When it comes to super-heavy tanks, I want to introduce you to a lovely Russian euphemism we use to dismiss the concept of super-heavy tanks entirely.

'A special warhead'.

Reads: 'a nuke'.

Please don't take my advice. You will wind up in jail if you do.

What kind of moron has first drawn tanks with 4 threads, like in Halo and StarCraft? There's no conceivable reason for them to have 4 threads, it's dumb. It's 2x more threads to maintain, 2x threads to get damaged, 2x wheelbases to repair, and the ground pressure would be higher than if you just have two continuous threads :ghost:

Now, 4 threads were used in some tank projects, but they were placed very differently, with the idea of reducing ground pressure to the point of becoming Jesus Christ :ghost:

Like here, on the one and only UFO tank Object 279.
