As a late addition to this thread, I have just tumbled across a Russian site at https://nvo.ng.ru/nvo/2016-09-23/1_manevr.html which makes the oddly specfic statement that only seven French tanks were knocked out by T-Gewehr in WW1. It also says that, considering the small number of tanks put out of action by all weapons, this was not such a bad showing.

As the writer is a retired colonel working at the Russian Academy of Science while taking a PhD in military science, so he might know what he’s talking about even though he doesn’t give any sources.

All the best,
