A modernized version of the M26 Pershing. It was an interim tank between the M26 and the durable M47. It retained the forward hull and turret of the M26 but was armed with the newer M3AI 90mm gun. Although acceptable for a late 1940s design, it had many deficiencies. Over 800 were produced by modification of the stock of M26 Pershings including a new engine and transmission, improved fire control and suspension systems. Served in Korea as the primary U.S. tank.
