The Treffas Wagen

Treffas Wagen
The protection that a tank offered crew on the battlefield gave tank designers some of the same ideas. More protection means a better tank. So making a tank progressively bigger became a manufacturing meme from the First World War to the Second. Germany ordered the manufacture of a prototype tank that weighed 18 tons, and had wheel 11 feet in diameter. The wheels were on either side of a box like enclosure where four crew members split the tasks up of driving, loading firing and directing. The Treffas-Wagen was built by Bremen Hansa-Lloyd Works. It had a 20mm gun and two 30 caliber machine guns. They only made one and it never saw action.
