Did a search for the grote tank but found just 26 results and non of them really relevant.

this is a 38 ton med prototype from 1931 which was built but development was abandoned in favor of other heavier machines like the T-35

looks ever so slightly epic though lol

That looks like low tier fun!  Would be a good addition to the game.

Looks interesting. What was its armament? From the looks of it I'd guess 45mm and 20mm, but that's a guess....

Edit: does it just look like it or is the main gun fixed and only the upper one is in turret?

Edit2: my bad. Didn't notice.

It's actually a double turret arrangement, the top turret with the 37mm Gun PS-2 is also the commanders cupola, for the game the 76.2mm Gun A-19 would be the only one used.

It looks fixed because there was a error in production which jammed the lower turret in the only prototype manufactured lol

AHHHHH you spelled it with two T's that's why it didn't come up in a search. on wiki it is spelled with 1 T as the designer was Eduard Grote, apparently both spellings are widely used

The ball looking thing on its turret would be an big weak spot
