About Panzer Killer!
As the Allied forces broke out of the Normandy beaches and the battle for France began, American tank crews soon realized what they were up against. To their dismay and horror, the American Sherman tank-crews quickly found out how inadequate and inferior their tanks were, especially against Germany's late model tanks. The Americans were out-gunned and out-armored by the far superior German tanks. The only thing the American tanks had going, was that they were faster, more maneuverable and far more reliable. The Allies had a greater number of tanks, better artillery and air superiority. German columns were constantly harassed from the air as American Thunderbolts and British Typhoons rained horror upon them.
