Hahaha, you mean the V2’s that did more harm then good for Germany? Besides, the Russians were much smarter when it came to rocket technology. Maybe not smarter, but they knew how to put it to good use (Katyusha). Of course this has more to do with mircoeconomy. The V2 hardly carried a payload close enough to doing any real damage.
The Mp44 and Mp40 were great weapons
The Mp40 was not so great of a weapon. It had a tendency to jam and wasn’t very accurate. The STG44 was a good design but only 500,000 were produced and only a fraction of those actually made it to the front lines. Again this has too much to do with mircoeconomy.
Yeah, but imagine if the German Industry had the chance to produce a large number of Tiger tanks
Hahaha, by the time it took to produce one Tiger, The Russians could build 3-5 T-34’s. The Tiger tank was an inferior weapon.
The Russian Department of Weaponry made note of the vehicle’s unreliability in 1944 when it wrote:
“It is suggested to the Red Army to use such German tanks as the StuG III and Pz IV due to their reliability and the availability of spare parts. The new German Panther and Tiger can be used until they are broken down without trying to repair them. They have bad engines, transmission and suspension.”
Due to its heavy armor and heavy 88mm gun, the engine was at its limit to move the tank more than 38kmh/24mph on roads. Also, its overlapping-wheel suspension liked to clog with mud. If the mud froze, the tank would be stranded. Logistically the Tiger was a nightmare – again it was another weapon that did more harm then good. And again, the Tiger tank was a response to Russian improvements in AFV technology.
Macroeconomics was one level Germans could never hope to compete.
