The idea of overwhelming an enemy with quantity rather than quality may seem at odds with a U.S. Troops of the 60th Infantry Regiment advance into a Belgian town under the protection of a Sherman tank.
That situation only became more desperate for Germany as Allied airpower bombed factories and disrupted supply lines.
By mid summer 1944, the Allied forces had 4,500 Sherman tanks in France, representing more than three times the size of the German panzer (tank) force facing them. The numbers advantage gave the Allies a strategic edge, but it didn’t make Sherman tank crews feel any better when they had to face heavier German tanks on the battlefield. Sherman tank crews paid the price in blood to learn how to deal with the German Panthers and Tigers by using the Sherman’s mobility to maneuver into a position where they could fire upon the weaker side and rear armor of the German tanks. Soldiers of the 55th Armored Infantry Battalion and tank of the 22nd Tank Battalion, move through smoke filled street. If you are willing to lose brave or at least disciplined personnel, you can do wonders with mere production of numbers.
Polish Lancers on horseback were not effective against German tanks at WWII because Polish Lancers _NEVER_ attacked German tanks.
Nobody else bothered to say it, so I will: Very big of you to acknowledge that you had some facts wrong. Dziekuje – thank you (Jen KOO yeh), Apart from countless battles and skirmishes in which the Polish cavalry units fought dismounted, there were 16 confirmed Cavalry charges during the 1939 war.
The Polish cavalry was equipped with a portable anti-tank rifle that fired tungsten carbide-cored APCR rounds. The United States and the Allies won the war against the Nazis for three reasons: 1) Hilter was a psychotic twit and 2) most of the Allied technical material was designed to be user-proof, that is, simple to fix, operate and build. It wasn’t that American equipment was drastically easier to repair, it was that the average GI had more experience with motors than their German, Soviet, Japanese, or British counterpart. Because almost all American GIs had some experience with cars, if their Jeep for instance broke down most GIS could jury rig it and get it going again. American vehicles used more standardized parts than the German habit of constantly refining their designs thus leading to semi-custom vehicles that were hard to stock parts for.
American equipment may have been slightly easier to work on overall, but the big advantage remained that American GIs were far more familar with motor vehicles than the soldiers of any other nation and as such were much more adept at field repairs than any other soldier. Adding heavier armor to the Sherman tank would have only limited its mobility and made it more vulnerable.
Worse, it would have limited the Allied ability to advance, requiring different parts already in the field, fuel for the Shermans to run with the added weight, and secondary supply logistics to run the extra supplies (which means that you have trim down in other supplies being transported). People forget that a tank’s design (or any weapon) must take into account its logistical footprint as well as its ability to transport itself (or be transported) to the battlefield in the first place. First-to-see, First-to-fire Vs Looking-for-the-enemy and Waiting for his first shots to reveal himself.
The historic record of many Battles, including the Battle of the Bulge stipulates that Sherman tanks were destroyed at around half the rate of the Tiger Tanks (with the Battle of the Bulge’s records corroborating this literally with 90 Sherman tanks destroyed vs 180 Tiger tanks). As it is, history demonstrates that the Tiger tank succumbed to its deficiencies first and foremost.
I’d like to point out, that adding the hillbilly armor also had little effect against German AT shells. Some of the techniques were of little use, but welding on double thicknesses of armor plate was definitely effective. I haven’t read enough on the T-34, but from what I know it sounds like the Soviet tank probably deserves the MVP tank award for World War II.
I haven’t read enough on the T-34, but from what I know it sounds like the Soviet tank probably deserves the MVP tank award for World War II. Going back to the Sherman, its reliability and strategic mobility (ability to get anywhere it was needed pretty quickly) saved thousands of infantrymen’s lives. Again, the war was won Soviet T-34s not by Shermans which basically had similar idea behind them. The fires were traced to ammunition stowage, and later versions of the Sherman had their ammunition stored in liquid-lined bins, greatly reducing the vehicle’s propensity to burn in the event of a shell penetration.
As for the T34-85, the M4A3E8 Shermans was easily a match, and postwar, the HVAP round was vastly improved with new propellant and a redesigned penetrator that was much more effective against high-obliquity armor (like the Panther’s).

A growing wartime shortage of materials such as molybdenum — combined with steel to give tank armor its durability — led to more brittle protection for German tanks. That numbers advantage meant that the Allies had enough tanks to support infantry attacks against enemy defenses and additional tanks to act as a mobile armored force ready to exploit breakthroughs in the German battle line.
Most Sherman tanks had 75mm and 76mm cannons that usually failed to penetrate the thick front armor of panzers such as the Panther or Tiger tanks at most ranges, whereas German 75mm or 88 mm cannons could penetrate the thinner armor of Sherman tanks from the front at long ranges.
Polish Lancers attacking German tanks were only a Nazi propaganda’s invention to stress how a poor and primitive country Poland had been at that time.
Also, the US built effective school programs to train our soldiers in specialties like tank or truck repair. Pretty sure it holds the title for the most mass-produced tank of the war, and it caused a minor panic in the German military when it first appeared on the battlefield — the German Panther tank seems to have been built as a direct response to the T-34. Pretty sure it holds the title for the most mass-produced tank of the war, and it seems to have caused a minor panic in the German military when it first appeared on the battlefield. Germans were shocked already in 1941 when they met T-34s first time and Germans military asked to copy those. The M93 HVAP round was good for 178mm of penetration at 1000 meters, versus 130mm for the BR-365P 85mm APCR, and the Shermans carried plenty of it in Korea, unlike WWII.

