While never getting past the “drawing board” due to Germany's loss of The War, plans were drawn up to augment the AV7 Tank. Also designed in 1918, The Sturmpanzer Tank was actually using design concepts that most Armies would later incorporate into their armored vehicles much later. Consisting of .55 inches of armor, the tank was to be 30 feet long, 15 feet wide and 12 feet in height. Crewed by 5 men, The Sturmpanzer would have used a 2.2 inch cannon, mounted on a “top turret” which had 360-degree rotation (a first). Front and rear mounted 8mm Machine Guns would have completed her arming. It is speculated that the vehicle would have been able to hit speeds as fast as 15 miles per houtr on roads, and 9 miles per hour in battlefield conditions.
