The claim is for Stug.Abt 667 and is in a report dated 14.11.43.
By June 1944 they were claiming a total of 20,000 enemy tanks destroyed by Artillery (towed/SPG) and 15,000 of those by Stug. From Jan-May 1944 2031 tanks were claimed destroyed for the loss of 436 Stug.
The June claim was 245 tanks
July 1019
August 847.
So 4142 claimed tanks in the East in 8 months.
18261 for Stug. in the period 22/6/41 to 8/44.

Remember it is the work of the propaganda boys!

Greetings "Everybody" who has joined this thread over the last, :shock: gasp, nearly 7 years !!!

It's been so long since I started it I've completely forgotten (old age and all !! :wink: ) what the heck my intentions were in the first place !!

Oh Yeah !! I was going to be the "secretary" in coming up with a complete compilation of the "Tank Aces".

Looking back, after nearly 7 years, I now have a problem of where in the h*ll I filed the "Completed" list of names.

Oh Well !! I know it's in this computer somewhere and can only hope that the results that YOU all came up with is as nearly accurate as we could make it.

If not ....... "Beats Me!!"

:D :up: :beer: :D
