ORIGINAL: Wuffer @ SigUp Only very few PzIII were commited at Kursk as Mehring said, by the time the design was considered allready as outclassed for a main battle tank. And please include the 'kills' of Ferdinands, Tigers and Panthers, as well as StuG's and StuH's (edit: but you have a point; Kursk was _not_ a tactical soviet victory if one compare the losses..)
