Notice that tanks were blown-up rather than carried away to be canibalised, because of relatively light damage, and all, including 4 sent for home due to cracked plates and penetrations, are declared losses.
If, as you claim, 'Homeland Repair' tanks had only light damage how is it that the 'Homeland Repair' Tiger are counted as 'total losses'?
No, I corrected your complete falsehood that tank has to be very heavily damaged to be sent home, as evidence by texts you wilfully decided not to disclose.
One can create some kind of picture with those tables along with this one.
Performance of the Tank Repair Services - At the front, ie, the tank repair shop companies of the regiments, armies and army groups, exclusive of repair services in companies, etc~:
Which means that this miniscule share of a miniscule group of vehicles that needed specialised repair were actually scrapped because they were deemed unrepairable.
And how indeed?
If the devious germans wanted to deceive the honorable crusader of uber-panzer mythbusting, why is it that something as mundane as a molotov hit is declared as a total loss?
But given that you brought up Tiger wrecks here are some wrecks knocked out in battle and then written off as 'abandoned' when the Germans broke and ran. I presume they are not to be counted as 'knocked out in a fair fight'?
Random pictures and your completely unreliable word doesnt mean anything to me.
Sad that people have to resort to fabrication to make their case. I explained why some tank wrecks were carried by the unit and in a desperate attempt at deflection it is now claimed I say all tanks were carried. I guess if you were brought up on uber-panzer myths it is hard to let go.
Your fabrications maybe.
You are the one who finds it worth enough to argue about what I presume is a statistically big enough sample of carried wrecks within one unit.
Its semantics. If it is never repaired then the damage it received proved fatal. No one ever mithers over Allied tanks destroyed by their crews and they will be awarded as valid kills to any German 'ace' who makes a claim in the general area where the Allied tank is discovered. For example the Cromwells set alight by British crews at Pt 213 at Villers Bocage were falsely awarded as 'combat Kills' to one Michael Wittmann'.
Yes, those crews set their tanks on fire for laughs. It has nothing to do with one Michael Wittmann.
