The Greatest Tank of WWII was the Tiger I??

Maybe the best KNOWN overall, and the most notorious, but far from the greatest. This tank was designed as a 30-ton tank (later upgraded to 45 tons) but still came in between 56  and 62 tons; it was underpowered and poorly suited for any kind of mobility battle. Tanks are weapons of the offensive; this tank was not equipped for that type of warfare (remember Blitzkrieg?), nor was it well suited for “cornfield meets” at 500 meters or less.

Fantastic picture of 3 panzers in a bomb damaged repair shop. What’s really interesting with this picture is the range of vehicles. In the background there is a Panther in the middle is a late version of the panzer IV with extra armor fitted around the turret. In the foreground there is a panzer III bbc9994e93ad5e2104fbdcdc2f58aaf8
