Favorite WWII German Tank....

I grew tired of watching “Top Ten” shows on the military channel that didnt meet my muster so I decided to choose my own favorite tanks.

Today’s tank is “My favorite German Tank” and I choose the Panzer III, the back bone of the Afrika Korps and the early blitz. The one pictured has the short 75mm but I am a fan of the Ausf J (Special) with the long barreled 5cm gun. you can have your Panthers and Tigers...I'll stick with the ol Panzer III.

You definitely have to give props to the Panzer III for its versatility and impact on the early war, but I just don't like the stubby gun. (Insert phallic jokes here.) For sheer elegant menace, I don't see how you can beat the Panther
