As far as tank production. The Germans never established a hard tooled line for tank production like the US and Russia did. The US had 2 factories building Sherman tanks, Warren Michigan, and Lima Ohio. They were setup just like a automotive factory, building a standardized design. I read that the Sherman required 10K man hours to build, and. Tiger 300K man hours. Pictures of a German tank factory look like a job shop - a shop that builds one off stuff. And by the way, tank engines are not stamped out. They start as large castings.
