The basic M26 Pershing set, which includes a tank and a figurine, has been extended in the EXECUTIVE EDITION version with a model of the American M5 cannon. The set also includes four unique figurines and a black name plate. Add-ons are only available in the EXECUTIVE EDITION version and we do not plan to release them separately.
The tank and cannon models were carefully designed in 1:28 scale using 1065 COBI building blocks. The models have movable elements such as: working tracked traction, rotating wheels, raised and lowered barrel of the tank and cannon, rotating turret, opening hatches and engine service flap. The set includes new figures depicting the tank crew. Noteworthy is a unique figurine inspired by the figure of an American general who became the president of the USA after the war. Blocks and figurines are covered with high-quality prints that do not wear off during intensive use. The whole set is complemented by a black plate with the name of the extended EXECUTIVE EDITION set.

The set provides many hours of exciting construction. Realistic brick models will certainly attract the attention of mature and younger fans of bricks, history and military technology. The set is a perfect complement to the Historical Collection dedicated to the Second World War.

- Modern Pershing tanks threw on the tape caught the last months of World War II, characterized by high efficiency. They mostly went to General Patton's army, where they did a great job. Production of tanks began in 1944 and lasted until the following year. About 2200 copies were made. The tank was equipped with armor up to 102 mm thick and an effective M3 90 mm cannon. The end of the Second World War did not mean the end of the service of this model. Tanks again went into battle during the Korean War in 1950-1953.

- The 3-inch M5 gun was produced in 1942-1944 and during this time about 2500 copies were made. They were used during the Italian campaign and on the Western Front during the Ardennes Offensive. They were the equipment of tank destroyer battalions. For their towing, M3 Half-Track armored personnel carriers were used. Despite the good effectiveness, the cannons were not very mobile. After the end of the war, they were withdrawn from line service. Since 1953, several cannons have been equipped with the Presidential Salute Battery, where they are used for ceremonial purposes, to give salutes of honor.
The gun will perfectly match the M3 Half-Track set (COBI-2536). Owners of the LIMITED EDITION Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk (5816) can also add it to the President and Honor Guard soldier figures included in the helicopter set.
