The Landkreuzer P.1000 Ratte was a German concept Super-Heavy Tank for use by Nazi Germany during World War II.
Sniper Elite III Edit
Karl Fairburne discovers the plans for the behemoth war machine and infiltrates the production facility with the intention of destroying the prototype and the facility, before it can be deployed.
After sneaking into the factory, Karl is accosted by General Vahlen at gun point. After narrowly escaping him, Karl sees the Ratte nearing the end of it's construction. Realizing that he does not have sufficient explosives to destroy the Tank, he rigs the support columns of the factory with satchel charges, intending to use the factory to destroy the tank.
- Historically, the Tank's development was scrapped in 1943, with no prototype ever being developed.
- The Ratte dwarfs any other tank in history, being three times bigger, and nine times heavier than the Maus tank (the heaviest tank in history), which was undergoing prototype testing at the end of the war.
- The turret is missing the right gun barrel.
