Nazi Scientist: “Mein Fuhrer! Ve have discovered how to split ze atom! Ve could potentially put one of zese ‘Atomic’ bombs upon one of your V2 rockets, und ze Allies vould stand no chance against your might!”
Hitler: *“NEIN! I say ve must build a tank zat is 12 meters tall and can crush buildings!! Who cares about ze mechanical and strategic impossibilities zat it would present its self with, I VANT IT NOW!”
“Und it vould look a little something like this…”*
Yes the P-1000 “Ratte” was the German’s failed idea of a “Supertank” This tank was to have 2 naval guns mounted onto it. Why? Because Hitler wanted it.
Of course this presented all sorts of flaws such as, “How will we protect it from bombers” “What if artillery starts firing on it” and of course “How the hell are we supposed to make this thing run anyway?”
Still, it was a big fucking tank, and I was hoping someone could make a model of it! If possible, with a ragdoll’d turret and guns, but if not I would be happy with the model anyway.
Here are some more pictures for how large it should be, and what kind of weaponry it had on it.
