A little fuel on the fire from there:
"The Germans had the same kind of problems with the Panzer IV and the Panther. In fact the Panther had a bad reputation for being a fire trap partly from fuel line leaks and partly because of the nature of the transmission"

I am curious if the USSR's 57 mm was that much more accurate then the British 6 lber (57mm)! In game the T-34 has .34 dispersion while the Crusader/Black Prince/Ram and now the Grant have dispersions of 41-43. I understand the Germans having low dispersions due to optics, but the Russians? While there designs were good if not advanced they were very basic so I doubt they had the best optics. Oh and they due more damage with their 57mm kinetic rounds then the British 57mm kinetic rounds. Why is this historical, play balance or regional player base driven?
Again just wondering why the Russian premium Valentine is the Mk II with the 2 lber (47mm)? The Mk 6 with the 6 lber (57mm) was built specifically for them in Canada when the British were discontinuing production. This was the 'Russian Valentine".

Dispersion is entirely a game balance thing.
APG specifically said that the sights on T-34 were the best in the world
Which was of German origins, so same thing.

Hey Chieftain, I thought you might find this video clip interesting, if you haven't already seen it. APG footage of early TD equipment (37mm guns on jeeps and M3 motor carriages.) There is also footage of a Christie chassis being tested.
