Ratte mk2 by flyingdebris Ratte mk2 by flyingdebris
The second part of the ww2 assignment. I looked up some crazy nazi proposed vehicle ideas and thought i'd give one of the designs my own interpretation. In this case the P-1000 ratte. A tank that would have weighed in at around 1800 tons had it ever been constructed. its turret was basically a battleship turret with only 2 barrels instead of 3.

Can you imagine being tasked with changing one of the center treads?

You'd need a dry dock.

this thing would actualy be a long range defense plattform at best ... i don't see how it ever could move even a few kilometers over oneven terrain ... let alone get over rivers
you know hitler was one crazy freak thinking out stuff like that ...
the only stuff i like to respect is the developement of the horton 9 stealthplane made by the horton brothers ... (but that's it)
i mean think about it if that thing (and the bomberversion that was in development) was manufactured soon enough it could've changed the outcome of the war ...
fortunately germany was bankrupt at the time so it didn't happen

however nice concept on the tank ...
but this thing would rather be useless ... imo

There were many other weapons which could have helped Germany win (or at least not lose) the war and most of theme were much less sophisticated than a stealth bomber.

Hitler's biggest problem was that he was obsessed with offensive weapons (the bigger, the better) and totally ignored defensive systems, such as guided surface to air missiles. It's quite difficult to develop and manufacture advanced weapons (or anything else) when your enemy is bombing your factories every night.
