The Anti-Godzilla Tank is a fictional model of conventional tank fielded by the U.S. Army in the 1998 TriStar Pictures film GODZILLA.

Development

The Anti-Godzilla tank was designed by a team led by production designer Oliver Scholl, who supervised the process, Patrick Janicke, who designed concept art and illustrations for the tank, and set designer Mick Cukurs, who produced the final blueprints. Both scale models and a full-scale tank were produced. The latter was larger than an M1 Abrams tank, making it one of the largest concept vehicles ever constructed.[1]

History

GODZILLA (1998)

In 1998, these tanks were sent to New York along with other vehicles to help the American military combat a giant monster dubbed Godzilla. When the tanks finally engaged Godzilla near the Flatiron Building, their fire was easily dodged by the monster, and what few shots did strike it seemed to have no effect. Following this failed engagement, the tanks were instead stationed at several roadblocks, providing backup fire for the more agile M270 MLRS launchers and HMMWVs.
