I am just curious. There are stage awards of famous tankers. I am just curious as to why there is not one for Michael Wittmann? I mean he was awarded for having 117 tank kills before the events of Normandy and during the Normandy invasion he destroyed 14 tanks, 15 personnel carriers and 2 anti-tank guns in the span of fifteen minutes. Is this because he was a  Hauptsturmführer in the 1st SS Leibstandarte or they consider him not as good as the others.

There used to be a Michael Wittmann award then they replaced it with Bolter, simply because Wittmann was part of the Waffen SS and the SS did some serious war crimes during WW2. (Although there is literally 0 proof that Wittmann was involved in any war crimes like a lot of SS troops.)
