There were plans for mobile coastal batteries (called P1000, wich carried a Bismark like turret) and mobile super-heavy self propelled artillery (P1500, wich carried a Dora 80cm gun). Both weighted respectively 1000 and 1500tons. They were to be propelled by submarine engines, and would carry a number of large caliber guns and flakvierlings for defence. Of course these projects were absurd.
:rolleyes: bigger and bigger but less and less usefull at the end of the war ... :naughty:

Take your rifle or submachine gun, as well as some grenades, and run onto the top of the tank. Open the commander's hatch, and fire a burst of ammo into the fighting compartment. Toss a grenade into the tank to turn the crew into a fine mist.
If infantry saw a lone Tiger, Panther, or JagdX in the middle of a road, they would not run in fear. They would make up a plan to overwhelm that tank and knock it out. Armor without infantry support is dead armor.
:rolleyes: soviet tactics .... they were putting little explosive to break the threads and closed all the trap of the tanks and blocked the turret then put fire under. without infantry in urban fight, a tank is dead. without speed in vast plain, arty or planes destroy it ...
