I'm bored, so I'm going with two questions.
Which German tanks had the overlapping wheel suspension, and what was the problem with it?
The Panzer VI Tiger II had many problems. What was the main problem with it?
The Panther and the Tiger I had the overlapping wheels. Problem was if the inner wheel got damaged and needed to be removed, the 2 outer wheels adjacent had to be removed as well.
The main problem with the Tiger II was its weight. This caused problems with the steering mechanism, the drive wheel sprocket and engine overheating.
The Pather and Tiger I, the wheels were good at getting clogged with rocks and mud immobilizing them, making them useless.
The Tiger II had a horrible power to weight ratio. The engine it had was too weak to push the beast. It would get stuck in the mud and on hills, and they couldn't use another Tiger II, or other vehicle, to pull it off beacuse it was so damn heavy, thus making the tank a sitting target and the crews would then abandon it.
