Nazi made the biggest discoveries in the 20th century. Most of military tech is still based on their work.
No they didn't.
German tanks weren't any better than Soviet or American tanks... they just used better tactics initially, but everyone learned those new tactics eventually which is when they started to lose.
Most Nazi technology was rubbish and cost them more than it gained.
Pretty much all the biggest brains in science were from Europe (Einstein, Tesla, Newton...).
If they had been born in Africa or South America they would still have been just as smart, but lack of access or recognition would have limited their potential.
Any guy that has a scientist diploma will tell you that.
A western educated person will tell you white europeans are smarter but only because white europeans are arrogant self centred racists.
For all their wonderful invention they have done more to damage the world than anyone else in history.
Just the exemple of Chess game shows you that russians are not at the level of soviets anymore.
Playing chess does not pay the bills... and computers are better at that mundane shit anyway.
Let's be clear I'm not saying they don't have smart people. I'm just saying that europeans have contributed much more to sciences than russians and they are very well able to design an EW system.
Except the west does not develop weapons and systems for war... they make them for peace time and for imperialism... they were more interested in machine gunning blacks so they could steal their resources, so WWI was actually a surprise. It is one thing to fire machine guns at pygmies armed with grass and sharpened fruit... it is completely another when several million German soldiers armed with machine guns and artillery every bit as good as yours stepped in to view... but you just kept marching your troops forward into the bullets... it is OK... they are all dead... our artillery has killed them... you know when they fire artillery at your positions you take cover and wait for the shelling to stop and then go man your machine guns and wait for them to march towards you... you are so smart and intelligent that you don't think they do the same when you shell their positions...
Jet engines for aircraft, ballistic missiles, guided anti ship missiles, crypted machine (enigma) for communication, blitz krieg, nuclear power...
Most countries were already working on jet engines for aircraft and also ballistic missiles. Encryption was not new then either and many countries had their own version of Blitzkreig including the Soviets and the British.... and when did the nazis ever have nuclear power?
And many more are still the basis for modern military tech.
None of which was uniquely invented by the Nazis.
Today it's hard to compete with US budget so a lot go there. But european scientists are still very good. Much more publications than russians.
Publications... that is what you are basing it on.
Without the help of US and winter soviets would have lost.
By the time US help had arrived they had already survived the most difficult period... if only there were some europeans who could use their superior brain power and put up a real fight... but there were none.
Thry couldn't compete with german war production, more advanced technology and tactics.
There was not a single piece of technology the Germans had that was superior to Soviet equipment that could operate in the field.
Nazi were fighting alone against UK, US and USSR at the same time.
The Nazis were fighting the Soviets... the UK did fuck all and the rest of europe immediately surrendered.... and the US fought the nazis in Africa... not much use at all.
Do it yourself. US shiped lot of stuff like thousands of planes and tanks but most importantly raw materials.
None of which arrived before the Soviets stopped the Germans at the gates of Moscow in December 1941.
And that material was SOLD to the Soviets... none of it was free.
USSR lost 25 millions people during that war.
The Germans brutally genocided about 18 million civilians... the soldiers lost on both sides was similar... about 10 million each.
Germany much stronger than them on 1 vs 1 basis and they were very close to create nuclear bombs. Soviets needed on the other hand to wait for US traitors to give them nuks.
Germany was no where near nuclear bombs and had no heavy planes to deliver anything that could be made bomb like.
You say Soviet could compete alone against Nazi when it wasn't the case and I showed you numbers and facts about that.
Russia can obliterate Germany with both its hands tied behind its back.
I never said they were powerless without US. I said they helped and the winter helped but they still lost 25 million people.
If the US wants credit they should have launched D day in 1942 when it might have made a difference instead of being a mad scramble to get to Germany before the Soviets did.
Now take out the US help of tens of thousands of aircraft and tanks and also the shipements of raw materials that helped build soviet stuff and also imagine germans were fighting only USSR on one front and not half of the world then IMO they would have won against soviets.
Obsolete planes and tanks that were awful, yet had to be paid for, if the Soviets had lost then the UK would be gone and the US too because beating the Soviets would have allowed Japan to get access to more resources with their new soviet allies...
All the Germans had to do was take Moscow... you know... like that French midget did... we know how that worked out don't we?
Blame the winter all you want but cold weather is cold weather and both sides have to deal with that... was the weather particularly warm in Vietnam when the French left and then the Americans left?
