Analysis

The largest vehicle ever developed was the T28 Super Heavy Tank at 95 tons, which is about three-fifths as heavy as The Statue of Liberty, according to themeasureofthings.com. Furthermore, the U.S. Army also developed this tank to counter German heavy tanks in 1945. But unfortunately, this vehicle never saw combat and only reached its prototype stage, according to militaryfactory.com.  

Following the T28 would be the T29 Heavy Tank, and four more vehicles weighing above 60 tons that are split between two heavy tanks, one Armored vehicle-launched bridge, and one Main Battle Tank. After that, we’ll have the M1A1 Abrams, the T26E4 Super Pershing, and then six more vehicles weighing above 40 tons that are split between four tanks, one Assault Breacher Vehicle, and one Armored Fighting Vehicle.

Moreover, the last six vehicles on this list all weigh below 40 tons, with the lightest one being the M10 Wolverine at 33 tons, according to Military Wiki. Additionally, we can also visualize the weight of the M10 Wolverine to be the same as about two-and-a-half times the Anchor of a Cruise Ship, according to themeasureofthings.com.       

A notable fact about this list is that only one of these vehicles did not originate from America. And this vehicle is the Lynx KF41, an Armored Fighting Vehicle made and developed by the German company Rheinmetall. And according to their website, the U.S. Army is one of their potential operators. Furthermore, the Lynx KF41 weighs 44 tons or about six-and-a-half times as heavy as an African bush elephant, according to themeasureofthings.com.  

Lastly, 13 vehicles from this list were developed by the U.S. Army during the second world war, according to tanks-encyclopedia.com. The remaining vehicles, on the other hand, were created by the U.S. Army for the Vietnam war, Iraqi war, and the Afghan war, according to Wikipedia.
