Would Stalin consider cutting his losses and start negotiating? His allies were all dead and gone, he's still bogged down in Central Asia (?) and the Far East, and since the Allies aren't likely to go all the way to Moscow, there's a slight chance he can keep some of his earlier conquests.
Kurty my friend, not Felix Steiner. Oh no. Not at all. I'm kinda disappointed you forgot a certain paratrooper officer who has a striking resemblance to one of the best British actors of all time...
Bormann originally intended to reject this offer out of hand, but General der Fallschirmjäger Felix Steiner, the highest-ranking officer present after Dönitz was stuck in La Rochelle and the rest of the OKW had perished in Berlin, suggested, using his pistol as an encouragement, that those terms were not so bad after all, in a meeting that most people think must have been dramatic, but that Steiner later described as banal and over in less than two minutes.
Indeed. A Tiger should also be insanely over-engineered, unreliable and more should be lost to running out of fuel / breakdowns / incompetence than enemy action.Indeed. A Tiger should have its 8.8 no matter what, even thogh a long-barrelled 7.5cm-armed PZ IV can be a handful to deal with.
By "is pretty effective", I suppose you meant "should ventilate pretty much anything it hits".

Excellent news. Looking forward to it.
