Der Stier von Scapa Flow (The Bull of Scapa Flow)


Ok, which tank had the second thickest armour in WW2?

Tanks only - and those accepted to service only (so no Maus!)

Tiger 2 has the thickest armour (180mm). So who is second?

If you need a clue, see if you can spot a theme with my other questions... ;)

Nope. JS-2 has a max of 120mm, which was suprisingly common with several other tanks having the same.

Close enough, your quiz.

Actually, War Plan White was to deal with internal unrest in the United States. But you're still stuck with the quiz.

That's the first time I have been right when I was wrong!
