ⓘ Panzer VII Lowe

The Panzerkampfwagen VII Lowe was a design for a super-heavy tank created by Krupp for the German government during World War II. The project, initially code-named VK 70.01, never left the drawing board, and was dropped in 5–6 March 1942, in favor of Porsches heavier Panzer VIII Maus.
