I could debate the Panther and Tiger 1E stats. The Tiger had thicker
than the Panther, but the Panther's was better sloped and thus was
EFFECTIVELY thicker. Also (if I remember correctly), the Tiger's 88mm
while larger in calibre actually had a lower muzzle velocity than the
Panther's long 75mm. However, change Tiger 1E to Tiger 2 and you've
got it. I'd give a T34-85 the same stats as the Panther but with Basic

And THANK YOU for the Firefly mention! The UK and Canada made good use
what was considered the best Sherman variant. I heard that politics
the US from adopting the Sherman.
