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.

i think a land battleship like this needs more aaguns to defend it self! do you ever think of a land carrier, or even a land fleet? oh what's up with my mind!

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.

.. currently my country is "just" ruled by corrupt bastards that are nothing more then puppets to the conglomarates and banks of this shitty world .. no different with germany, france or the other countries of europe all of them fell to that capitalistic system the world itself has build up and bleeding each other out of money and ressources itīs just a matter of time until this system may implode ..

however would you have liked to live in a world where nazifascists/fanatics could decide your fate every second of the day where you were not allowed to speak even one word in public and be in constand fear that they come to your house
putting you in a car and send you somewhere to work yourself to death or kill you if your job is done or just kill you outright on arival in a gasroom with thousands of other people just because they donīt like your different origin and consider themselfes superior?

sure the current world is difficult but you still have options to build up your life .. at least in some places .. other people may have less luck with their  ammount of options ..
at least i personaly donīt have to fear beeing shot at or captured and beeing send somewhere to die as it was the case 70 years ago ..

the only thing i need to be concerned about in this day and age is to find myself a propper job to get enough money in order to live .. thatīs pretty much about it ..

But that's exactly how it was in my homeland (Czechoslovakia) from 1948 to 1989, after we were "liberated" by the Red Army and Soviet commies. 


In 1987 (only 26 years ago, the year I was born) my grandparents were interrogated by the secret police (StB, "State Security", equivalent of the German Gestapo) because an anticommunist slogan appeared on a fence next to their house. Two men in an unmarked car visited them at work and said "You're going with us".

I'm not saying that the nazi regime was good, but what replaced it was no better at its core (at least not in Czechoslovakia).

well as i said some people have more options to shape their lifes others unfortunately less ... or none at worst
itīs part of each individuals fate ..

only thing you can do is trying to make the best out of your life ..

A pity it would be useless in a fight. Hm... I wonder... am I the only one not seeing any anti infantry on that thing. Seems to me as is the most effective way to fight it would be to board it, so to speak. Blow a hole in the rear and then go in guns blazing.
That whould have been awesome!

I recreated one of those on minecraft using that work of art X3, except I put anti air guns all around, and put four sets of treads, a command center, a garage under the tank for carrier like tanks, and that's about it.

Ah this beast may have not made it into production but it has a huge legacy. So many fictional vehicles were inspired by it :)
I wouldn't mind seeing a World War II film with a "What if this tank was built" scenario :)
Even if this design did prove to be flawed if it had got off the ground and survived; I imagine people from all over the world would've came to see this thing in a museum. :D

ha hah, yaknow Wikipedia was using this as the main picture for the ratte for the longest time? only recently they added a new wierd sprite picture thats replaced it, but below it you can find a link to it.

oh, and the tank was going to wiegh 1000 tonnes, hence the name P-1000.

You should try drawing the P-1500 Monster, that'd be sweet.

Excellent Artwork, but like most Ideas of 'bigger is

those 'Mechs' everyone Draws, at least it can't

"We built an Ubber Tank, how to you want to transport it"
"just move it"
"And how many more do you want"
"As many tanks as I am losing so far"

Awesome Tank, I am baffled by the Germans need for bigger and bigger guns of which they could not produce or transport. In the end this was the fault that did them in!

Hey! Great work of art this one! ^^
But I'm here to tell you that a guy is using your picture in a youtube video. I don't know if you have given him permission but I'd thought I'd tell you anyways

Here is the link [link]
