    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    I reread Beevor's Crete and it seems the German 5th Panzer Div. was able to land a small number of tanks apparently but he only briefly mentions it and doesn't specify which tanks the German...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    I agree. Rick Atkinson gives numerous examples of Italian troops putting up spirited, even bitter resistance to U.S. troops in Italy. He recounts instances in the mountains where the Allied...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    The answer came in last nights reading - I think Beevor is referring to Italian tanks and tankettes that were delivered via an unopposed landing at Sitia performed Il Duce style (after an enemy was...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    I don't see how they could have. AFAIK, the Ju-52 Junkers was the only widely available transport and I doubt it could carry a panzer. And there was an effort by the Kriegsmarine and Italian Navy...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    I would agree. The only other possibility I think is perhaps the Germans put some captured/abandoned 'beutepanzers' back into service. But it seems the Commonwealth forces were pretty good about...

    They wouldn't have been the first choice against the Matildas, but certainly they did knock out some light tanks...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    There were several Matildas on Crete, maybe around a dozen. I believe Freyberg's aim was to station at least two tanks at each major strategic target of the Germans (i.e. airbases). Typically, they...

    Re: The Matilda, queen of the desert.

    I'm reading Antony Beevor's Crete and will have some comments on the Matildas and their overall mixed performance on the island. So I'm returning this thread to active duty...

    This is an excellent picture showing the scale of the Matilda, and how small it was relatively speaking considering its thick armor. Unfortunately, this meant the turret was it Achilles Heal as a...

    Besides, by that point, it really needed a 17.2-pounder/77mm gun. Then it would have been quite a...

    It's a pity that they never could figure out how to mount a significantly larger gun in the Matilda. I believe the turret was too small, and redesigning the tank was too cumbersome.

    I once read of a Matilda attack during the battle of France in which the tanks thick armour caused the German troops to briefly be routed. But there were too few Matildas, and British infantry, to...
