Throughout the war the Germans had a technical advantage over the Allies with their Zoo of armoured vehicles, the Americans tried their hardest to close this gap but all of there efforts weren't ready before there superior numbers overwhelmed the German warmachine. You can now though put down the rabid German animals with the best the Americans had to offer.

The Pershing was originally designed to take on the Tiger tank, but by the time it was ready for combat Kingtigers where roaming Europe. To combat this new threat one of the prototype Pershings was upgunned with a more powerful 90mm cannon & rushed to France for field testing. Once there armour salvaged from a destroyed Panther tank was added, which brought it on par with the Kingtiger. The crew then went looking for prey but they only knocked out one Tiger tank before the war ended.

A post war upgrade of the M26 Pershing, most of the improvements are internal tho (engine, gun, armour thickness etc), so to differentiate it from the M26 in-game I gave it a tiger stripe paint scheme, which was used during the Korean War to "scare" the enemy.

The T28 (aka T95) is probably the most unique tank built during World War II. Originally designed to breakthrough the bunkers of the Siegfried Line. It's heavy armour, impervious to any know gun at the time meant it could drive right up to the enemy's defences & blast away. The Siegfried Line was breached before it was ready tho so thoughts turned to using it in the invasion of Japan but again the war ended before it could be put to use.
PS: This is the third time I've made a vxl of this tank & I'm still not happy with it XP

The first true heavy tank design since the M6 at the beginning of the war. It was used to test several types of engine & a experimental parallax rangefinder which in theory would have given it the ability to fire accurately at long ranges but it proved to be unreliable in anything other then perfect weather conditions.

The last of the war time heavy tank designs, the T34 used the same layout as the T29/T30 but equipped with a new 120mm cannon. The experience gained from working on the T34 was later used to help design the T43/M103 heavy tank.

Miggy me lad, your still working on this? Voxels look as amazing as ever though the detail has dropped a little I think, and I can see your still doing the normals manually. I'd tell you to keep it up, but your doing a far better job of it then I did.

Anyway, it's good to see your still kicking mate.

Cheers,
James.
