The T26E4 was previously called the "Super Pershing" in the game and in every wiki.  But not anymore -- the term Super Pershing has been erased from the tanks name and description.  Is the "T26E4" sold in the premium store the same tank as the prior T26E4 Super Pershing?   I owned the Super Pershing at one time a few years ago and then foolishly sold it (I cannot recall why), and recently realized it was probably my best tank so far, although it seemed horribly slow at the time.  Now I cannot find it to repurchase -- unless the T26E4 is the exact same thing.  Sometimes tanks with the same numbers have different variants but I cannot find any online database dis-ambiguating the T26E4 Super Pershing from the plain old T26E4.  Anyone know if they are the same? Thanks.

The T26E4 is the Super Pershing. They have shortened a lot of the tank names. But it says T26E4 SuperPershing in the garage. Even though in the tech tree it only shows the T26E4 title. I have it in my garage and can verify it is still the same tank. Pref Matchmaking and all.

Or is the Super Pershing the T26E4?

 

One may never know...

The T26E4 is the Super Pershing, though some the specs may be different from when you had it .

It is the same tank, in my garage carousel it shows up as T26E4 Super Pershing .  But i also cannot seem to find the Super Pershing name anywhere else.

Wargaming finally looked up the word "Super" in the dictionary and found it didn't fit the tank really.

They're the same tank, some tanks just have their names truncated so they fit. It's a similar situation with the Polish tanks- they actually have some pretty involved names when you look at them in the tech tree and garage but they're all shortened to just their model numbers in-battle, i.e. "45TP Habicha" to "45TP" or "53TP Markowskiego" to just "53TP."

Hey you are right I found the name too. If you hover the cursor over the tank in the tech tree it says Super Pershing.  Weird that they would take that out of the name in the Premium Store, but whatever.  Thanks for the responses!

If you owned the SuperP and sold it, submit a ticket and they should give it back to you. You'll need proof of having played it. Customer support has always been great for me. Best wishes.

 

Honestly tho, it really isn't that great anymore. It's too slow to keep up with the swift losses recently and the armor is easily penetrated by newer tanks.
