yeah. Tiger was a disaster. That's why everyone in Allied tanks shit their pants when they rocked up. My great uncle was in Operation Market Garden - I can assure you they were not sitting there bigging themselves up saying 'don't worry - it's bollocks lads. Can't reach far, it's too heavy, too slow and can't turn. Lets go smash it' :P :D

The Tiger mark one was an excellent tank, when it worked. The gun was outstanding - basically an 88mm flak gun modified to fit onto a turret - and could knock out any allied tank in the early years (1942-1943). I don't know where you get your facts from tranny but you are wrong mate.

My Grandad was an anti-tank gunner in WWII so I know a thing or two about these beasts. I have read a few books comprised of first-hand accounts detailing encounters with Tiger mark one. Essentially the allied tanks at the time could not penetrate the tiger's armour unless they were really close, got a lucky shot (the trap between the turret and the hull), they got a shot in the back or they ganged up on the tiger - which happened a lot. The Russian T34 was probably the most successful tank to go against the tiger mark one (in a 1-1 fight).

First-hand accounts of British encounters with the tiger mark one (in the bocage in France) told of their shells 'bouncing off' the tiger's armour! That was until the British Centurian tank came along.

However the tiger mark one was riddled with problems: it was unreliable, difficult to maintain and very heavy and thirsty. But when it worked it was a beauty! Tiger tank crews told of the relative comfort when sleeping in their tanks - there was enough room for all the crew. Whereas the allied tank crews had to sleep outside - usually under the tank.

A few books I have read:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tank-Killers-H ... 1932033807
This is a great read, very interesting info about the development of specific ant-tank weaponry (at least on a mobile platform).


https://www.amazon.co.uk/Men-Against-Ta ... 0715369091
This another great read detailing how anti-tank weapons were designed to be carried by infantry.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tank-Men-Rober ... 0340923490
Great personal accounts from veterans.

So, as you can see, I have read a fair deal about tanks!! haha (these are a small selection of books I've read on the subject).

ps. Sorry to hijack the thread!!

i guess you guys are right and i was wrong!!!
i did read somthing about the tiger tank in Wikipedia aand read that more off the 1350 ever builded tigers were lost through mecanical defects than in the fight it seemed to me that it was a Desaster

here is the original text:As serious disadvantages were in addition to the conventional form - without inclined armor - the complex production, its underpowering, the short range and a failure-prone technology in conjunction with a high repair requirements, which significantly limited the mobility of the tank. As a result, more vehicles were lost due to mechanical defects and self-destruction than direct enemy action. Although the strategic importance of the tiger was low due to the low production of only 1350 specimens, it is one of the most famous tanks of the war.

but after reading some more reccently i must say that, once they were ready, and in good shape, there was not much arround to conquer them.

THX for the lesson in historical war tec gents

The Title of the thread is Battlefield 5, we don't need a history lesson.

Back on topic;

Quote from the Battlefield Forum:
Hey Battlefield community! I have just received official confirmation from a friend in the EA art dev department that the new Battlefield will be called Battlefield V (The roman numeral for 5), and it will take place during World War ll, both in western Europe and the Pacific islands. I have only seen the concept art, but in it i saw soldiers of the countries of The U.S.A, Japan, Great Britain, and **** Germany. She also told me that Battlefield V will release sometime between October 19th and October 31st. She also revealed to me that the teaser trailer will be released sometime before the end of this month. I asked her about a Battlefield Royale, but she wouldn't give me any info on that. More updates are soon to come.
