strange video.

footage from il2 tank-crew (first video): very strange behaviour of the AI. those soviet tanks sit right on the ridge, waiting and doing nothing, except presenting their vulnerable side-view to the Tiger ... only to be shot up one after the other, lol.

strange hype around the Tigers in general.

they were prolly one of the larger mistakes of the german arms industry. powerful gun / weapon -  yes. strong armour - yes. tactical mobility - reduced. strategic / operational mobility - very reduced. relation cost / effectiveness - very bad.

they should have gone for more Panthers, or a copy of the T-34. much more punch for the money.

cheers

The Tiger I was a interim solution before the Panther was ready. But it took longer for the Panther A to be ready so they build a less complex version, the D to fill the ranks
