    Vanir Ausf B got a reaction from LukeFF in Test range: The Maxim generates the similar firepower per minute like the heavy MG42   
    This is not even remotely true. Seriously, have you even played the game?

    Perhaps, but that's a bit apples to oranges as there were a lot of 37mm, short-barrel 50mm and 2 pdr-armed tanks in North Africa. Engagement ranges in Northern Europe 1944-45 were well over that.

    German panzer iv crews were trained to open fire at 1200 meters as that is the maximum range at which their mili-radian sights allowed them to "fire for effect" without use of bracketing.


    Note: tank accuracy in CM is lower than the above numbers!

    Panthers, Tigers and Allied tanks with similar high velocity cannon could engage at even longer ranges.

    Depends on how many shots the Panthers get. At that range and against a moving target the large majority of the first shots should miss. But accuracy increases rapidly with each shot taken so if they are getting 2 or 3 shots off there is a pretty good chance of a hit.

    As for penetration, a Panther will easily penetrate a T-34 at that range except on some parts of the T-34/85 front turret.
