Anlushac11BAH! I just went outside and its dark blue with shiny spots. [/QUOTE] Isnt that what I said? "Medium red, whith some purple around the moon"??? :rolleyes: [QUOTE=Anlushac11] IMHO the Grosstraktor reminds me of the Russian T-28 and T-35 designs.

I think there was some trend to build additional turrets in the twenties and early thirties in a number of armies. I dont know, who copied from whom, but it sounds plausible to me, that ze germans copied the russians, because as a result of versaille ze germans werent allowed to build tanks and therefore did a lot of cooperation with the soviets during those "Reichswehr"-days. Both, germans and soviets, were some kind of parias to the international community which somehow drove them into cooperation despite of the totally different political systems and views. Rapallo was also a result of the "relative" international isolation of both countries. By the way, did you know, that the Bismarck in fact consisted of 100% sugar, which is the real reason, why she sunk at last? :naughty:

It was still dark blue with lighter blue around the moon.

The Germans were forbidden by the Versaille treaty from developing tanks. To hide the development and research on tanks the Russians let the Germans test and research their armored vehicles in Russia. Many pilots also trained and tested in Russia. Much of the data was shared with Russia in return for their help with Germanys problem.

Would that be cane or beets? Cane is much better for armor production, especially if its carmelized.
