The Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte (lit.: Land Cruiser P. 1000 "Rat") was a design for a huge tank for use by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was designed in 1942 by Krupp with the approval of Adolf Hitler, but the project was canceled by Albert Speer in early 1943 and no tank was ever completed. At 1,000 metric tons, the P-1000 would have been over five times as heavy as the Panzer VIII Maus, the largest tank ever built.

Special thanks to Matthew Sylvan for his awesome AA guns.
WOW, i have searched so long for a good lego creation of the P.1000, that's so.... COOL. Can you e-mail me the LDD-File to firstname.lastname@example.org please? That would be very great! Sorry for my bad English...
This is a marvel of LEGO design. I mean I've made some pretty large stuff (but I destroyed over half of them) but this is just... wow. Would you consider posting the LDD file or building instructions to this page?
I thing i found two vehicales that can almost reach the hieght, width, and length. Both vehicales are M-212 Titan and M-213 Cronos, they are very big, Please check them out ( Cronos is in Unit Pack 1).
I remember reading about this somewhere! There were fears that it would easily get stuck when in terrain. It would have been an awesome opponent if they had sent some to the battlefield! As always with you excellently built :-)
You know if you take the axis of evil away from the nazi empire, your left with some of the most brilliant engineers, scientists, and inventors the world has ever known. They created things that were so far ahead of their time. They were the first to make planes that used jet power vs propeller. They created a stealth bomber, that did hide itself from enemy radar. (In the 1930'-1940's). And many other weapons of war,like this behemoth of a tank...which would have been unmatched on the battlefield, maybe even today. Great build. I would love to see this made. ~cheers
