Fascinating. So in Tunisia, the British did ballistics tests on a total of two Tigers: Tank #231, and tank #241.Byrden wrote: ↑08 Sep 2019 17:24That book refers to Tiger "231" of the 501st, knocked out on 31 January 1943 on the road to Robaa. It was tested to destruction in situ by the British.
In another incident, they also cut out an armor plate from the hulk of another Tiger, and fired a couple of shots at that as well.
They seemed to take these test results more seriously than the Americans, given their push to re-equip themselves with the 17 pounder gun.
