At the time Daimler Benz and Ferdinand Porsche were all at it too, ironically neither of them actually designed anything above a prototype that I know of. Porsche’s VK 45.01 (P) tank which failed to impress the Third Reich was very technically advanced for its time as it used a petrol/electric system (air cooled v10 petrol engine powering 2 electric generators and a total of 4 electric drives) whereas others used traditional mechanical drive shafts. In many ways a forerunner of modern hybrids.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

After I was made reductant from Shell I did a 2 year full time Poole College course on historic vehicle restoration.
This involved 8 weeks working int e Bovington Tank Museum workshop........
https://www.tankmuseum.org/home
When it's open again and you can travel the distance, it is one of THE BEST days out you can have if you are interested in the history of the tank from day one to the present day. They have hundreds of tanks from all around the world.
I worked on what is now the now only working Tiger in the world..
It was captured in the North African campaign by a squadron of British tanks.
When a round from our side hit the mantle of the Tiger, didn't explode, ricochetted up to the under side of the barrel and then down into the turret ring gear, jamming it. The Tiger crew thought they were goiig to 'brew up' and legged it. We jumped into it and drove it home.
The marks are clearly visible on mantle, barrel and base of the turret.
For all my hard work I was presented with one of the knackered wheel bearings, about 6 inch diameter ball race.
The even have a TIGER DAY every year (covid notwithstanding) when it can be seen in all it's magnificence actually being driven. A truly awesome machine.
