I read it and it said after three shots, one HE and two AP. Am I reading the wrong part?

Little tanks are still tanks.

Plus they had some decent early war medium tanks.

They were really the first medium tanks, unless you count the Matilda II as a medium tank. They also rolled over the Russians in 1941 before they could field the T-34. Although of course the T-34 was more than a match for the Pz. 3, it was still inferior to the Panther, in terms of raw performance. I am also quite a fan of British tanks like the Cromwell.

I was never a fan of the Sherman, tbh. Any sherman fans care to explain what is so awesome about the Tommy Cooker compared to the Panther and Cromwell?

But there have been plenty of medium tanks before that? The T-28 and Vickers Mark I come to mind. But even back to WW1 there was the Medium Mark A Whippet, and then the Mark B, Mark C, and Mark D.

I don't particularly like the T-34. I consider it a very poorly designed tank that worked well against the early Panzer IIIs and IVs, but faults in its design started to really show up after a while, too late to fix. I just see the Sherman as an average tank too, even if it is better, it isn't by a significant amount, especially in 1944 with the T-34-85, which fixed alot of the biggest problems.

Husseinarti wrote:kekius maximus

Well the industry of the United States utterly dwarfs everyone else, the Russians might come close to raw scale of output, but don't come close to quality of output. T-34s suffered from laxed quality control, due to a very understandable "Hey ivan they are like 100km from Moscow build tank now" situation, however these differences were pretty stark.

Well the majority of the 2,100 Pershings produced were built in a span of less than 12 months which outdid the previous 4 years of the Tiger I and Tiger II production runs.

It wouldn't be anything like 21,000 Shermans produced in a year like in 1943 but it'd make BMW, Krupp, Porche, Henschel and all them literally fucking cry the second Detroit Army Tank Plant, Fisher Tank Arsenal, and Lima Army Tank Plant start turning out fucking tanks.

american industry magic :ooo


I already stated I dont like the T-34. Also I don't see what you are trying to argue, I am not saying anything about Germany, I am talking simply about the Panther, that it would have been available in much greater numbers if the country which operated it had the capacity of somewhere like the USA, making it probably the best tank, just because of tactical superiority, the only reason it flopped was the Germans inability to actually make it work properly in large deployments.

Cromwell armour is better, yes, the Sherman has better angling which makes a difference, but the Cromwell ultimately had better protection.

The question is, What is the best? Well the best is easily the King Tiger, it's recorded kill ratio is just ridiculous over 10-1 in it's favour. Most of it's losses were it's own crew blowing it up to prevent capture so combat losses only it is even higher.

Yes it was a massive waste of money and fuel and god knows what else and that probably only hurt the German war effort but the question in the poll is not which tank had the biggest effect on the war but which is the best tank. One on one the King Tiger would smash any others on the list. It's the best.

If you want to talk about most effective towards a war effort from the list well that is either the Sherman or the T34. The Panzer IV should get an honourable mention here also.

Well when T-34-85s and M4A3E8s when head to head in Korea the Sherman found itself on top.

The M4 accounted for the largest majority of confirmed US tank kills in Korea. However tank-on-tank fights were super rare in Korea, with like less than 150 ever happening.

The 6th, 7th and 8th Panzer Divisions used 35s and 38s in lack of Panzer IIIs.

Pls read my post better:

The Rodina wrote:even if it is better, it isn't by a significant amount


You are also failing to take into consideration how abysmal the North Korean tank crews were, if they were equally matched crews, I could still see the Sherman coming out on top, but hardly by a significant amount.

That doesn't mean it is a medium tank. The T-34 took a role traditionally filled by the BT-7, does that make the BT-7 a medium tank?

That was mostly because they had no real need for any tanks, unlike European powers, nobody on their hemisphere was really a threat, and they had no intention to get involved in a war in Europe again. Of course that did change, but it is understandable, it would have been quite a waste of money, from their perspective.

Its cool but it lacked the overall serviceability and flexibility the Leopard 1 has.

Like out of 1970, the AMX-30 keeps just slowly degrading over time while the Leopard 1 stays relevant. Don't get me wrong it also goes down as well, but it has great systems like second-to-none fire control, a great gun, good ammo, etc. The AMX-30 had good stuff, but either because it wasn't was widely developed as the Leopard 1 or something else, just couldn't hold itself up as long as the Leopard 1 did.

Protection value is a relative term for tanks as it is a whole heaping mess of values beyond x mm at y angle, which is typically a gross, if slightly correct and incorrect at the same time measurement.

A tank with say, 15mm at 45 degrees has better armor than a 20mm plat at 0 degrees. However said 15mm at 45 degrees is going to be a bit worse than 50mm at 0 degrees. However, the 45 degree angle of the 15mm plate may allow it to deflect certain project tiles, while the 50mm plate will just need to take them head on.

Then there is stuff like wet ammo storage, fire walls, easy to bail out, etc etc.

You simply can't throw out the fact that the North Korean Army was not only backed and heavily trained by the Soviets to Soviet standards, but also were hardened veterans of years of fighting the Japanese. The Koreans did almost kick everybody off the peninsula, requiring the US to conducting naval landing operations to cut off the supply lines of the North Korean Army.

It was used as a medium tank by the German army until improved variants of the Panzer III replaced them. It was considered comparable to the Panzer III's earlier models until overtaken by the much more improved models.

Panzer III Ausf. A though to the F were all just a few tons heavier than the LT vz. 38s and 35s, which put them into a similar weight class as well. They aren't labeled 'medium tanks', but the Germans used them as medium tanks in lieu of lack of the Panzer IIIs.

That is correct.

Repeating yourself instead of actually refuting the point isn't exactly smart.

What point? That the Tiger II accomplished shit? That's already an obvious conclusion.

Also, the Panzer III were not the first medium tanks. The T-28 predates them.

It was american is hardly an argument.

It's the only argument I need.
I can imagine the number built being an important factor, otherwise it just seems like an average tank like the T-34.

The T-34 was also built in large number. Really, you could consider the average WWII tank to be one built in large numbers, and by that criteria the Panther is below average.

The T-34 was also no used in as many utilities as the Sherman.
Also what is to say that the Germans would have been incapable of producing a similar number of Panthers if their industry hadn't been totally flattened from like 1942-1945. (And had crews to fill them ofc).

They didn't, so that's a moot point.

For example, if the United States had for some reason developed the Panther, would they have been able to churn out as many of them as they did Shermans?

The Americans would've used it for everything, like they did the Shermans.

The T-28 was an expensive, operationally ineffective pile of junk tbh (explainable by the fact it was made in 1933)

But it was a medium tank. I wasn't arguing about its effectiveness.
The Panzer III was the first effective Medium Tank to be employed on a wide scale. Is that better?

Not really, because that wasn't your initial statement.
