Development Edit

The St.Type-41 was designed as a mobile bunker, tasked with locking down a large perimeter from high grounds with its 140mm cannon. The vehicle was completely impenetrable from its front and sides, with an armour thickness of 250mm on all surfaces, combined with heavy sloping. The thick armour also meant that the vehicle was extremely heavy (119 tonnes) and extremely slow as a direct result. Its open back and roof made it an easy target for flanking, so it needed at least two heavy or medium tanks to guard the flanks. Even when properly supported; the tank destroyer was vulnerable to aerial attacks and enemy artillery. It wasn't long before engineers realised that the vehicle was entirely impractical, and abandoned the project. Only three prototypes were ever built, and only one ever saw combat.
