In most cases during WWII it was who saw who first.
Tell that to the poor bastards in Shermans knocked out by Panzer IVs, Panthers, and Tigers in France, Germany, and Belgium.

I'm going to have to disagree. It was all about the type of gun you had and the range penetration value of it. I mean if I was in a sherman and you were in a tiger and I spotted you from a distance with would render my gun ineffective and you spotted soon after, although I spotted who first I would most likely be the casualty. It really depends on the AFV itself.
IS-2, would in my idea definently knock out a Jagdpanther. With a 122mm gun compared to 80mm of sloped armor? Yes.

The IS2 would win this battle, AP wasnt needed to kill a crew, the effect of a 122mm gun going off next to your tank would cause some massive shaking enough to knock you out from been through arround your tank
actually im pretty sure the blast from the 122mm would create some sort of pressure and could possibly actually blow up the tank, but I might be mistaking
I didn't make it!
There were cases where the explosive charge from the 122 acually blew the turrets off Tigers. Not often mind you but it did happen.
Zvieroboy does indeed translate to Animal Hunter because it was, at the time, the only thing that could take on the Elefants, Tigers, and Panthers.
I have to ask... did the last 5 posters read any of the 2 pages before them? it was already discussed in techinal detail.
