Sure, the German offensive was stopped, however the German's 5th and SS panzer divisions recovered quite successfully and truly lost very few tanks, having just about a little under the same amount of tanks they started with after minor repairs.

You're arguing strategy and tactics now, this battle speaks nothing about the capability of the T-34 tank. Other than that they were expendable piles of riveted junk that was thrown at the German offensive carelessly. If anything, it speaks volumes about the engineering behind German tanks that so many survived to fight another day. That being said, as it stated - up until the 17th of July, the Germans had the battle in their favor.

Continuing on if you read, historians debate as to whether or not the battle bore any significance on the overall outcome of the Battle of Kursk. Which in reality, it didn't, it was merely a glorified "epic" tank battle that took place. A German offensive was halted, but the Germans were not sent running for the hills by any means.

Which...was ultimately a tactical German victory for all intents and purposes.

Soviets got fucking destroyed and the battle itself was relatively speaking, negligible to both sides. Like...what are you arguing at this point?
User avatar #19 - shameonapony (12/08/2014) [-]
Destroyed the German offensive in the area. It was a 'strategic German victory' because they lost so many tanks. The Russians obliterated an offensive and stopped the Germans in their tracks. The Russians could afford to lose vehicles because the German Panzers were so much fewer in numbers and so much more expensive and powerful that the Russian guardsmen could lose something like 12 tanks to every Panzer.

That's a lot of tanks.

Voctory for the Russian forces, they saved their country, so... Yeah.

I'd say early Soviet invasion the Germans handled T-34 tanks well.

Post-Stalingrad after the Germans began retreating west, Germany used propaganda to over-extend as to how good T-34 tanks were - being the answer as to why Germany was losing. The reality is the Germans just kept retreating west not because of the T-34's superiority, but a crushed army division after the major stagnated defeat at Stalingrad, which was caused by an insurgency of Soviets.

Simply put...the Germans were running out of supplies, perhaps if the 6th army moved east and captured the oil fields first for a guaranteed supply line, they would have kept pushing past Stalingrad and continued to take out more tanks.

Mechanically speaking, German tanks were just better. The really only main advantage the Soviets had was numbers. T-34s were basically lumpy broken riveted together junk that was mass produced and sent out in the fields (which mind you also had poor performance on in comparison to roads,)...the issue is, a single panzer can't shoot at 10 tanks at once.

T-34 had its own set of problems too though.

Mostly being lack of internal space due to the sloped design of the tank's armor, which almost all the time lead to over half of the crews death. It was a death trap.

The armor was very well hardened but it often lead to spalling.

The transmission was also a rough horse and very hard to operate causing quick fatigue on the driver. The study ‘Engineering analysis of the Russian T34/85 tank’ says (4):
'There is rough steering due to the use of clutch and brake steering control and difficulty in shifting due to the use of a spur gear clash-shift transmission and multi-disc dry-clutch, making driving this tank a difficult and very fatiguing job.’

Most war time tanks lacked a radio, except for the commander's tank.

Throughout 1941-1942 primarily, and also extended into about 1944, T-34s would often breakdown in need of transmission replacement many times, That being said, the majority of armored losses on the Soviet side were due to malfunction, rather than combat.

Plus I think there were several instances of the chassis just cracking and/or literally falling separate from the rest of the tank.

It can be argued, yeah, they weren't great, but the point is that they were far more useful and influential. They were fast, light, and could be made in such extraordinary speed and low cost.

They met German tanks on the field and beat them, that's what matters in the end.

In War Thunder the Russians are suffering heavily because of how outclassed they are.
Until you get IS-3's, IS-4's and T-54's though.

However I do like the Russian tanks a lot myself.

Russians as a whole aren't suffering horribly
Tier1-2 is mostly balanced with some power struggle but both nations have a tank that does good
Tier 3 is fucking annoying because of the Tiger H1 being spammed
After that though like you said it's Russians stomping
User avatar #29 - satrenkotheone (12/08/2014) [-]
Tier 3-4 is where the Russians are getting stomped.

Tier 2 isn't too bad but Tier 1 is Russia OP with T-50, T-34 Prototype and stuff like that.

T-44... my beloved tank is just so damn useless in War Thunder...
User avatar #31 - gggeee (12/08/2014) [-]
I wholeheartedly disagree seeing as how Russia is better than Germany at T IV because of the IS-2s 122mm cannon penetrates all and anything without problem, the Tiger H1 that Gaijin buffed for some reason doesn't really stand a chance against anything larger than the Russian 85, the 100mm on the SU-100 is a damn rail gun stronger than the short 88 and the 122 shell is a god damned wrecking ball.
Also if you think the T-44 is useless the only remedy is to get good. That thing is more of a rally car than the damn BT-7 And soon to be BT-5 , play it as such and you'll see more kills per game
User avatar #32 - satrenkotheone (12/08/2014) [-]
Only problem with the 122mm guns is the reload, which is making it an inviting target for the Tiger 2. As well as the weaker armour on the turret of the IS-2.

I don't know what gamemodes you play, but on realistic it doesn't go any faster than the Germans can turn their turret around to shoot me.

What does that mean? Like Wehrmacht?

I don't even like the Germans, I'm a Russian, I am just capable of understanding that the Sherman was a bad combat tank, it was good at everything except for fighting. The things were nicknamed 'Ronson Lighters' because their motto was "Lights the first time, every time" because of how much the Sherman caught fire.

Shitty tank, shitty gun, shitty armor. Good ad clearing mines and carrying troops and supplies, that's it.

You want a good tank, look T-34, KV-1, IS-3, SU-100, etc, etc

Sure the Sherman looks cool, but it's just so bad, honest.
