Some German tanks had stronger armour at the back than at the side. If I recall correctly this applies for the Tiger Ausf. E and the Panther Ausf. D, A, G and Jagdpanther, that's just naming a few.
On aome tanks the side is weaker then the back, on others the opposite is true. The weakest? The bottem :p many bottom kills, (i love hilly terrain!)
Nothing better than firing a 76mm round into a Panther G's underside on Meuse.
I love it when a tank drives half-way up a pile of rubble to cap a flag. Beautiful at shot.:nodding:
FrederfOMG I mean that the sides seem weaker than the rear. The rear is very strong armor >.< Which I thought was not historical. I've bazooka'd tons of Stugs in the rear only to have it not kill, in the side though... BLAM nochance.
AFAIK, most early German vehicles had stronger rear than side armor (or the same) They figured the tanks would take fire from the rear from defenders after the tanks broke through.
