Oh No! You got into the whole New Orleans thing! I have already proven that the Pershing was more than a match against the Tiger.

My Grandparents didn't have a car since they flew down. They payed $4.50 for a bus ride out of the city.

And finally I am paying income taxes from my job.

You can enlist at 17 with parental consent. I put down that I go to prep school. I am 17 as it is possible to pay income tax if you make over 10,000 a year even as a minor.

I bet that little attack played over better in your head, didn't it?

You're an insulting little man that doesn't know his place. Now if you don't mind I was talking facts not propaganda. So that kind of rules you out of this debate about quality German tanks doesn't it?

A M46 Pershing took on a destroyed 3 "superior" tanks! How is that propoganda. I'm saying that an American piece of armor is quality. The fact that you can't handle the fact that your precious Third Reich wasn't the best shows just how mature you are.

But alas the allies had domination of the skies and so our armour was smashed from above. If not for this factor Normandy would definately have fallen to the Wehrmacht.

I try to be factual at all times and speak only of the equipment and its superiority
My knowledge of the Tiger was it was an offensive tank but quite formidable if site in a good killing ground. That 88 devasted the British tanks during OP Goodwood. From a point of production though it was too complicated.

The Pershing was good but was still playing catchup technology wise and did not influence events on the western front. Because there weren't enough of them.

Exactly, along with the Tiger, they didn't play a defining role. The Medium tank dominated armored warfare.

The Panther was a better all rounder and far superior to anything on the allied side. The panther could actually fire while moving. No other tank could do this at that time. The allies stole this technology after Gemany was defeated.

The Tiger was a huge psycological weapon. Allied tankers would turn tail if they knew one was in the vercinity

The Tiger was a terror weapon. You are right the P IV and P V were Germanies work horses.
