T-34: Most historians agree that T-34 were the "best" tanks of WWII. Not because it is the most powerful, but rather its optimization for mass production. T-34 has good sloped armor, good mobility, and good firepower. Its strongest point is the simple production. The Russians were able to build tens thousands of them quickly which helped them to win the war. Tiger, was probably the most fearsome tank of WWII. There were several dozen German tank ace whose tank had destroyed more than a dozen enemy tanks. Most of these tank aces were in Tiger tank. When you are in a Tiger tank, it is hard not to be a tank ace. Its armor although not sloped, it was 100mm in the frontal, 80mm on the sides. The quality of steel of these armor are also superior to anything had been putting onto a tank in the history. This feat alone helped German Tiger tanks to survive countless hits. All they needed to do is to return fire with their 88mm gun. A single shot form 88mm can completely destroy a Sherman or T-34. How can you not be an ace in this tank? You are almost immune to enemy fire from the front, and you can knock them out at 2~3km with a single shot! Tiger 2, it had even more armor and firepower than the Tiger 1. It was also named King Tiger or Tiger Royal. It has 150mm frontal armor and 180mm frontal turret armor... sloped! When a piece of armor is sloped, its actual thickness greatly increase thus make it much harder to penetrate. This beast had an average kill/death ratio of over 10 to 1 even when Germany had already lost the air superiority. The downside of both Tiger and Tiger 2 are their complexity of manufacturing. German military ordered 5000 Tiger, but only 1300 were ever built. Only 400 Tiger 2 were manufactured. Even with such low numbers, these two tanks are known for have "off the scale fear fact". Everyone could reorganize a Tiger tank on the first sight. My favorite tank is Tiger (1). What is yours?
