Turns out I already posted this some time ago:
Biggest gun battle ever
Who would win in a fight between the Ratte and the Landkruzer P. 1500 Monster? The battle will take place on a clear day, both sides are equally trained, fuel and ammunition are fully stocked on both sides, and the battle will take place on flat land.
So who will win? Thank you!

@superbattleshipyamato In a war situation, the Ratte’s long-barreled weapons would have an advantage over the monster tank. The monster, on the other hand, is not so good at straight firing, but if it can find its target, it will be able to kill it. The Ratte’s biggest advantage is its low profile. Because of that, it can get close to the monster tank without being noticed. However, the monster has a very short barrel on its main weapon.
The Ratte, on the other hand, is not too good in long-range fights because of its slow speed and lack of a rotating turret. In a real battle in a more complicated environment, the two tanks would be much closer together than in a mock battle. In an equal situation (flat land with no buildings nearby), the monster tank would likely win because of its superior power and speed. If both tanks needed to make movements on their own (in an environment with buildings), the monster tank would win.
Thank you for responding!
The Monster was not a tank-it was a planned self propelled gun, with the main gun being the Schver Gustav, the largest artillery piece ever, requiring 2000 people to use. It was only ever used as a railway gun. The Monster would have allowed it to move anywhere. This is why I did not put “tank” in the title.
Your post was awesome! Keep up the good work!
