In his own words.More correctly SS/Tiger tank obsession
I see this thread doing its usual 'throwing a track'.
I must admit, the whole 'Tamiya' conspiracy thing is actually hilarious!
He did not. This is a common myth. Try and reference it and you will find your error.
but had to stop 500 yards beyond it,
The people who did the M4 survey that showed 90% burned when hit also found that 75% of hits on a Panther penetrated.histan wrote: ↑03 Feb 2020 20:27
Amateurs are obsessed with output measures and define ridiculous metrics - such as Tiger to Sherman kill ratios - that they claim demonstrate "success". When other ridiculous metrics - such as ammunition used per claim made - challenge their firmly held views, they quite rightly show that such metrics are deeply flawed and in fact useless. Nevertheless, they still quote equally flawed metrics to support their own views.
If you read the survey, you would note that 'the people who did the survey', who had a fuller picture of the shermans accounting BTW, showed that 82.5% of hits by 75mm and 88 mm projectiles penetrated and brewed up the sherman. And, to be absolutely clear, that is all aspects (front side rear). This is from page 199. and, yes, 'those people' made a mathematical error. It should be 33/40 not 33/45. This data is for 'brew-ups', or a total write off.The people who did the M4 survey that showed 90% burned when hit also found that 75% of hits on a Panther penetrated.
Those who like the M4 % were not so keen on the Panther %. I have no idea why!
