About the E-100 – German Super Heavy Tank:

Found by the 751st Field Artillery Battalion of the American forces in April 1945, the only partially completed E-100 was taken by the British Army for evaluation and then scrapped in the 1950s. According to the blueprints, the tank would be armed with a 150 mm gun and a 75 mm gun. The design had removable side skirts and narrow transport tracks to make rail transport more viable. This design was very similar to the original 'Tiger-Maus' proposal but had larger 900 mm (35 in) diameter road wheels and a new spring-based suspension rather than the original torsion bars. A new turret was designed, intended to be simpler and lighter than the Maus turret. However, many sources suggest that a Maus turret could’ve been mounted as well.

Additional information about this Brickmania® custom building kit:

You won’t find any partially complete chassis here! The massive E-100 kit allows one to visualize what a tank of this magnitude might’ve looked like had it been battle ready before the end of WWII. Play features include a pair of technic pins (one at the top and one at the rear) that allow you to elevate the main gun and rotate the turret respectively. There’s an opening rear hatch, removable top hatches, custom tanker minifig, and a brand-new custom 3D printed muzzle brake. Printed details include road wheels, turret markings, serial number, rivets, turret hatches, and exhaust. The stickers allow you to customize the model between four different E-100s.
