I considered the MK IV as well, it was just as versatile as the M4 with a large number of variants, adaptations, upgrades and multiple roles. I put the M4 slightly ahead of it but ultimately had to go with the T34. It was the war winner in THE decisive theater, tough to argue beyond that. The MK IV and T34 get extra recognition for being able to perform without the lavish support afforded to the M4 also.

I would consider the M4 much more versatile, its turret ring allowing for the guns (moreso than the MkIV) it carried just one example. I understand what you mean by decisive theatre but there were some skirmishes going on in Africa, Italy and France as well. Oh, and that other one in th south Pacific. Thats seeing a lot of war frontage.

I wouldn't penalize the support system the US was able to provide unless you are going to also penalize Germany for being so close to their support and being able to send tanks back home for overhaul. Hell, most of the time the M4 didn't need the support.

The T-34 saw alot more action against the axis than the Sherman. In the context of value to allied cause that should mean alot. Likewise the PzIV saw more action than both. I based my winner of these top three choices on the fact that T-34 effected the outcome of more battles.

Now, this is the way the question should have been asked!

I voted for the M4 Sherman, but the T-34 would have been a close second. The Germans, of course, screwed up and lost, but on the way to losing, the Mk IV was probably the tank that helped to keep things afloat the longest for them.

So, I think this poll got things just about right.

Thanks Ogukuo, your vote for the Sherman has been recorded. I hope you enjoy the other 11 polls just as much, or more.

Hello Paul,

The M13/40M14/41M15/42 should be at position 14.
That will mean that the IS-2 should be at postition 15.

A bit sloppy of me sorry. All out of sackcloth, but still plenty of ashes.

I can see why the M4 and T-34 are neck and neck in terms of votes.

I picked the T-34, because it was available earlier in the war, it was back-bone of the Red Army tank armies, which engaged more German armor than the Allies/Shermans, and it was also produced in great #s.

The T-34 was the main tank that switched the German industry from making relatively cheap light/medium tanks suited to blitzkrieg/fast movement to the very expensive medium/heavy tanks suited primarily suited to defense.

In my opinion, building more aircraft and panzer IV tanks would have been better than producing Tigers/Panthers/Tiger II/etc. But the shocking revolutionary designs found on T-34 provoked them to go for heavy tank designs.

If I were the Germans, I would upgrade my panzer IV's to the ausf h version, but no more than that. With more planes in the air, it will take longer for the allies to maintain the air supremacy that decimated so many tanks, it also means the Germans can maintain air supremacy longer.

I was able to record your #1 vote for the T-34, giving it 30 points.

However, so I can record your secondary scores, could you please arrange the remaining tanks into the brackets I've shown here. Thanks.
Hi Exorcist,

I have arranged your placings for Value to Allied/Axis Cause as follows:

Very High (24 points) M4 Medium, Tiger I, PzKpfw IV, IS-2
Good (18 points) Matilda II, Valentine, Cromwell, PzKpfw III
Reasonable (12 points) Panther, Churchill, Somua S-35, PzKpfw 38(t)
Doubtful (6 points) Tiger II, Type 97, KV-1, M3 Medium
Poor (0 points) Crusader, Char B-1 bis, M 13/40, BT-5/7

This was just done 'donkey fashion' i.e. by putting four tanks into each of the five brackets, strictly in the order you have listed them. As it is quite possible you would wish to change some of these up or down a bracket, could you please let me know within the next 2-3 days - before the polls close. In the meantime, this is what's entered on the spreadsheet against your name for this particular poll.

Thanks,
p3485

Good (18 points) Matilda II, Valentine, Cromwell, PzKpfw III
Reasonable (12 points) Panther, Churchill, Somua S-35, PzKpfw 38(t)
Doubtful (6 points) Tiger II, Type 97, KV-1, M3 Medium
Poor (0 points) Crusader, Char B-1 bis, M 13/40, BT-5/7

This was just done 'donkey fashion' i.e. by putting four tanks into each of the five brackets, strictly in the order you have listed them. As it is quite possible you would wish to change some of these up or down a bracket, could you please let me know within the next 2-3 days - before the polls close. In the meantime, this is what's entered on the spreadsheet against your name for this particular poll.

Thanks,

Exorcist,

I am in the early stages of collating the figures and I can still accept any amendments you wish to make over this weekend, if you have particular preferences.

Also, I would like to thank you for participating in 8 of the 12 polls and providing full Level 2 scores in most of those. Regarding the 4 polls where you did not participate, I will apply the averages from the other Level 2 participants to determine your scores.
