Ww2 Gear

Posted in World War by admin on May 1, 2011

Why did Italian engineers design tanks with 4 reverse gears, and only one forward gear in WW2?

I've heard from numerous sources that Italian tanks were designed with 4 reverse gears and one forward gear in the second world war, where the tanks of all other axis and allied nations had more forward than reverse gears. Was there any tactical advantage to this?

So that they could retreat faster when they got into battle with us, of course.

Thank you, Mr. "West Side". It looks like we're the only two here with a sense of humor.
