This has been a very informative thread. It has helped me to understand the Superior Armor special rule.
For example: An unscathed Allied Soviet T-34/76 with a Defense of 5/5, would only take a double hit from a single shot, if there were 7 success dice (with a result of 4+) on the first roll.
However, if the Axis player, ganged-up on the T34/76 with a minimum of 3 units, that could inflict at least 5 successes per unit, the T34/76 could potentially be eliminated in the casualty phase, of the turn of multiple attacks.
Superior Armor does have its benefits.Â
