Amazing work.
I seen 1 of these in England lying flat on the ground and they truly are impressive.
Not to mention the Tank museums monsters .
This is the flipping tank that puts style into design.

Just a question/observation the picture of the turret shows the barrel with a threaded
short stub, were the king tiger, panther and other very long barrels in two pieces?
