which tank was better, the panzer or the sherman in WWII?

"Better" isn't an ideal word but which tank was the most effective. Please add the best variations of each and just in general, which one was most effective. Thanks!

"Panzer" is a generic term which in German roughly translates to "tank". It does not desribe a specific tank. However, in these situations I find that the person is usually referring to the German Panther medium tank which caused a considerable amount of concern to the western allies from June 1944 through the end of the war and the Soviet's concern about a year longer.

Many "experten" will instantly and loudly proclaim the Panther as the best tank of the war, and they have a good case on the face of it. In the key area's of firepower, mobility and protection the Panther looks pretty good.

I am not one of those guys.

In fact, I think the Panther was one of the worst tanks of the war, completely unsuitable to wartime use and production and going with it helped cost Germany the war. Here's why. The Panther was, in spite of German attempts at increasing production efficiency absolutely unsuited to mass production. The German's quite litterally needed to have 4,000 to 5,000 of these in service simultaneously to bring their Panzer divisions - the offensive arm of the Wehrmacht - at something like full stregth. Instead there were never more than 500 in service on the Eastern front at any given time and the numbers peaked at just 600 in the west, spread all over the France, Belgium and the Netherland's. Secondly, those in service proved highly unreliable. When it was introduced the Panther had an availability rate of just 3% (3 out of 100 working and ready to fight). Later this appalling number improved to a merely pathetic 30%. Part of this wasn't the tanks fault - there were often no spare parts with which to make repairs - but a lot of it was. The tank was mechanically fragile and difficult to maintain and repair in the field. Most work had to be done at depot level. The consequence of all this is that Panzer divisions that should have had 200 tanks often went into action with as few as 50 or less and then fewer than half of those would be Panthers.

The M4 Medium Tank (only the Brits called it the Sherman during the war) was a superb tank when it was introduced in mid-1942, perfectly suited to American armored doctrine even though it the design was a bit of a rush job. Mobility was excellent, armor was adequate for the primary threat of the day (the 37mm infantry anti-tank gun) and firepower - an adapted French 75mm field gun - was nearly ideal for the exploitation role of the American tank. To boot the M4 could be built in massive numbers in a wide array of variations and was easy to operate and maintain in the field. This meant American armored divisions and GHQ tank battalions could enjoy an 80% availability rate on their tanks and had sufficient numbers that they could almost invariably operate at 80-90% of full strenght - and 200+ good tanks have more offensive power than 50 excellent tanks no matter how you slice it.

Here's the rub. The pro-Panther crowd will always talk about how a Panther could kill 5 Sherman's or 10 Sherman's or whatever number they pull out of the hindquarters for every Panther killed by a Sherman.

So what?

A tanks primary job is not in fact to fight other tanks. Many tank crews went through the entire war without ever firing at or being fired on by an enemy tank. This was especially true when it came to Panther's and M4's

In short while the Panther had a more powerful gun, thicker frontal armor and better off-road mobility - the trifecta of tank performance - the M4 was a war-winning tank. The Panther wasn't and was never going to be.


Radio Controlled Tanks: It’s Fun to Be At War

Radio Controlled Tanks (RC tanks) are models based on war tanks, steerable with the use of radio controls. How do these lovelies work? Well, there are three elements involved: the transmitter, the receiver and the servo. The transmitter is the controller which can be in the form of triggers, control sticks, dials or switches which the user operates with. The receiver is mounted in the RC tank model and receives and processes the signal that comes from the transmitter. The signals are then sent to the servos. The number of servos in a model is a factor that determines the number of channels, the radio must have.

 

Radio controlled toy tanks have simplified circuits, which means that the receiver and the servos are integrated into one circuit.  So you will not be able to take one toy circuit and put into the other toy tank. These lovely models have invited the fancy of many and they are now one of the preferred toys for kids today.  The realistic design, attention to detail and features are a decisive factor when one shops for these toys. Kids these days love ‘real toys,’ and they prefer RC tanks have the right camouflage, caterpillar tracks and the turret.

 

Radio Controlled tanks can come in sizes from as small as 1/24th scale to as big as 1/8th scale that can be simply stated as enormous. Though low cost tanks are good enough, the ones with size 1:16 are more realistic. Tamiya and Heng Long are reputed manufacturers of radio controller tanks with the former manufacturing the big sized versions like Leopard 2 while Heng Long manufactures quality entry level radio tanks. Pershing, Sherman and Abrams are popular models of RC tanks from Heng Long. If you go for a 1:16 Radio Controlled Tank, you will be able to get a model that is closest possible to the actual war tank in terms of the metal tracks, gear box, turret and two motor systems making it easy for the toy vehicle climb objects and hills too.

 

While buying, people pay attention to things like engine sound, machine gun sound, the built-in smoke generator, the simulative motor-start up and the cannon ball sound. So it is equally important for Radio Controlled Tanks to have auditory appeal than just mere visual appeal. The remote controlled airsoft tank on a good model will have a range of more than 80 feet and a capacity to shoot more than 40 pellets. With smoke generators to create cover under heavy fire, realistic sound effects and the propensity of these wonders to shoot back, these toys can make you look different from other toy enthusiasts in your neighborhood. And if they do own RC tanks too, you can even invite them to a tank fight. The remote controller has variable frequencies so that you can adjust the speed as you go all out on a tank fight. Enjoy the prowess and ability of these wonderful Radio Controlled Tanks and be the envy of your neighborhood.
