The Heavy Tank T29 and Heavy Tank T34 were American developmental heavy tanks started in March 1944 to counter the appearance of the Tiger II at Normandy.
the T29 was based upon a lengthened version of the T26E3 chassis and featured heavier armor, an upgraded Ford GAC engine providing about 770 bhp (570 kW) gross, 650 bhp (480 kW) net, more comfortable controls for the driver, and a massive new turret incorporating the high velocity 105 mm gun T5. It weighed approximately 60 tons unstowed and 64 tons combat loaded. Its maximum armor thickness was 279 mm compared to 180 mm on the German Tiger II while its 105 mm gun was 7.06 meters long compared to the 6.29 meters of the Tiger II's 88 mm. Other trial models had Allison V1710 V12 engines.
