You are wrong.

From a modelling site providing history on the Super Pershing:

Quote:
The Super Pershing was a unique version of the T26 series built on the original T26E1 pilot tank, but re-armed with a more powerful version of the 90mm gun. It was not US Army practice to send prototypes into combat, but in February 1945, Ordnance decided to ship the pilot tank to the European theatre for a 'trial by combat'. The Super Pershing, also called the 'Super M26', arrived in Europe in March 1945. It was assigned to the 33rd Armoured Regiment, 3rd Armoured Division which, by this time, was operating in Germany.

The Super Pershing had been rearmed with a new, long-barrelled T15E1 90mm gun that was designed to offer performance comparable to the German 88mm KwK 43 on the 'King Tiger'. The T15E1 gun could penetrate 220mm of armour at 1,000 yards at 30° using the new T30E16 tungsten carbide HVAP (High Velocity Armour Piercing) round. On arrival at the 3rd Armoured Division, the ordnance battalion decided to enhance the Super Pershing by adding additional armour plate to bring it closer to the armour on the 'King Tiger', and this was done under the direction of Lieutenant Belton Cooper. There is an interesting account of this project in Cooper's memoirs entitled Death Traps which was published in 1998. The five tons of appliqué armour were fabricated from layers of 40mm boiler plate on the hull, a plate of 80mm armour taken from a German Panther on the gun mantlet, and other scrap armour on the other locations. The Super Pershing was first issued to an unidentified company within the 33rd Armoured Regiment and it first fired its gun in anger on 4th April 1945 when it engaged and destroyed a German armoured vehicle, possibly a Tiger or Panther, at a range of 1,500 yards during the fighting along the Weser river.

From Wikipedia:

Super Pershing

The 90-mm M3 gun of the Pershing was similar to the German 88 mm KwK 36 used on the Tiger I. In an effort to match the firepower of the Tiger II's more powerful 88 mm KwK43, the T15E1 90 mm gun was developed and mounted in a T26E1 in January 1945. This tank was designated T26E1-1. 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.
Quote:
A single Super Pershing was shipped to Europe and given additional armor to the gun mantlet and front hull by the maintenance unit before being assigned to one of the tank crews of the Third Armored Division. An account of the combat actions of this tank appeared in the war memoir Another River, Another Town, by John P. Irwin, who was the tank gunner. Zaloga described three actions in his book. On 4 April, the Super Pershing engaged and destroyed a German tank, or something resembling a tank, at a range of 1,500 yd (1,400 m). On 12 April, the Super Pershing claimed a German tank of unknown type. On 21 April, the Super Pershing was involved in a short range tank duel with a German tank identified as a Tiger ? the German tank bounced a shot off the Super Pershing's extra armor and then was knocked out by the Super Pershing with a shot to the belly. Irwin described the tank as a Tiger but Zaloga expressed skepticism that it was a Tiger. After the war, the single Super Pershing in Europe was last photographed in a vehicle dump in Kassel, Germany, and was most likely scrapped.

At least they haven't announced any changes to the T29. I like my T29, most OP tank ingame atm (for its tier). It can deal even with E75's if you can go hull down on them, which happens on most maps. I've had quite a few beast matches with it, I'd take it anyday over my IS3. I got ammo racked about 23 times today in 18 battles (racked a few times again after I used repair kit) using IS3, most paper thin armor ever on that thing.

The Super Pershing is actually in-game already, it's the Pershing with the long barreled 90mm, and it incorrectly doesn't have the springs on the turret to support it... Silly Wargaming.

1. late 50s-60s tank.
2. a tank only slightly better then the T55, mainly by gun (it wont have 115mm gun)
3. Will be balanced.
4. All nations get a 50-60s tank or equivilants if they didnt have any which are balanced for gameplay use.
5. You missed the a.
