eehhmm...."no nation had superior tank technologie"....."a clearly supierior industrial force".....yes russia, tell that to yourself....nazi tanks were far better than russian tanks. they just were so hard outnumbered that it didnt matter and russian tanks were so simple and bad engeneered that they were cheap and fast to build.....

The t34 was superior in numbers, protection, mobility and speed compared to German tanks.  It was however underarmed with no radio.  Germans did not have superior tanks during the war they all had radios and better tactics and command structure than the allies.  This is why they were more effective.  Any minor technological superiority of the german tanks is insignificant compared to the way in which they were used.  The Germans designed new tanks with bigger guns in response to the T34 and KV1.  The KV1 was the earliest heavy tank of the era with an engine that was used (but upgraded) into the '60s.     Germanies focus on quality and not quanity without sufficient materials, time and industrial infrastructure led to these tanks arriving too late, under armed, under fueled and lacking spare parts.

A good tank that cannot function because it has no fuel is inferior to a weaker tank on paper that is ready to rock and roll.

The Germans built technically superb tanks, but never got their heads round the concept of a) a full war economy, and b) the best tank isn't always the best tank.

 

The Panther versus Sherman or T-34 is the most glaring example - technically superb, massively powerful gun, and excellent armour built by a nation under constant aerial bombardment and deprived of many essential raw materials and manpower, versus cheap, proven designs, simple to operate and maintain built by nations with almost limitless industrial resources. It's entirely academic which tank was best - there was simply more Shermans and T-34s available, in the right place, at the right time - that's all that was needed.

 

You also have to wonder how much longer the war would have continued, or indeed the eventual result, if the Germans hadn't spent so much time and effort on designing and producing V Rockets, jet fighters, assault rifles, Maus, unused Battleships, massively advanced u-boats, and everything else, and stuck with making weapons that could be produced cheaply and quickly.
