Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by jonwilly, Sep 5, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Gents I know the T34/85 led the N.Korean advance and that the US deployed Shermans to 'combat' the menace.
    Did they ever join in combat and which tank was considered superior ?
    john
    Is it true that Centurions where issued "Canister' rounds and where these ever used to 'Clean' enemy troops off outside of fellow Cents ?
     
  2. There were 119 Tank Vs. Tank encounters in Korea by US, North Korean/PRC forces. 104 US Army / 15 USMC.

    M26/46 Series make half these numbers. M4A3, 76(W)HVSS destroyed 49 T-34/85s for 20 M4A3's destroyed(and there may be some M-24 Chafees in that number- Chafees in general Lost most engagements with T-34's)

    At least 1 Centurion took out a Captured Cromwell at long range in 1951
