Mega Tank by spacegoblin Mega Tank by spacegoblin
A super-heavy tank . It has thick armour to the front and sides . The large number of heavy turrets protect it from arial attack. The tank is fully amphibious with a float attached to the exhaust, allowing it to float above the water during river crossings. This was a vital feature as few bridges can support a 1000 ton tank.
The vehicle can also take refuge below water , relying on air tanks or drawing oxygen through the emergency tubing housed along the floated exhaust (which is dissengaged during such an opperation).
Multiple weapons include dozens of machine guns and numerouse multi purpose cannons able to fire AP or high explosive rounds.
A light tank and crewman have been included for scale.

I was looking at this, and I felt something was off, it's a good drawing overall, except for ONE little thing: the little rings in the camoflauge don't bend with the geometry of the actual tank, so it looks weird. although it could be dazzle paint (really interesting WWI camoflauge, look it up) but still, it just makes parts of the tank look flat even though they shouldn't. OTHER than that, this is an excellently drawn piece.

I do see one weakness, the exposed engine in the back. A well placed shot would disable it and also possibly destroy it if there is no armor separating the engine between the crew and ammo rooms.

That's true. It also has some vents on the side that are probably less heavily armoured than other areas. The real life land ships turned out to be impracticable at best. The Soviets were the only nation that really used them in battle and these vehicles tended to be more use as props in German propaganda films than as weapons for their Russian masters. It's still a fascinating idea for me. I often find the less effective weapons more interesting than the successful ones.

The impractical weapons of WWII were intresting. Such "Wonder Weapons" as the Maus, P.1000 Ratte, and the lesser known P.1500 Monster would've inefficient, but they would've been really amazing to see in action.

Yes-It's almost a shame they never got them built. If they had built them they would have done more harm than good to the Nazi war effort (given the amount of materials required) and it would have been quite interesting to see such monsters in real life.
