[WoT] Digging Through Archives: We've Hit Them Hard

The first firing tests with King Tiger playing key role took place on September 2, 1944, it happened right where the vehicles were stopped in battle.

This King Tiger was hit near Polish town of Sandomierz. After that it was used as a testing target for artillery to try the armour.

  1. In the photo: right side of the vehicle and the gun pointing to the left.
  2. Huge dark spot is a reach-through breach made by 152mm artillery round.
Central Archive of the Russian Ministry of Defence, fund 38, inventory 11355, case N2548, p.252


  1. Zero damage crit to the radio operator, looks like to me.

  2. "We didnt even scrached them!"

  3. you show us german armor fail
    how about some of soviet's armor fail?

  4. Overlord, is it true that normalisation for sloped armor will be decreased again in 8.0?

  5. 152mm on KT: Makes a hole.

    152mm on soviet steel: Nothing to see---> Because the tank got vaporized completely.

  6. would be interesting to see how an ISU would fair against a 128mm...

  7. Overlord, yet i didnt think you are acting bias based. But when posting only pro soviets stuff made by soviets themselfs i guess i have to change my mind :/

    1. I don't think he has an equally huge reserve of Nazi wartime photos showing penetration tests on russian tanks. Do you?

    2. Aye, if someone has access to it, plz let us know, we will come to an agreement.

    3. Oh jeez....erm...i dunno....
