Name the Vehicle....

Some interesting stats I came across on a vehicle that caught my fancy. Anyone wish to take a guess?

Engine: 700HP
Engine Oil: 30 quarts
Coolant: 32 gallons
Trans Fluid: 44 quarts
Fuel tank: 140 gallons (gasoline)
mpg: 0.36 (aka ~2.8 gallons per mile)
Initial cost*: $60 million
Number built: Approx 1350.

*Cost is inflation adjusted for today's dollar (2014USD).

Sounds like a WW2 era heavy tank. Not too many gasoline engines that fit those specs.

Good guess. Engine was the Maybach HL230.

Now, anyone wish to guess which specific tank?

As much as I want to guess the Sturmtiger (a favorite "toy" to model in my wargaming community), nowhere near that number were made. Must look into other TD models... Jadgpanzers, etc.
