
The "front track thingy" was often discarded in combat, you can see that on a lot of pictures it's missing it's front mud guards, because that's the first thing to come off in battle.

Quoting Tommy S. Great build, will you be modifying it to a super Pershing ?
There is already a bonus render of T26E4, and both versions are included in the LDD file.

Beautiful build Alex! It looks just like the real thing! I really like the turret, and the back of the tank! BTW, I watched the video, and I think that especially in the first battle you should try sidescraping a bit more; it's actually a really effective technique, even with the Cromwell, Comet, and Centurion tanks. The tracks take most, if not all, of the damage. I think it would help you to do more damage while taking less. Great job with the Lego and WoT versions!
