 ;D  North won 'cause they had more bullets than the South had men to take 'em!  South wasn't outfought, it was out-produced!  In WWII, no Sherman tank was as good as a German King Tiger.  There just were more of them! Thank God!

Funny video, though...  ;)

Then again, looking at that other topic...   Interesting, if true, but interesting!

Trailrider.  King Tiger was actually a mediocre tank.  The Panther was the best German tank and the T34-85 russian tank better still.  But I understand your comparison
