Tanks and transportation

Heavy and super heavy tanks are unable to be transported across waterways except by bridges

This makes their employment more limited.

Can this be fixed so heavy/superheavy tanks can be transported via boat?

It is called Landing ship, tank (LST).
There were many models built in USA and pretty sure some late war models were large enough to carry heavy tanks,

May b first model has 1 capacity and carries heavy tank while next era models have 2 capacity and carries super heavy tanks,

According to Wikipedia they were valuable targets but proved to b surprisingly quite sturdy, also some models could carry small scout/observation planes

Russia and Germany didn't have any because their tanks fought on mainland, so I guess the LST can b considered same for all 3 (or their transport ships carry heavy tanks which would give us and UK a disadvantage)

Well Germany did have flak platforms, that like a barge, should be able to carry havy weights.
