That depends on situation. Ofc when i look at M26 Pershing and T-54 face to face, i will shot at Pershing, but from flanks T-54 is my primary target.
M26 Pershing is a good tank, but it really needs better armor protection, so i hope M46 Patton will compensate that.

Why would u fire on the T-54 even then? the m26 is a bigger treath since it has slightly higher dpm...

Becouse letting T-54 get to in your lines is a bad thing, these tanks can cause true havoc with their agility, speed and protection. Pershing dont have such abilities, rushing Pershing = dead Pershing, so they usually never attack. Well, ofc Pershing have better dps, so if i see it from long range it is my primary target instead of T-54.

The M46 used an M26 hull with minor modifications to fit a new engine. This engine is available in WoT.
It also used an M26 turret, with an upgraded gun. 2 stronger guns are available in WoT- the Super Pershing's long 90 mm and the 105.
In other words- the *real* M46 is already available in game and can even be upgraded.

The M47 turret will be available for the WoT M46 (which had sloping armor more/less 140 mm thick that was pretty pimp), judging by the screenshot posted somewhere. That turret actually required a 10 cm larger ring diameter than the M26/M46 hull had, so it wouldn't fit. Historical accuracy FTW.

If they're adding the M103 (which entered service in 1957 according to wikipedia and 1956 according to http://afvdb.50megs.com/timeline.html) and it's cancelled late '50s-early '60s upgrade, the T110, they may as well add the 1952 M48 Patton. It's not like the T-54 has equipment only from 1944-1950 available, or has a realistic rate of fire of 3-4 rounds per minute...

So the Pershing must be nerfed. It's overpowered :P

Before the '-' crowd gets active, the above is a joke.

Currently i'm grinding with my T23 to get the pershing. I safe my free xp to research and mount the long 90mm as soon as i get the m26.
Now my question. Is it a big difference from the 90mmM3 to the 90mmT15E2? Do the 20 mm more penetration have an effect or is it the same "we didn't get through" gun as the 90M3?

At T9 it is still to weak gun, and will bounce alot from all T9-T10 tanks except american ones  <_< , but will be easier to deal with T8 heavies. Anyway, this gun is not bad, it have pretty good rof and acc.. And dont forget, to mount any new gun on Pershing, at first you will have to change suspension.

Wrong... You can put in the best engine, radio and the 90mm T15E2 'cause they have the same weight as the 90mm M3, start engine and radio... ;) But after that you should get suspensions 'cause you just need them for playing better, mount the 105mm and the turret ;)

After getting my Pershing, im starting to see that rushing around like i did in the T23 is totally not the right thing to do, it doesnt have the speed to do that effectivly, so ive resorted to playing like a heavy tank sitting back and moving up when the heavys do, ill leave the rushing to the med spots to faster tanks.

Pershing is great tank , in 1vs1 with t54 i usually destroy the t54 cause of , i dunno why, yes the speed is a problem, top speed of 48km/h while panther was 53 and t54 55km/h .. kinda shitty imo , but pershing bounces alot of frontal shots dealt to him, it needs more speed, armor and the 105mm gun is great :D but yes 2 things it needs are speed and armor , but not hopeing for improval cause this game really is all about  RUSSIAN tanks:P

What why?
It has decent enough armour and manoeuvrability

When the Pershing comes it will be sacrificing all its decent manoeuvrability for a bit more amour (which is negligible) and the Long 90mm, which will probably get a ROF nerf to that of what the 90mm is on the T23

Right now I feel like playing my M12
- The credits you get are incredibly low for the damage you deal
- The EXP you get are low as heck if you lost the game
- Etc etc etc

I really should'nt have sold my T23, which I enjoyed more.
(2851 EXP on the E8 is my record so far, but yeah nice going with that Pershing on that screen)

I doubt I'll like the Pershing in the near future.

Not impressive.

Excluding x5 and double exp for first win of the day it's still almost 3k exp, so similar result to yours. IMO impressive is the right word here.
