After a bit of research (using Hilary L. Doyle's Panzer Tracts), I've updated the conceptual Maus and E-100 types with various planned turrets

These look really good, I wasn't aware of some of these turret choices before. Great work.

This is something that suddenly popped up from the deepest caverns of my memories.
Back in 1978 or 1979 or so I bought me a copy of the German airplane magazine “FlugRevue” (Flight Revue). Inside I found an article introducing the newest ideas for cargo planes. Beluga-like hulls, container systems and – this one, named the “Air Loiter Vehicle”. The idea behind it was to transport voluminous goods, like construction machines, military vehicles or huge machinery not within a confined hull, but instead tied down on a flatbed. On the ground, the tail would have been lowered and the cargo be loaded by using a ramp.
For sure, this concept was… let’s say: Not to smart. Everyone can imagine the turbulences around hydraulic excavators, caterpillars, tanks or similar, non aerodynamic cargo.
I tried to find any kind of evidence about that thing on the internet – but failed. I can even imagine it was nothing but an April’s-Fool-Prank.
Accordingly, this image is nothing but a piece of memory, kitbashed from pieces of Boeing 747 (wings), 767 (rudder, here V-shaped) and Airbus A300 (cockpit section).
IMHO, this would be an aeronautic competitor to Heuhen’s weird ship challenge.
