Thank you for your many comments! This article is currently undergoing a revision. Of course, the line between the specific versions of the T is blurry different factories made different versions at the same time. I recommend getting some of these, besides the Aberdeen Trials pricy but definitely one of the best out there :.
Wikipedia also suffers with the same stats problem for military aircraft. In reality, the day to day fit of these aircraft would mean the top speed would be much lower due to drag and weight. In fact the F Eagle used to break speed records was a stripped out purposely modified example, I think they removed any unnecessary components and even the external aerials. With this number, the T tanks must have been much more established than common perception. These were the only general issue German AFVs with any reasonable chance of success in one to one combat with a T or KV tank, and based on a cursory analysis of armour and firepower, this chance was theoretically low.
In other words, even in the Red Army fielded over 1. There is no doubt that a large proportion of Ts in fell victim to operational type losses, especially in the situations the Red Army found itself in during the summer of Many Ts had little or no armour piercing ammunition in June , although they did in the months that followed.
Many Ts were abandoned and lost due to breakdown, being bogged down or simply out of fuel. The combat results for show the Soviets lost an average of over seven tanks for every German tank lost. Of the total of 20 Soviet tanks lost in , approximately 2 were Ts and over were mostly KV heavy tanks. Individual tank commanders lacked situational awareness due to the poor provision of vision devices and preoccupation with gunnery duties. In comparison Soviet tanks had a generally rough and ready finish, and lacked many features which were assumed essential by German tankers and to a large extent by their Western Allied counterparts.
There were of course considerably more Soviet tanks, which ultimately helped them to win the war.
Tigers were meant to act as parts of assault groups, accompanied by infantry, assault guns, and tank destroyers. Even if a s. Abt goes off on its own and starts fighting enemy tanks, we run into a different problem. German tank losses were counted much differently than Soviet losses. A German tank is considered lost if it is destroyed, and, more importantly, there is no longer hope of recovering it. That is why losses can show up days, even weeks, after the tanks have actually been destroyed.
When looking for German tanks losses, a much more reliable method is to look at dead crew members. Pretty sneaky. KVs: 1 actually destroyed by the Germans, 4 lost in total. Germans claim 5 KVs. He debunks many of the revisionists myths, but of course there are far more people with an axe to grind against the USSR and its WW2 performance than their are people interested in the real truth. Also if I may add the article here in Tank Encyclopedia is good, but it does include some the details the revisionist who have an axe to grin against the USSR have written.
The T was a good tank, but any good tank will perform badly if its crew is only given 3 days of classroom training and then expected to perform, add this the political mess the army was in during the first half of the war and you get what you get. Then of course the lack of radios on models until meant that every tank sent into battle without a radio was an incomplete tank.
The most important part that people seem to have forgotten over the years. A tank is an anti soft target weapon, it often, but not always, is meant to fight infantry and soft vehicles. Anti-tank weapons both stationary and mobile are meant to be used against other tanks. The T is a good example of this. Hello John, thanks for you insight. The T article will be adressed and probably rewritten in the future, however we do not consider the revisionistic tankarchives to be a reliable, independent source there have been discrepancies between posted material and inquiries which we directed towards the Bovington Tank Museum , neither the WoT forums occassionally, useful information is posted, but usually out of context.
They do not fullfill the criteria of correct research, i. Primary sources are always desireable with 2ndaries supporting the postulate. If WoT or WT would represent the benchmark for tank warfare, then the Soviets would rely on flag communication during 41 and the Germans would have fuel shortages in I do not see how your posts and their content, which is known debunk any of the problems that were present with the vehicle, you have to admit that histography tended to notoriously overglorify its performance.
It has to be pointed out that out of 55, Ts, 46, perished during the war, a testimony to its performance, regardless of the cause. If any German weapon system would have sustained such losses during the war, literature would have titled it as a failure. The T is a victim of wartime propaganda and was used as an alibi for the Wehrmacht or their failures for that matter. The Aberdeen trials were never truly published, the only information is of nuncupative nature.
Accuracy is a relative term, I do not see a big issue with that you cannot do many mistakes with such a gun design anyway, at least regarding the paper characteristics. The problem revolved around the optics which were initially of lower quality besides a FCE penalty and radio insufficiencies up until 43 or a bottleneck of unskilled labour and that is only scratching the surface. However quality and accuracy are relative terms, German and British guns enjoyed an advantage. Cause of tank losses differed by front and period, in a defensive phase AT guns played a more significant role, if we look at causes of T losses, it is obvious that in the initial phases of Barbarossa many tanks were destroyed by mm fire besides the most common element, operational losses and abandonment and later to It is noteworthy that during evaluations both Soviet and German alike it was observed that it was difficult to determine if a tank has been hit by an AT round from a tank or from an anti-tank gun.
Such a method of fighting against attacking tanks leads to enormous irreparable losses in their ranks. Crew mortality on the eastern front tended to be higher than in the ETO 44, compare Ref. If anything the Panzerkampfwagen VIs role in the war was subsidiary. Pure Tank vs tank contigencies occured rarely, but If we look on the outcomes of Panzer battles, the Germans frequently sustained lower casualties.

