What?? From the linked story's pics, It looks like these tanks came off a freight ship, fully assembled. I wonder how the Germans got them on the boat, they were built far inland, away from shipping. It would probably be cheaper to assemble them right on the docks. For that matter, it would probably have been cheaper to assemble them right at the Molson plant.

Anyway, it seems to me like these tanks would have been a lot cheaper to move by heavy-lift helicopters. How much did each tank weigh?

I'm guessing that at least a couple of the trailers were Goldhofers which would imply weights that even an Mi-12 would choke on.
