Did the Wermacht and Waffen SS realy had 1,200 tanks? To me this seems far too high and highly unlikely. Andries (talk) 12:06, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

That's what it says in the sources, even if it's unlikely. Lack of fuel for the tanks was the biggest problem. Esdrasbarnevelt (talk) 12:12, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
At this stage of the war I cannot believe that the Germans had 1200 tanks available for the offensive. I would appreciate a second source for the 1200 tanks. Andries (talk) 15:19, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
We'd have to look at what Le Tissier exactly states in his work to be sure, but this page states there were 13,362 tanks (AFVs? - probably) in the German inventory in January 1945. W. B. Wilson (talk) 20:51, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
