World War II: M26 Pershing

America's answer to the Tiger- the M26 Pershing & you can see one at the Tank Museum, Bovington - http://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/americas-answer-to-the-tiger-the-m26-pershing-you-can-see-one-at-the-tank-museum-bovington.html

The Pershing evolved from a design programme that began in It incorporated many new features when compared with earlier American tanks including tors

Geshutzwagen (GW) Tiger. A late war German self-propelled gun using Tiger II components...

Two monsters of WWII. The Jagdtiger and what looks like the very rare GW Tiger. Geschützwagen Tiger was a German self-propelled gun that apparently never saw service.

IS-3 (JS-3 - Joseph Stalin 3) | USSR  Very innovative tank for its time, dureing the course of WWII it's front armor was never penatrated by Axis powers; IS-3 also lived as a very succesful Heavy tank up until the uprise of MBTs

i imagine the Armour of the holy order bears a lot of stylistic similarity to the IS series of tanks. holy order tanks are unpolished machines of death, they spew thick smoke, make loud noises and end lives in that order.
