Soviet Supertank: Osokin's Tank Cruiser
We already established that CAMD accepts some pretty crazy stuff. It's not all spherical tanks, though. Some of it is jetpacks, or tank catapults, or electrical armour. Some of it is this thing.
CAMD RF 38-11350-1356
Oh yes. It's like that crazy fake KV-VI project, except someone actually thought that this was a good idea. Someone that should know better, too. Osokin wasn't some kind of peasant, he was an Engineer-Lieutenant-Colonel. Of the VVS, though, so hopefully his airplane engineering was at least a little bit more realistic. Let's look at the statistics of his beast.
Water hazards can be crossed using attachable pontoons of the Epron type (soft or rigid).
Well, it looks like he stapled 4 T-34 model 1940s to two T-100-Zs and called it a day. Oh, also, this monster is 21.45 meters in length and 9.7 meters in width. You would think that an air force officer would be aware of what a juicy target this would represent. I guess that's what the 5 AA guns are for. The Red Army was also unimpressed with the project, and it disappeared into the archives.
Giganaut made a 3D model of this thing, and made it sillier in the only way possible.
Add some Katyusha rockets, because why not!
