Tanks and transportation

Post by StormSaint373 » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:04 pm

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?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landing_Ship,_Tank

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.

Here is a reference image

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
