The Tortoise (A39) is a super-heavy assault tank developed and built in small numbers by Great Britain during World War II. It had very thick armour surpassing that of many other tanks and was armed with the extremely powerful QF 32 Pounder. After the war, it was put on trial, which succeeded, though its weight and size was found to be a problem when transporting it and when travelling through bridges. Only six vehicles were built, of which none saw action.
