Well, some kind of movement (except for toppling over) would be nice and helpful, I think...?

"Normal" KV-2 had already difficulties in moving around.  :banghead:  And I think the axles to the external running gear would bend from the weight in such a contraption.  ;D Even unobtanium has its limits!
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I'm kinda contemplating a comedy diorama based on the Triple-KV-2: Pegasus make a very reasonably priced kit that has two hulls, two KV-1 turrets and two KV-2 turrets in each box. That means that with just the one box, you could make a tank with two KV-2 turrets, one KV-1 turret and four tracks. I have something else in mind however... ;) :wacko:

I imagine the turning radius is measured in counties.
USS New Jersey, BB-62, Vietnam
USS Neshanic, AO 71, out of Lindberg Neches and a WHOLE lot of extra details
And several other vessels named after NJ, locations and battles herein, and people herefrom

It never strays far from RR tracks as it takes a twenty car train to keep it resupplied with ammunition, fuel and food for the crew.

To say nothing of the Anti-Air company assigned to each KV-6 platoon (flotilla?)

Im just imagining these sort of vehicles forming lines on the steppes opposite each other and blasting away like battleships on the ocean.

I could see one of those Kawasaki P-1's with this set up for a CAEW for the RAF.

This is a Gulfstream G550 CAEW which has a phased array antenna back and front and on the sides which alternate each scanner about 20 times a second to give a 360 degree coverage.  Much less 'draggy' than any of those P-1 setups

It's not exactly the prettiest looking ship in it's normal all over grey, but like that................. :(
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
