The Jeep was junk? The M1?
Jesus Christ i know you're an idiot but now you're also an illiterate one, the Sherman was junk the jeep was good, simple enough for you? Read what others write before you decide to reply to someones post.
The Mustang (which was designed , built and put into action on 117 days)?
You're as always a sad little retard attempting discussion on topics that outgrow you. The total R&D for P-51 was 19 months, the prototype was delivered in 117 days thats all so no it was not designed, built and put into action in 117 days.
It was designed in 90 days, developed in over a year and a half (from prototype to the final version) and put into combat 2 years after the order has been placed (in 1942) you can go back to your cave now.
the Sherman was not conceived for tank to tank combat.
Yes it was pointed out by a guy who knows next to nothing about tanks and now supported by you, our village idiot.
The first batch of Shermans were direct replacements to Grant tanks and they were delivered to Africa specifically to fight German Pz IIIs and IVs so yeah the idea behind the Sherman was exactly to fight enemy armor.
But let me ask you what was Sherman built for according to you? As a mobile kitchen? A shield behind which infantry could take a crap? Why was the Sherman given the heaviest (in its time) possible anti-tank gun? Why was it loaded on AT ammo?
So naturally the Tiger which was much larger and heavier would be a safer tank to be in, etc.
A T-34 which was smaller and 5 tonnes lighter was a safer place to be too so whats your point? In fact so was late Pz IV with shields.
Many of the German weapons were way ahead of their time
Like what? Russians had better rocket artillery, Americans had better aircraft, Brits had better radar, all of the technologies Germans messed around were present at least from 1930s.
The technological superiority of German armed forces is a myth that doesnt hold up to closer scrutiny, the fact is that Germans had just invented a much more modern approach to war and could and did do more with weaker weapons but for obvious reasons West and Russia avoid it.
Take the American army where every trooper had an M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle, at the same time Germans used a 98Kar bolt action design that remembered WW1, Germans simply messed around with technologies hoping they'll save them but the same or similar level in almost every field was available both to East and West and more often then not Germans did fall behind.
