Re: Tiger Kills and Losses

The above 2 Tigers were not the only ones knocked out around Rauray.

Re: Tiger Kills and Losses

A wise move. Trying to pass off your opinion as fact has not served you well. It is clear that all you are doing is Googling any subject I bring up and then doing a cut-and-paste with any article that re-inforces your calumny.

800 in Normandy x 20 = 16000. At a stroke you give Germany twice as many tanks as the Allies
