Anyone have any info on the Super Pershing?

Was talking to someone who was mentioning an encounter between a Super Pershing and a King Tiger, sounded a little far-fetched.

Not very educated on the use of tanks in WWII :-)

S.P. was only used in Korea I believe, but it was not really succesful.

I only heard about a pershing-panther dueal.

That would be known as the Duel at Dessau on April 21, 1945.

Did it happen? I don't know for sure.

There is a write up on the encounter here. However, according to this write up, it was just a myth. We had a Super Pershing in Dessau on April 21st (two in Europe by that time), however there are no official documents stating a Tiger (or major German Armor in general) being in or near Dessau. The Closest Tiger II was 70 miles away in Berlin.

So, who the hell knows lol.



:D
