"Imagine if Maus entered serial production and worked without tehnical breakdowns, would allied tanks stand a chance?"

 

"Tiger tanks and crews, we salute you for your valiant bravery and efforts!"

 

"The Tiger actually saved on resources. This is what a lot of people don't understand..."

 

Fucking hell

If the tiger tanks had actually achieved the sorts of kills that were claimed, then yeah, maybe it was a decent cost/benefit.

 

But then again, if what was claimed in Berlin were actually true, then by early 1945 the Soviets were unable to make another offensive, fortifying the Eastern Front was a complete waste of time, and that both Porsche and Henschel tigers should be produced because the tiger (p) was better for the North African theater and the tiger (h) was better suited to Russia.

Thickness of add-on plate on the turret front of the CV90. This is the plate that's to the left of the gun (to the right when looking at the front).

Thumb for scale. Hatch is about 3-3.5 cm thick.

Whatever this armour is called, the periscopes are the driver periscopes:

The glacis add-on armour from the previous post is the bit where the driver periscopes are located on. The previous photo is the right front.