Sherman tanks who faced an uphill battle against more powerful German tanks during World War II. Some historians and military history enthusiasts still scoff at the capabilities of Sherman tanks when compared with the German Panther and Tiger tanks that carried both more armor and more firepower.
But finding a balance between quantity and quality could prove a useful lesson for the modern U.S. Slaves working in German tank factories deliberately sabotaged the oil and fuel lines of armored vehicles. By comparison, German infantry rarely had enough tank support and relied more on a wide array of armored vehicles such as assault guns and tank destroyers with fixed guns that lacked turrets to turn.
Francis Baker, commander of Sherman tank with an improved 76mm gun, during a battle with German Mark V Panther tanks on Nov. The answer provided by Zaloga represents a complex stew of misguided military doctrine, a relative lack of U.S.
Army initially preferred to keep its tanks grouped in large divisions as armored cavalry ready to exploit breakthroughs by charging into the enemy’s rear — a role that was well-suited for the mobile and rugged Sherman tank.

The British wisely developed more powerful anti-tank guns and also created a new version of their own Sherman tanks, nicknamed the Firefly, with a more powerful gun to deal with the German Panthers and Tigers prowling Western Europe. Such scenarios tended to favor defenders, which is why German tanks on the attack suffered about as heavily as Sherman tanks on the attack. Far from making the tank more vulnerable, the extra protection allowed it to shrug off frontal hits from various German antitank weapons, including the Tiger I’s 88mm. The cramped T-34 hull was not amenable to a powerful gun, and thus had to make do with an 85mm weapon that was ineffective against either of the German heavies’ frontal armor. The T34-85 had aggressively sloped armor, at the expense of a cramped hull, but the turret was large, slab-sided and carried ammunition, meaning that in the event of a turret penetration, a catastrophic ammunition fire would likely result (and that’s why knocked-out T34-85s in Korea typically had their turret roofs blown off).

The cost and complexity both limited production and led to a high rate of mechanical breakdown on battlefields, which limited the impact such elite tanks could have on the war.
German mechanics also had to deal with a growing shortage of spare parts to repair the tanks.
That sense of confidence and complacency among senior Allied commanders only began to change during the Battle of the Bulge in Dec. By comparison, the Germans, British and Soviets all developed a second class of heavier infantry-support tanks separate from the first class of cavalry tanks.
If anything, Sherman tank crews spent the vast majority of their battles shooting at non-armored targets such as buildings or enemy troops.
But such situations also favored well-trained and experienced tank crews who knew how to ambush or surprise enemy tanks.
The Germans fought well but were more ad hoc about salvage and repair, partially because they were often retreating and leaving damaged tanks behind. One mass-produced Sherman variant, the M-36 tank destroyer, was armed with the M3 gun, and was fielded in quantity in the autumn of 1944. Take advantage of your coupons and you'll get even more with your hard-earned money, helping you buy more of the fashions that you want. 1944, when the desperate Germans launched an armored counterattack led by Panthers and Tigers in the Ardennes region of Belgium and Luxembourg. Such infantry-support tanks, such as the German Tiger tanks, required heavier armor to survive direct assaults against enemy defenses consisting of anti-tank guns. Their complacency about the Sherman being up to the job was fed by the fact that the Germans had not used their best anti-tank guns early on in the North Africa or Italy campaigns.
Even Panther and Tiger tanks could easily fall prey to Sherman tanks striking from the side or rear. Also, the Germans were forced to use a variety of equipment from captured armies and manufacturers in occupied nations. Army Sherman in World War II” by Steven Zaloga, a military historian and senior analyst at the Teal Group Corporation. While the Battle of the Bulge raged on, Hanson Baldwin, a New York Times war correspondent, wrote an influential story published on Jan. They also failed to anticipate the growing threat from German infantry anti-tank weapons modeled on captured U.S.
Army spent almost six times as much on aircraft as tanks from 1941 to 1945 — $36 billion versus just $6 billion — in a successful effort to dominate the skies and cripple Germany’s wartime industry through strategic bombing raids. They just did not have the industrial base of the US to produce equal quantities of standardized designs. The tale of the Sherman tank’s road to victory represents a history lesson with implications for the future of warfare.
