Super Pershing Pilot 1 stance?

On the Super Pershing Pilot #1 the tank has extra armor taken off German Panthers?
I’m working on Hobby Boss 1/35 kit I do plan to build other Pershing variants and wonder if I should put some squat in the suspension to show the extra weight

Not sure if this has been discussed before, any advice would be helpful


I would rely on photo’s where possible.

That Pershing was redesigned T26E4, temporary pilot number one, It’s iregistration is number 3010292 and its history is covered extensively in this book if you can find a copy.

My crappy pictures of pictures from this book are for discussion purposes only

The war ended before it ever encountered any enemy armor, according to the author.
