Yeah - WW2 uniform, funky googles and an M82(called after the year of designing - 1982) is freaky. It was btw the first american ATR, russians used some kind of ATRīs in WW2, but this was more a cannon with a bipod......WW2 tanks can be killed by a .50 HMG(and M82 uses the same ammo as this most known BMG .50 just with more power and precision)
What "Tiger Hunter"? From this Tanks bounced a lot of Sherman Ammo off... Most of them had technical defects, or they caved in, because they were too heavy. A hit from that Thing wouldnīt be heared inside the Tiger. But nice Paint and Picture!
Tiger Hunter is from a mission while or soon after D-day. Behind the shore of the Normandy were a lot of big hedges, where nothing could enter or leave the roads. And on those roads the German tanks moved. At first it was bad for the allies, but soon they began to hide and do surprise attackes with bazookas. And the nickname of it was "Tiger-Hunting".
i wondered if it was a Barret too for a sec(wtf) but i remember those other clunkers like the Boys Mk.1 and such. i wouldn't want to try it on a Tiger for damn sure. anyway very nice work, have to check out the rest of your gallery.
A .50 caliber high velocity rifle might be able to pierce the top turret armor. A tiger (pre-1944) mounted an inch of armor on the top of the turret. If you used an AP round, you might be able to pierce an inch of steel, but probably only at a range of 800 yards or closer, a difficult task, for sure.
Very true. Although the anti tank rifle could pierce early war tanks armor, the thicker they got the harder it was to take out a tank. But there were other ways of taking out a tank with the anti tank rifle.
One way was to hit key joints and spaces on the tank to make it imobile. Like the point were the turret and tank body met. Shooting there would stop the turret from turning. Then they would shoot the treads to basically render the tank useless. haha!
I'm sure you knew all this already, but once I start on a subject I tend to carry on. haha!
