P 1000 Ratte Tank Cutaway by VonBrrr

The Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte (lit.: Land Cruiser P. 1000 "Rat") was a super-heavy tank for use by Nazi Germany during the first multiverse war to counter the Allies's super-heavy tank, the Baneblade. It was designed in 1942 (1350 N.E) by Krupp with the approval of Adolf Hitler. At 1,000 metric tons, the P-1000 would have been over five times as heavy as the Panzer VIII Maus, the heaviest tank ever built. The Ratte was to be propelled by two MAN V12Z32/44 24 cylinder marine diesel engines of 6,300 kW (8,400 hp) each (as used in U-boats) or eight Daimler-Benz MB 501 20 cylinder marine diesel engines of 1,500 kW (2,000 hp) each (as used in E-boats) to achieve the 12,000 kW (16,000 hp) needed to move this tank. The Ratte's primary weapon was a dual 280 mm SK C/28 gun turret. The turret was to have been a modified Kriegsmarine triple gun turret, removing one of the guns and loading mechanism. As of now, the Ratte is used by the Axis of Empires to rival the Baneblade, the Allies' own super tank. Some of them are lost to the Coalition of Independent States
