The last American tank in the “heavy tank” class. A decently balanced tank – it has a very powerful cannon, but the weak armor on some parts of the tank force it to take a careful approach to choosing a firing position.

A cast hull in the spirit of the times, the American “answer” so to speak to the newest USSR tanks. Apart from the interesting shape of the frontal armor, the tank has a simply gigantic turret which the commander sat in the rear of. The commander's seat was literally lined with separately-loaded shells. It is thought that such a massive turret was necessary as a counterweight for the huge cannon.
