In late WWII, UK developed a huge monster as heavy as 79 tons the British A39 Tortoise Heavy Assault Tank to strike German solid fortifications. It was designed with a fixed fighting compartment and extremely thick armor. The heavy hull was supported by a torsion bar suspension system. Its incredibly powerful 94mm Gun could fire at any ground target. The Tank had an additional fully rotatable turret to strengthen firepower, while a 7.92mm MG in the front was used to shoot infantrymen. As the tank was still in its trail stage when the project was terminated following the end of war, there were only 6 vehicles produced.
