    The Mulus Tractor Crawler, 1936. Combination tracked vehicles that could adapt on road wheels to travel normally on roads (thus removing the need for overland transport) was a popular idea in the 1930's, and though Germany was forbidden from testing it for military purposes under the Treaty of Versailles, they were able to explore it's applications for farm tractors- surely it wasn't testing for the future Panzer operations... Ultimately, the Germans (along with every other country that tested the idea) found the complexity of the system and the inherent reliability issues facing a machine that had to do so many things overshadowed any benefit from it's "convertible" nature.The Mulus Tractor Crawler, 1936.

    A few FT17s tanks at Dunkirk, 1940. Frnace had plenty of FT-17 tanks in reserve at the onset of World War Two, but they were hopelessly obsolete by then. All the same, they could tow heavy loads, cross obstacles, and had limited protection from small arms fire, so they were pulled out to fight all the same.

    A painting of the Nubaufahrzeug VI, the last upgrade to the German prototype "heavy" Panzer. The Nubaufahrzeug series had been developed shortly before World War Two in Russia to skirt international sanctions, and were based on the popular designs of the time; featuring multiple-turreted vehicles like the British Vickers Medium Mk. III, Russian T-28 and T-35 tanks, and though somewhat smaller, the Vickers E-series of tanks. The Nubaufahrzeugs didn't see any meaningful action- instead serving in occupied Norway as a show-of-force weapon against the essentially disarmed Norwegian population. The Norwegians cut the Nubaufahrzeugs to bits after the war.A painting of the Nubaufahrzeug VI, the last upgrade to the German prototype "heavy" Panzer.

    The utterly insane Praying Mantis AFV, essentially a hydraulic-powered lifting tower designed to spray machine gun fire over walls. What were the British thinking.

    An artist's depiction of what a German Tiger II might look like today if the Germans, much like the Soviets and Americans after the war, had continuously upgraded their old weapons for use in future wars up to the present day.
