Thanks for the video link. I was wanting to find such study long before (as to how A. Speer was able to jerk up german production despite arial bombardments and lack of resources.... This gives at least an insight in the german production philosophy. Though I think I should comment on 1 or 2 things: There it is said that germans were bad/foolish into having a multitude of tanks models and short production runs as compared to the russians. That is a too simple conclusion: Both the soviets and the germans (and the americans) start off at a point in time during peace to develop a tank that is according to their knowledge (of the military! also the soviet and the US!) THE BEST tank there is (armament, armour, speed) ..all things related to reliability, endurance, mass production benefits are left to the industrialists to optimize in the future. Now, the germans had their STATE OF THE ART tank Pnz IV and III developed BEFORE WW2. So had things gone well in russia , then there would have been NO Immediate demand for a big fat tank like the Tiger and the pnz 3 and 4 would have had a longer production run, and eventually would have been produced cheaper, and faster (except that the americans and the russians were keen and smart but also FORCED to set up plants to focus on MASSproduction as a necessity; the Russians becoz of life/death, the americans because of running in their lagging behind). Naturally, the germans had to "start all over again" when being confronted with the first T34 and KV1 in 1941....a new set of DEMANDS were put on paper and the Tiger/Panther came , despite war time (!!NO MORE PEACE TIME!!!), within 2 years. The Soviets were in luck to have been able to design their T34 and KV1 IN PEACE time when having studied the german tanks (before WW2 exchanges) ..and OF COURSE these tanks outmatched the german pz 3 and pz4. Lest not forget the germans destroyed all of their prewar tanks such as the t26, BT5, BT7, etc.... Also, the way in which he portrayed the "so many " "nightmarish" german tank models pz3 and pz4 .... You had that with the t34 and KV1 too...IF YOU COUNT all the different turret models, and engine upgrades, and gun upgrades. But overall he has made a good point in that german production lines /set up sucked.....and maybe THAT is exactly what Albert Speer Changed in 43 . MY question is: DID he do it in this (american/russian) way ? According to the Me262 anecdote "what good is to have a more reliable jetengine if the pilot/plane dies within 5 sorties?" I believe he did.... So why didn't we get to hear anything of that in his presentation ?
