Sherman & Pershing
The Super Pershing was given a huge new gun and plates of extra armor. It was so nose heavy they had to add external recuperaters.
They still maintained the bow machine gun.
A Paul Heiser Sherman is here next to the Pershing. You can see the Sherman is a tall tank and rather short in length.
The narrow Sherman is in sharp contrast to the main battle tank size Pershing.
The 90mm gun of the Pershing was huge and need the new large turret for recoil space and ammo storage.