This gap can be partially explained by the discrepancy in development levels of both nations, besides direct factors such as recovery and repair, training and control of the battlefield. If we look at combat reports on the eastern front multiple tank engagement samples , it becomes apparent that the Axis forces enjoyed a substantial advantage CEV. Of these, 1, T26 and T70 combat lost, 73 T26 and T70 depot repaired. Soviet reports do depict a rather grim picture. Kursk is a good example, since both armies were at their Apex strength. The battle marked the prelude to the heavy fighting in 43 and casualty wise it was undecisive.
Since these discussions tend to cause emotional upstir, with vanities taking over, this can be discomfortable for certain individuals whenever pointing out the differences, perhaps due to the political incorrect nature of these statements.

TE does not have a personal agenda and there is no intention or personal motivation to specifically discredit any weapon system. It will not participate in intentionally distorting historical facts and attempts to avoid heated debates. I hope the readers can respect this. I hate to be a Grinch buuuuut, WoT tends to make stuff up.
Take a look at the tech tree. Just for the record Wot is still just as fun. Their crummy motors were prone to seizure at any moment. The transmission so hard to shift that the bow gunner kept a sledgehammer nearby to beat on the shifter lever while changing gears. Their Christie suspension used long undamped coil springs which would cause the tank to rock when traveling over uneven ground and continue to rock for several minutes after coming to a stop to fire the main gun.
The T had so many problems that there was a constant shortage of replacement parts for years.

Stalin believed that many were sabotaging their tanks to avoid being sent into combat so had the units investigated and found out they were issued unreliable junk instead. The Germans captured huge numbers and wanted to use them, so tried correcting the transmission woes then gave up once it became obvious that the engine was junk, too. They still used them but in a limited fashion and used spares gleaned from knocked out Soviet tanks.
On the other hand, the Soviet tankers were very happy with their Lend-Lease Shermans. One commander mentioned hiding beneath one with the crew after taking a hit which set the tank on fire. Incorrect caption. Such as she with weapons in her hands destroyed murderers and invaders, the enemies of mankind. Remember about them! There is no politics, only gratitude to great people. I see. Her example is one of thousands.
Well, official propaganda, well, they have such a task, everyone does their work. As for the bokovnikov, it really can be placing good pictures, you need to think about the correctness of Russian inscriptions? Is it a good tone to correctly write in foreign languages, agree? Russian language is not so mysterious.
Translation: As for the Battle of Kursk, it should be noted that the Germans actively used the T in their attacking orders. Approximately one Tiger or Panther had one T Unfortunately, there is little to write about this, but there is a photo of the German side and very characteristic, for example, where between the Tigers there are thirty quarters.
Or panoramic — where there are at least 20 T It should be noted that practically all German Ts were lost in that battle perhaps some of them were captured by Soviet troops back.
