The M46 Patton is a medium tank used by the United States Armed Forces during the early stages of the Cold War in the 20th century.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The M46 started its life as an upgrade of the M26 Pershing and eventually developed into a new type of tank - one of the main medium tanks of the United States of the early stages of the Cold War (1949-1950s). Restricted primarily to United States service, its key upgrade was the replacing of the original power plant with the Continental AV1790-3 engine and Allison CD-850-1 cross-drive transmission and the 90mm M3 gun of the M26 Pershing into the M3A1 with bore extractor. Its only known period of service was during the Korean War.[1]

The tank on the mural belonged to the 1st Marine Division deployed during the Korean War.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The M46 Patton appears in the mural at the Museum of Freedom in Fallout 4.
