Historical Reference

Successful combat use of the assault M4A3E2 tank with enhanced armor spurred the decision to create a similar modification of the M26. Chrysler started production of the improved vehicles in July 1945. Trials revealed that it was necessary to reduce its off-road speed to avoid damage to the suspension. A total of 27 vehicles were manufactured to take part in trials and experiments.
