Armor Production Numbers

By Christian Ankerstjerne

Armor Production

German tank production was significantly impacted by Allied bombing campaigns, especially from 1943 onwards. Because of the improvements by Albert Speer to the German production system, which had not until then been changed to war production, it was possible for Germany to increase its industrial output in both 1943 and 1944.
