Re: Allied tank units

This is unfortunately a blind spot of the US Archives :( - we have to turn to the photos... What is established is the units in ETO landed with M4+M4A1 75mm (DD are another case) plus M4 105 and M4A1 76 in July plus M4A3 76 and 75W in August and M4A3 105 soon afterwards.

Re: 24. Panzer division and its Sturmpanzer IV

Re: Question regarding the Firefly

This type of shot was multipart: a smaller shot (not the full size diameter of the bore) of harder metal and lighter elements to reach the full bore diameter - the elements peeled off after the muzzle brake and the lighter shot gained velocity to have higher penetration against the target's armour

Re: Need Details on US M1 57mm ATG

"I know only AP rounds were standard issue to US forces. How many rounds were standard issue? how many could the PCs haul in a jeep/kubel or APC?"

Re: Panzer Regiment 8.../Kevin Fish (Schiffer)

Re: Panzer Regiment 8.../Kevin Fish (Schiffer)
