It did a outstanding job?! having to take on german tiger tanks on a 5 to 1 basis??? hell, only the british 6 pounder firefly had a real ability to be
a tiger killer! and even then it wasnt deffinitive, in fact, neither was the 76mm and the 75mm would glance off the front and sides at almost any
if it was so hard to ship? how come the T-26's later introuduced at the end of the war could be shipped oveR? in fact, in 1944 the allies pretty much
owned the seas! we were hunting down THEIR subs!
it wasnt even that much of a risk at that time to ship over tanks!
You know, it was Patton who even told sherman commanders, they couldnt even stick sandbags on their tanks to protect against enemy tanks that bit
more?! he basically sent crews to their deaths, in tanks, that were easily peentrated and destroyed by tigers, and the like!
he even opposed the creastion of the T-26!
now please, again, try to tell me how the sherman was so brilliant, a baseline sherman, not the jumbos or the british firefly's, if they were so
easily taken out by germantanks resulting in many loss's of life for tank crewers?
