Re: Herr Pferdmann rides again!

September 17th 1942 (9) Obersleutnant Schwarz felt the vibrations through his hands as his trusty MP38 did its work. His men were back to familiar work, clearing built up areas of enemy infantry. The ferocity of the German assault troops drove the British from Falluja. https://i.imgur.com/f7otYxN.j...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

And that's what I mean, instead of building new heavy tanks and self-propelled guns, it was better to build 16,000 Pz IV and let's say 20,000 StuGs to adequately saturate the all fronts in the most important operational directions and areas. It's not that easy to do, because this would require re-t...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

Most sources seem to claim that a (late production) Tiger cost like 2-2.5 times more than a Pz.IV. 250.000-300.000 RM vs. 115.000 or something. So the question should be more like 2.5 Pz.IV or 1 Tiger I. Just to be the devil's advocate, if two or more Pz.IVs have no chance against a IS-2 in a norma...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

The Pz.IV might have been on par with the T-34/85 and the Sherman, but was certainly outclassed by the Soviet "beast killers": IS-2, ISU-122, ISU-152 and SU-100. And thousands of these were produced from 1944, and there were the Sherman Firefly, Comet, M36 and M26 in the west which also seem to hav...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

Years a go I read a book that discussed some of the German mistakes. One of them was the obsession with the next big tank. The authors hypothesis was that the Germans would have actually done better if they'd just stuck to the PzIV. He backed it up with a lot of numbers and its not just the cost. I...
