Tanker's Tuesday: They Were On Drugs!


http://www.forgedinbattle.com/product_info.php?products_id=209

I know we've talked about this one before but, the madness of this idea has
made me do a few (what if) mental scenarios.
********************************************* 
One: how many M4 Shermans or T34s would it take to kill this beast?
*********************************************
Two: What would the MTO or what other vehicles and support elements 
would attached to a Landkreuzer Ratte unit?
*********************************************
Three: How many of these things could have been built, I'd say two
maximum.
*********************************************
Four; and most important of all, why doesn't
Don already have one? ;-)

It's the Graf Spee on tracks!

Don M said...

Pretty damned close Tim!
So....when will you build
one in 1/72nd scale?

It could be it's own
Megablitz campaign!

Wonder how that would count
in Megablitz terms? Would
it be a division?

Bill said...

LOL, I don't think Tim will build one of these!

But I'd say it was a division
at least!

Ratten ... because the Maus is just tooooo small :O)

Regards, Chris

Oh, and Tim is probably already planning two!

it may be cool, but seriously that looks like the easiest tank to destroy, play dead in a hole, let it roll over you, put explosives in the tracks, let it roll past, and set the explosives off.

but that seems to be the only way to kill the damn thing. looks cool though.

Or just order up a flight of
Lancasters with 12,000-pound (5,400-kg) “Tallboy” bombs....that should sort it...)
