I have so much stuff to play that I think I will put a hold on buying anything else for the foreseeable future. Unless of course it is really interesting.
What could be more interesting than forty-six Opel Blitz trucks? Are you holding out for forty-seven?

This is funny, Scott! 🤣
We all know that there is always a ton of really interesting stuff.

Just make sure your anti-viral drugs are handy. Just saying.

85 more plus the four existing counters would give you every Ferdinand committed to Kursk.

As a measure against "Oh dear," [I understand your remark, I am after your "technical" term] what is the term in use for Russian kill ratio reports (never mined Russian loss ratio reports)? I know they (Russians) were deemed decent-to-good on captured kit...

As a further aside...as I credit you will know better than I...which nation had the as best as can be accurate "kill ratio" in WW2. (Ground combat only here.)

Mmm, but that's just it. There are so many ways to kill a tank, the ratios are kind of meaningless outside of propaganda. You've got mines, anti-tank guns, aerial bombs, enemy tanks, tank destroyers, infantry close assault, demolition charges, and the old favourite, mechanical breakdown or even just lousy drivers. John Ellis does crunch a few numbers in BRUTE FORCE. I think wrongway149 probably has a good handle on tank strengths and losses or at the least knows which books are worth reading on the subject. I'd go less for German tank commanders who actually served, and more for anyone who has been able to set foot in the Russian archives in the last 20 years....
