That's a one-off jschmus.  It's also the "Super Pershing", different from the "Jumbo Pershing".  The T26E4 was a standard Pershing (T26E3) with a bigger, better gun.  The T26E5 was a Pershing with the normal M3 90mm gun, but massively thicker armor a la Sherman Jumbo.  Because it was cast that way from the beginning, it's actually not very impressive looking for having double the armor.  Look around the turret ring, though, and you can see the massive increase in armor.  Also not the permanent extended end connectors, one of their lastuses on US tanks.



Cheers,
