Turtle Tank

Continuing the theme of sketchy intel on the Soviets the CIA got from the Germans, a phantom tank appears on the Volkhov Front, completely unknown to the Soviets, but apparently common enough in German eyes to even earn a nickname.

Despite there obviously being no such tank, German experts weigh in on its rather colourful components collected on both sides of the front lines and even theorize about the improvements that could have been made to this fictional tank, even though somewhere in the report they admit that "the informant must have been a rank amateur on the question of armoured vehicles."

Read the original document to learn more about this wonder-weapon.
