Yes, absolutely. One shot in a tank battle is enough to be the decisive factor of victory or failure.

Or, during later stages of WWII, there were accounts where a Tiger tank can knock out two Shermans with one single shell.

On the other hand, like JagdPanther noted, you simply can't reload a tank that fast, even with an autoloader.
