Pershing Tank vs Tiger
There was only one tank my tester would allow me to try the Pershing against, and that was the Tiger. People talk about the two tanks being a poorly balanced match, here are the results of the Pershing's shots against the Tiger:
Hit Rate: 100% (Of 50 shots, none missed)
Penetration Rate: 48% (Of 50 shots, 23 were penetrating)
Glancing Hit Rate: 54% (Of 50 shots, 27 were glancing)
So the amazing, decisive result was!!!!! Lukewarm. The Pershing had about 50/50 penetration/glancing chance against the Tiger. And, as you will later see, the Pershing takes about 50/50 damage from the Pershing Tank. The real difference is the damage, wherein the Tiger did about (~)1/7th damage to the Pershing, whereas the Tiger took about (~)1/10th damage from the Pershing.
