The Super Pershing is not what was on that forum post, it's the T26 Super Pershing, basically a Pershing with Panther's armor bolted on. It is real, and they are adding it.

Doesn't it also come with a better 90mm gun? I did some reading on it and it said that it was upgunned to the 90mm T15E1 rather than the standard 90mm M3 that the Pershing normally used.

Although, with that bolted on armor, I would assume a slower than average acceleration and maneuverability. It'd play more like a heavy than a medium, probably, which makes sense, since the Pershing in WWII was designated as a heavy tank (they changed it later on).

a super Pershing really is just a more upgraded version of original M26 Pershing.

If I recall, the Super Pershing were designed as an effort to match the firepower of the Tiger II's more powerful 88 mm KwK43. (The original Pershing still use the 90-mm M3 gun. which was similar to the German 88 mm KwK 36 used on the Tiger I. it's outdated).

the T15E1 90 mm gun was developed and mounted in a T26E1 in January 1945. This tank was designated as T26E1-1.(M26E1 Super Pershing). The T15E1 gun was 73 calibers in length and had a much longer high capacity chamber. This gave it a muzzle velocity of 3,750 ft/s (1,140 m/s) with the T30E16 APCR shot and could penetrate the Panther's frontal armor at up to 2,600 yd (2,400 m). This model used a single piece 50 in (1,300 mm) long ammunition and was the only Super Pershing sent to Europe.

*notes the long 90mm cannon. it's the  T15E1 90 mm which were design to compete agains king tiger long 88'  (KwK 43 L/71 ). but it cannot be used on original pershing version so they have to modified the tank to fit it.

back to topic : I don't know myself if Super Pershing will ever be added, since the M46 Patton can far outmatch in term of perfomance there's no way M26E1 can replace the Patton as tier IX(9).

it do have potential to become a tier 8 premium tank though. like a slightly better version of an M26 pershing similar to T34. which is slightly better than T32.

EDIT : also when you use pershing and use the T15E2M2 90 mm. you're basicly transformed into the Super Pershing. :Smile_veryhappy:  (just realized, but i'll keep my original post anyway).

The YAWR from this week had a mention of the Super Pershing.


Will there be new MTs of tier 8, or close to it? (in general and in this year in particular)

There’ll be at least one premium MT of tier 8 added, the Super Pershing.


So, it IS in development.

I doubt that. if there'll be any premium tank added. it'll be the T23
according to WoT wiki

"The T23 was removed in the patch 0.6.5, it was replaced by the M26 Pershing, and the M26 Pershing's position was replaced by the M46 Patton. At the time it was removed it was said that the T23 will be back in future patches."

but would that mean they'll remove the T15E2M2 90 mm gun from original Pershing ?

because that's what super pershing use.
