The M46 Patton is an American tier 9 medium tank.

Developed in 1948 and 1949, the M46 Patton was a modernized and improved version of the M26 Pershing. A total of 1,168 M46 tanks, in two basic variants, were manufactured between 1949 and 1951. Pattons saw wide use in the Korean War.

It is the evolution of the M26 Pershing. The Patton is slower compared to its tier 9 medium tank counterparts, but its maneuverability and powerful 105mm T5E1M2 gun make this tank a pretty hard target to kill. Even though this tank doesn't have enough armor to take direct hits without damage, sloped turret gives this tank much better chances of survival in dogfights than it might appear on paper. By wisely using the sloped turret in combination with its great gun depression and on-the-move accuracy, you can increase your chances of victory. Out of its tier 9 medium tank counterparts, the Patton is the "Guerrilla Fighter."

The M46 Patton leads to the M48A1 Patton.

Historical Info

The limited use of the M26 Pershing at the end of World War II led US forces to believe they had the basis for a successful tank design. However, the tank did not meet the requirements laid forth by the Ground Forces Equipment Review Board in 1945. The key complaint with the Pershing, was that it was underpowered. The M26 used the same drive train as the M4 series. With the increased weight of the Pershing, it was an inevitable conclusion that a new power plant was needed.

A new engine, the Continental Motors AV-1790-1 V-form, 12-cylinder, water-cooled, gasoline engine was combined with a newly designed General Motors CD-850-1 cross-drive transmission. This power plant provided 740 hp, a somewhat limited increase in power. The novel design of this unit was it acted as a transmission, braking system, and steering system all in one unit. In addition to this modification, a bore evacuator was added to the M3A1 90mm tank gun, along with a single baffle muzzle brake. Certain other changes were made, including an M83 telescopic fire control system, and round transmission access covers.

In essence, the Patton was basically a modernized Pershing. Originally designated the M26E2, the tank was accepted into service as the Medium Tank M46. It was given the nickname "Patton" in honor of the great World War II general George S. Patton, Jr.

With the outbreak of the Korean War, the tank was rushed into action alongside its M26 cousin to combat the North Korean T-34-85s.

The first M46 entered US service in late 1949. The tank saw action in the Korean War from 1950 to 1953, where it proved superior to the Russian T-34-85. About 200 M46 were used by the US forces in Korea. The M46 was retired from US service in 1957. It was exported only to Belgium, and only in comparatively small numbers.
