Amazing, but true?

zicon 2  Amazing, but true?
I recently learned that Americans only faced Tiger 1's in France one time. I never knew that. Though many AAR's reported clashes with Tigers, they were actually facing Panzer IV's. So, if indeed true, does anyone know the one exception? You'll never guess what went up against them.

I may have to revise my half track personal ROE's? Read2

On second thought the ROE's are OK. Shocked

I'll let someone else guess. Though, the key is Americans facing Tigers in France. Helmet Rolleyes

So far the only correct answer is Ed's...who didn't answer. I'm not sure what that tells us.

It was an AA Halftrack at least, wasn't it. So no need for anyone to change their Halftrack ROEs  Propeller Hat

Excellent and funny question, Dave. I don't claim any specific knowledge about this, just googled it.

Yes, the 37mm AA with two 50 cal's. Whistle

My ROEs state that you cannot overrun heavy tanks with half tracks only. Then again my ROE's never thought about half tracks versus trains? Helmet Wink

Dave, it got members thinking? Rolling Eyes
