I stumbled across this odd number of AP rounds yesterday:
The Mk I-tank could store 110 AP rounds, the MK II-tank 130 rounds (AP), a sample check of the estabs (C Squadron, 6th RTR) revealed that the tanks (1 x Mk I and 7 x Mk II) hold 1066 AP rounds, where they in fact could hold a total of 1020 AP rounds, only.
I didn't check other UK units, or Axis units yet, but according to what I've read so far, this amount is too high. So, my question is, is there a reason for this discrepancy or is it just a typo / historical inaccuracy?
