- The M26 Pershing is the second American heavy tank, armed with a formidable 90mm M3 L/52 tank main gun. Much lighter and more maneuverable than its counterparts, it was deployed late into World War II due to delays and favouritism of the M4 Sherman. It is an overmatch for a Panzer VI Tiger even when going head-to-head, but still lacks the firepower to penetrate the frontal armor of a Tiger II. When facing superior tanks such as the Tiger II, use your superior agility to try to flank and hit its sides, or try to penetrate the tracks or the turret cupola. Remember to angle your tank slightly to increase the effectiveness of your armor.
- Even though you have enough firepower to take down every other tank in the game, don't go out there alone. Ask for some help from your fellow Tank Crew, Infantry, Recon Troops, Fighter Pilots and Paratroopers (if there are any of them of course). Because you are very slow, you are an easy target for -pretty much- everything and everyone that uses Anti-Tank equipment and weapons, Anti-Air Guns, or AP rounds, so try to play in a way where you don't expose yourself too much.
