I fvcking love History Memes.
@Sebastos, agreed. (From their bombers) Germany like "lol, cool wall, bro".
Who would win ? The most sophisticated mechanical technology available during the 1940s (tank divisions) or a calvary unit ?
*glares at Poland
@AshburyJ, if you have enough horses you can make an impenetrable wall of horse flesh
@AshburyJ, haven't you seen BF1? Horses are tanks
@AshburyJ, "It's cavalry. Calvary is the hill where they crucified Jesus. Surprisingly, I wasn't expecting a fvcking hill to sprout legs and rush over here to help me out."
@ragnellalondite, I don't think you understood my question. Do you think a tank division (using the most sophisticated mechanical technology available during the 1940s) or do you think a calvary unit (using the most sophisticated Jesus hill technology available during the 1st century) would win ?
@AshburyJ, it is a slight misconception that Poland deployed cavalry against German tanks. While the Poles did have a large number of cavalry in their army, they mostly fought dismounted using modern infantry weapons. The horses were just used to transport the units around faster than walking. The few instances of cavalry charges were directed against German infantry, and in most cases were actually successful, hence why they continued to do them
@AshburyJ, additionally it's a bit of a stretch to call the German tanks in 1939 the most sophisticated units available. The Panzer II, main tank of the army at the time had a tiny 20mm cannon and was pretty slow. It wasn't until later in the war that the Germans developed better tanks, but even then they had design flaws that meant they were inferior to Soviet tanks.
@SilentOneEyedGoblin, cool to know ! My source was from the Apocalypse Now WW2 series I just finished watching a few days ago. They had footage of a specific charge I don't remember the name of and devestation of the men and horses afterwards but maybe I misinterpreted that they were solely against tank units. This battle was closer in the beginning of the war though so you're right about their tanks not being as unparalleled as they were towards the end of the war
Germany literally invaded France by going around it through Belgium... twice
Doesn't help when you attack the side opposite of you for no reason and literally fall for the same trick Napoleon did Hitler was not a smart man
This is absolutely hilarious, i laughed out loud
@Captain Magma, it gets better... French military experts extolled the Line as a work of genius that would deter German aggression, because it would slow an invasion force long enough for French forces to mobilize and counterattack through Belgium. Germany beat them at their own plan.
explain this to the morons who voted for Trump
Look up the Gustav Cannon. It really wasn't used much on the Maginot Line, but my gosh, if it heavily was...
So white walkers and the wall anyone?
Plus air superiority
