PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
On June 25, 1950 the North Korean Communist forces invaded South Korea. The first U.S. troops to come to the aid of South Korea landed in July, 1950. These were hastily dispatched from Japan and brought with them the M-24 fighting tanks. Apparently they had been selected for duty in Japan because of their light weight. Anything heavier would have been too much for the Japanese roads and flimsy bridges. Their inferiority to the Russian supplied equipment was immediately obvious. The first man-sized tank on the job was the M-26 General Pershing with a weight of 45 tons, mounting a 90mm gun and having a top speed of 25 mph.
Next in action was the M-46 General Patton, our only post-war tank, which was one of the first U.S. designs produced by evolution from the M-4. The Patton is similar to the Pershing at first glance. However, it is a superior tank, having a speed of 35 mph on the open road with a weight of 47.5 tons. It is equipped with a 90mm gun as on the Pershing tank, but is heavier and harder hitting, with higher muzzle velocity. The ammunition used is an improvement- utilizing a shaped charged shell. The muzzle-brake, a single baffle type, was found to be as efficient as the double baffle type on the Pershing. The Tank has a 30 cal. coaxial bow machine gun and a 50 cal. anti-aircraft gun mounted beside the tank Commanders' hatch on the turret. This latter gun was occasionally moved to a mount in front of the Commander's hatch for easier operation against ground forces during the Korean War.
