German AFV canister ammo?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys and Grogs,

I remember a thread about Soviet canister ammo in the T-34. The general consensus was that the T-34 canister ammo was modeled improperly (that it was not true canister, but a timed/fused shrapnel round).

In all my readings of supposed combat actions and AARs of the Germans, I never see any mention of cansiter use in AFVs (although it's modeled in the CMBB game, like the T-34 ammo).

I've read of Panzer crews using sub-machine guns and hand grenades to repel infantry assaults, but never a mention of canister.

Should scenario designers be editing cansiter ammo out of their German AFVs (just like the T-34) while building a scenario?

Does anybody out there have a book or a report where it mentions use of canister in German AFVs?

Thanks in advance,

I don't know of any offhand, but if you contact the David Honner the site owner, he may be able to help you.
