    I always thought tanks could go anywhere. Not so. If the barrel hits anything the aiming is gone. You have to do it somewhere again. So going trough the forrest might destroy the aiming. C****.

    Looks like they are not expecting any battle soon as they have a cover over the mouth of the gun.

    Not sure here but in Stugs the gun would turn 5-10 degrees from side to side. Otherwise the driver had to make the gun moves.
    Btw the man to demand and want Stugs was Manstein.

    How about German plane attack photos with b-17s. They seem quite awful.

    Too bad Mr Porsche lost the Tiger battle. The ca 90 Tigers he made were turned into Ferdinañds.
