    Yeah that may be true; but, it's kind of hard to row a Tiger II when it runs out of gas. Then again I don't think any Tiger crews were eaten by sharks in the Ardennes.

    It could have been some sort of Euro-Yetti instead of a shark.

    Didn't you ever wonder where all the crews of the so-called 'abandoned' Tiger tanks had gone

    Bottom line is, i would see a another Battle of the Atlantic spelling absolute catastrophy for KM naval forces. Simply not possible. Perhaps if they had an ally in the Caribbean who knows. Even if they by some odd cirumstance made it ashore, how would they go about conquering cities such as NY? Americans would destroy the bridges. No air support from anywhere either. No carriers.

    Oh actually they could.
    Sealion is feasable, (but difficult) to pull off.
    The Axis could certainly invade the US. (but conquest & occupation wouldn't work)

    Before you go on with this line of thinking, please use the Search function for Operation Sealion and read through some of the extensive threads discussing its unlikelihood.

    I'd be amused if anybody invaded my neck of the wood. My gun club regularly provides "OPFOR" for these guys to train against.
