From reading I have done german tanks were over engineered they would put components in their tanks that would last for years. 

Russian threw their t34 production out of factories in sloppy shape. Who cares if the engine will burn out in 2 weeks the tank was built to work but throw away or be destroyed.


Americans built production line modular shermans. Part from one could literally swap out with another or easily be replaced.

Who's production method was better?

I kinda learn towards the russian but it wastes lives too.


What are your opinions?

The American manufacturing process and modular design of the Sherman kept that army rolling, and very organized repair and refurbishing depots kept that maintenance work running in top gear. Albeit total air superiority in Western Europe allowed that to happen as well, the Luftwaffe wasn't bombing tank depots on a regular basis.. 

It's actually a bit of a myth that Russian tanks are particularly T-34s were shoddily built. They were rough, and not aesthetically perfect, but their structural welds and engines were strong exactly where they needed to be. The V12 diesel was a very robust engine. 

German tanks had an excellent advantage in the defensive war they found themselves in, but over engineering particularly on the Panther and Tiger II severely limited their mobility. They were too heavy for their gearboxes, and a repair that might take a Sherman offline for a day took many days for a Panther.

You might not want to take a hit in a Sherman, but at least you had a reasonably good chance for turning and running for cover without your transmission eating itself.

Lol fixed.

I could have sworn I read something about russian tanks being rushed in production with low quality. I wonder if it was written about Leningrad or Stalingrad?

I read shermans were also built to keep the crew alive. Not hardened armour. So german shells with their high velocity would pass through. Giving the crew a chance to avoid death or more serious injury from a shell detonating inside.
