German Tank Arrivals in North Africa

Many thanks to user nmao on the AHF for putting all this information together in this thread. I have turned this into a more readable Excel table, and done some calculations and added some notes to the information. Hope people find this of interest. Sorry if the table is a bit difficult to read, but you can easily copy it out into Word or Excel and work with it.
