WW2 Tank Size Comparison Chart by Sanity-X WW2 Tank Size Comparison Chart by Sanity-X
I was doing some research for my Cartoon Character Design class (I'm cartoonifying tanks! XD) and I needed some way to see the differences in size between the different types of tanks. Thing is, I couldn't find any online!! (Either that, or I'm really not that good at net sourcing lol)

Anyway, here's what I've managed to put together with the resources from and I think this should be preeetty accurate... If anyone notices anything ackward do
tell me lol~

Well, heres hoping this helps you as much as it helped me~

The scale on this chart is compatible to my Modern tank size chart, so you can cross reference between the two if you feel so inclined. ^_^

Modern Tank Comparison Chart -…


=Version 1 (2006)=
Original chart created for Treadhead project, due to the lack of similar charts online at the time.…

- Klimenti Voroshilov-2
- M4 Sherman
- PzKpfw VI Ausf E Tiger
- Cruiser Mk VI, Crusader II
- Type 97 Chi-Ha
-Carro Armato M13/40

=Version 2 (2006)=
Continuation of my curiosity with World War 2 tanks, spurred on by my introduction to Flames of War.

- Infantry Mk III, Valentine Mk I
- Semovente 90/53
- T-34/76B, obr 1941
- BT-7, obr 1936
- PzKpfw IV Ausf E
- Klimenti Voroshilov-1
- Renault R-35
- PzKpfw VI Ausf B Konigstiger

=Version 3 (2006)=
Spurred on by my own interests, along with the overwhelming interests of like-minded netizens, expanded the chart further. Added a sports car and 2 modern tanks, to give us an idea of how large tanks are in comparison with contemporary machines we may be familiar with.

Also added nation tags, to aid in the recognition of these vehicles origins.

- Nissan Skyline BNR-34
- Ford GP
- BA-64
- T-60 obr 1942
- Panzer II Ausf C
- T-26 obr 1939
- T-70 obr 1943
- M3 Stuart I
- M3 Grant
- Char B1 bis
- M26 Pershing
- Iosef Stalin-2
- Iosef Stalin-3
- Char 2C
- Infantry MKIV, Churchill VII
- T-35
- PzKpfw Maus
- M1A1 Abrams
- T-72

=Version 4 (2008)=
Added a few extra tanks, thanks to some feedback. Removed the modern tanks, because of the creation of the modern tank comparison charts.

- Fiat L6/40
- Type 95 Kyu-Go
- Somua S-35
- Panzer III Ausf. G
- Cromwell Mk. IV
- Panzer V Ausf. G, Panther
- Karl Gerat

Also added the weight of all tanks for a better picture of the mass of some of these things. (70 ton King Tiger?! O_o?!)

=Version 4.5 (2013)=
A very long overdue fix of the scale bar. Just a quick fix really, just so I could get that off my mind.

I have lost the original files for this chart, so if I update it it will probably have a new layout very much like the Modern Tank Scale chart.


Please download for full size~ ^_^

Dang, man. I must've been 14 when I first saw this. Where does the damn time go?

Time flies whenever it bloody feels like it. ^_^

This chart is 7 years old, which is really really old for something I come back to occasionally.

I don't suppose you could add some of the British late-war projects like the Comet or the Tortoise? Maybe even the Centurion Mark 1?

Sanity-X Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Student Artist
It's a German self-propelled siege mortar, armed with a massive 600mm mortar.

Nissan Skyline, the most feared vehicle in WorldWar 2

The Skyline was the reason the US nuked Japan. They couldn't bear fighting them on the *Touge. XD

*Touge =  A form of racing in Japan involving two cars chasing each other single file through a twisty course, traditionally mountain roads.
