This thing again, it won't happen, even more because of the demanding, but mostly and more importantly, because this isn't World of war-Trains.

The concept vehicle only worked in its sub sections on a train based chassis, where it didn't risk snapping, and could at least go around curves.

The tracked version would never have been able to turn much at all without throwing or snapping a track - as they are so very long and the distance between the tracks is so very very small for the track length that a WW1 MkIV tank would turn better and quicker, or even a Drednought class battleship.

Also the tracks together would likely weigh 30% to 45% of the vehicles mass with wheels and idler friction factored into it with the weight of the tracks themselves, with less than 1200hp output from the gearboxes, let alone the weight of the tanks itself, and unless its is only snooker flat land, it wouldn't be able to travel faster than a snail even with a whole infantry battalion pushing &pulling it around obstacles. ..certainly you would need at least a battalion to fix a track if it broke, as all those links, would make one (mega) track close to say for arguments sake, 8000kg.

Sorry, as a joke this is funny, as a matter of even WG sometimes dubious nod to realism, it's most likely to be a no from them too.

P.S. And that's ignoring the black and white clearly photoshoped picture of 3 KV chassis being badly pasted together with T28/T35 orT36 styled upper decking & turrets, where the origin of this fake 'modellers' idea came from initially fo a proposed stretched T36 I believe, and that was only successful when mounted on a train.
