OOC: 6 hours ago: Aresnia was reclassified from "Inoffensive Centrist Democracy" to "Father Knows Best State".
My entire argument against that is founded on this one, magical word:
The tank's design was surpassed later in the war anyway, and like all WWII tanks it was subject to randomly breaking down for no reason at all, though less so than some of its overdesigned german counterparts.
Dear lord, the communists seem to be multiplying...
Me not commie.
It was, but the sloped armor also fundamentally changed how the Germans designed their tanks; the Panther, which is the finest tank of the war in my opinion, wouldn't look anything like it would today; there wouldn't have been the caliber and firepower increases that we saw from the Germans to defeat the Soviet plating, leading to an armor-arms race between the two sides that culminated in the Konigtiger. I think most of the engineering would have either been directed at silly wunderwaffes, or else in the direction of qualitative performance and reliability improvements to achieve an advantage there, simply because the Shermans and the Panzer IVs were reasonably well matched enough that both might see greater benefits from improving performance like mobility, target acquisition, or simple reliability, than from bolting more armor on and slapping a bigger gun in.
The other thing is that leaving Russia out of the war would mean significantly higher casualty rates for US/British pilots, since the Germans dominate the lists of flying aces, it takes going from over 350 kills to 90-odd before we finally get a Finn in there, and all the way into the 60s before we get 1 Allied ace (who was Russian). The first American shows up at 40, and all of his were against the damn Japanese!
The words People's Republic in your name determined that was a lie...
You are a socialist dictatorship. Deal with it.
If you truly cared about your people, you'd drop the socialist and just go full-fledged dictatorship.
I agree that the Panther was the best tank in the war. I also agree Britain would have lost the war in the skies almost instantly.
If Germany had had the A-bomb (which it would have, if it had had a couple extra years), it would also have had rocketry of some description. Since the war would have dragged on, we would have seen nuclear warfare and a pretty insane death toll (no, 65 million isn't insane, it's just huge). Hitler was also one of the idiots stupid enough to fire the damn things and if (I'm saying if) he had let his engineers do their jobs instead of demanding that his Ural bombers could dive-bomb (making then 3 tons heavier and thus no longer Ural bombers) he would have had a delivery mechanism from the very first bit of nuclear weapon-making. Within two years, I suspect both would have been using the now improved flying bombs to nuke each other. Europe and Ameria would lie in ruins, Russia would be irradiated just by wind, let alone fallout, Asia would be mostly okay, but with noone left to fight them, the Japanese (even if they'd nuked Japan itself, there would be tons left on the mainland. They sent millions and millions there) would start ethnically cleansing the entire population of China and Korea. We are left in a world with 3 inhabitable continents, 1 (or 2 if Russia managed to survive somehow) major superpower(s) and a lot of dead people.
We could even have had a new cold war, between Russia and Japan except this time, both parties would already have largely radioactive countries. Nothing turns a war cold more than a nuclear winter...
