Japan knew its tanks sucked prior to beginning its war against the west. They got their heads handed to them by the Russians in 39. Their tanks did very poorly against even Russian T-26s and BTs. But yes otherwise they didn't have many real tank worthy opponents before they took on the West.

They're shooting while going full speed. The named enemy gunner was actually quite accurate near the end. She went 3 for 3 iirc

If what I saw was accurate the shot that actually took out the KV2 was a hit to the lower plate at near point blank range. I'm not surprised at all.
I'm also not surprised that no-name gunners moving at full speed in poor conditions in T34s with $#!@ tier optics were missing like that.
They, after all, do not have plot stabilizers.

Maybe, but using common sense, there was around 5 t-shits aimin at the front of the church, and that was a formation of 5 tanks, being shoted by almos 5 t-shits at the  same time, no hits? no coincidence: Aliens

Ah yes I was referring to the chase scene firing. I too am puzzled by their lack of hits when they knew the general time and the exact location where Oorai's tanks would emerge.
Aliens are to mundane a reason. Its plot armor or nothing.

Meh, I just chalked it up to a shout out of that joke about Russians always missing their first shot.

Also Japan's battlefields were not the tank friendly plains of Europe. Their tanks were expected to operate in terrain which is not well suited for big heavy tanks. The environment included the tropical jungles of SE Asia, the rice fields of China, the mountainous Japanese home islands, and sandy beaches of pacific islands. Tanks also had to be light to fit onto the limited transport capacity of the Japanese fleet.
Just a little fyi, Europe had no real good 'tank country', at least were the battles where fought. The best areas as far as I know was in Germany, at which point the german army's backbone was already broken so this possible large tank battles did not occur. (grain of salt after first sentance)

Yup, do you really need a huge tank to take out peasants wielding torches.  Japanese took the right approach.  It didn't matter how good their tanks were, they were going to lose Iwo Jima either way because they had no navy to speak of anymore.

And lets not forget about the Russian front where Autumn rains turn huge areas of the country side into swamp lands where KV, IS and Tigers have to operate in.

Battle of Kursk was the biggest tank battle, which was on the eastern front

Episode 9 is so full of united tank crew and character development.

Wow, there are so many things in Episode 9 that could only be explained by plot armor.

-Pz38t penetrating anything that Pravda had with that 37mm is quite impossible. Even if they knew weakspots (which historically the German Pak 36 crews learned of eventually) they were running at top speed.
-Everyone's accuracy was horrendous. I mean, if you have the enemy's position zoned in when you surrounded them, all you need to do is shoot the first tank that comes out of the column and block the rest of them in. Instead, we get Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy-level of incompetence.
-Strategic failure on part of Pravda. Given the awesome firepower of the KV-2, IS-2, and T-34-85, all they needed to do was put the IS-2 in front and surround them with tanks. I mean, it's 6 tanks vs nearly 10. Focus fire would easily win the battle. Also, leaving a clunky beast like the KV-2 to defend something as important as a flag tank is absolutely terrible.

*Sigh*

my pro-Russian bias is coming to bite me in the ass now. I can't even enjoy an anime whenever I see Russians with subpar performance.

In other news, another WMG is that the last battle will take place in a desert environment, since all the grounds so far seem to be a shoutout to each major theatre of war.

Quote

look at the tourment locations so far.
Saunders: Shermans open ground with forest: like normandy.
Anzio: Ittlan theamed team: rocky forested terran: like Italy.
Pravda: Russian flavored: snow.
All that's left is black forest german team and the only major european theater of world war two left is the North African Campaign, Where the tiger was deployed.
What are your opinions?

In my opinion, that Saunders-Normandy doesn't exactly match...I would have expected to see some of those infamous hedgerows if it was a shoutout to Normandy.... :Smile-hiding: Maybe instead of just Normandy, France in general?

Wow how are they going to win if numbers of Panther and Tiger tanks with their powerful long range guns gets deploy. Depend on the Tiger P ????

He tends to pop in and out of this thread , i really want to ask him to see what he knows more about the Japanese Tank Philosophy

It's been discussed elsewhere. The Japanese actually had a pretty good tank doctrine, on the rare occasions they used it, but the industrial side let it down a bit. Of all the priorities that Japanese industry had to deal with, tanks were pretty low down the list, so they never got as much material or support as, say, ships, aircraft, or even mortars, given the general opposition that Japan faced.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the final battle occur on the same battlefield that Miho's blackest day happened on.
Nothing like bringing bad juju down on the hero in their final match to make things extra stressful.

That said they've already done a partial desert match but not during the official championship.
I could see a North Africa themed final but not as likely as another forest or snow battlefield.

Only one explaination. APCR rounds.
