There is no such thing as a tank that's "too well-made." Properly casted, welded and fitted, both the tiger and panther performed as well as the allied tanks. The trouble was by late 1944, a lot of the heavy industries was already dominated by slave labor, workers who had no love for the German cause. Though shoddy work or deliberate sabotage were punishable by immediate execution, workers still managed to break a few gear teeth, or mis-align rotating parts.
