What's the point of having 8,725 tanks when you can't afford the fuel for them? E

The Landkreuzer P-1000 "Ratte" (Rat) was to have been an extremely large tank for use by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was designed in 1942 by Krupp with the approval of Adolf Hitler, but the project was canceled by Albert Speer in early 1943 and none was ever completed.
The 1000 metric ton Krupp P-1000 "Ratte", started construction but was canceled before completion. It would have carried two 280 mm guns (mounted in the same type of gun turret used in Gneisenau class warships), a single 128 mm gun, eight 20 mm Flak 38 anti-aircraft guns and two 15 mm Mauser MG 151/15 guns.
The primary armament was a warship-like turret holding a pair of 280 mm naval guns. One such turret was built before the project was canceled, and was installed in a coastal defense battery in Norway.

On a personal note I find the Leopards to be amazing. However, if you see an Abrams, there may be 8,724 more behind it

correction they were lion of babylon tanks.Worse than Soviet T-62's. Check monkey model and what it means.
As they say quantity has a quality all it's own.... Now unfortunately with tanks that's not really the case. Look at the T 72 with it's horrific vulnerabilities... There's a crap ton of 'em but they still can't do jack. .
