Stuff is always worth discussing. That’s sort of the point of forums. ๐Ÿ™‚

Perhaps we should start with a bigger picture

…and drill down into that. What’s needed is a comparable tank crew losses list. I suspect that’s going to be harder to find, but something’s bound to be in the archives somewhere. Consider also if British built tanks had better crew survivabilty (IYSWIM) than American ones. Certainly Shermans were noted for their combustibility, but British units had Shermans also. So…

As an aside, the Soviet figures are staggering, even allowing for the obsolete stuff they were fielding early in the Great Patriotic War.
