    Two questions,

    Is it true that SS-Unterführer Kurt Knispel had a strong distaste for authority and is it also true that Hermann Bix took out a KV-1s with his 38t?

    Looking to buy a tank, don't know what yet, just looking for some interesting subjects....

    Maybe a tank numbered 13? :oops: :lol:

    Bix is most interesting to me because of his early war encounters with the Kv-1's. It is also good to see a Heer man get some credit when the SS seems to be the center of attention all the time. I believe when Bix encountered the Kv-1 he had to shoot holes in the barrel of it to survive the encounter.

Abt., StuG Abt. 177, StuG Abt. 189, StuG Abt. 243....
