Used briefly at the end of World War II, the M26 Pershing — a heavy tank named after General John Pershing of the Great War — is most famous for its role in Korea. Though its firepower was no match for the Soviet T-34, it had difficulty traversing the muddy terrain and was withdrawn from service in 1951 for the M46 Patton.
