Im really in love with the pershing. It currently has the 90mm M3 gun and it works. For most of the time. But since i grinded the crapout of this line for the last 24 hours i am currently stockish. What should i focus first on for him ? The top 90mm gun tracks or engine ? Or lets say the turret ?

Pretty much always gun, engine or turret, tracks.

Though I've not driven the Pershing so maybe it is an exception...

Good thing I grinded it then.

 

Get the turret first. Pershings strenght depends on how well you can utilize hulldown tactics and the stock turret is very soft for that. Upgradeable turret increases gun mantlet from 120mm to 203mm on the center with overlaping 400-800mm effective spaced and angled turret armor in the corners. Turret roof, cupola and the cheeks are relatively soft but will mostly get the job done, as long as you dont take too long with the peeks.

 

Engine second. 140 hp is no little deal and will give the tank an additional 4 hp/ton, changing its mobility from a heavium to a true medium tank. You can substitute by running double fuel and engine accelator which will give you a nice 665 hp, only 39 hp short of the better engine.

 

Gun third. Honestly I kinda gave this module a second to think but be it M3 or T15E2, the base AP penetration on both is not going to be enough for dealing with all that early cold war armor you are going up against. Luckily for you the Americans have produced very strong HVAP (APCR) ammunition for their 90mm guns so when in doubt, spam gold. 

 

Get the tracks least. 3 additional degrees per second aint gonna make any difference.

The Pershing is an exception, IMO.

 

I recommend this order of research:

  1. Engine
  2. Turret
  3. Gun
  4. Tracks

 

Engine gives you more of a traverse boost than tracks does.  Gun has 20 mm more AP pen, so you use less APCR.  Turret isn’t required to mount top gun, doesn’t improve gun handling, but adds 90 hitpoints and is a big improvement on armour.  Tracks last, improved acceleration, important for dodging aimed shots on your top hatch.
