That's a cool idea. I love the Vickers 6-ton derivatives. Why waste a perfectly good tank gun when you can use a flame-thrower, machine gun or explosives?

The teletank doesn't seem to have helped the Russians much against the Finns.

I doubt anything on God's Green Earth could have helped the Reds against the Finns. That was a forlorn hope of Tolkien proportions from the Get-Go.

So, it looks like a Charioteer & T-55 on the bottom, a M113 & a M4 Sherman variant above them, a BTR-152 & a Saladin next up, with 2 more Saladins above them, followed by a Ferret & a Soviet truck of some kind, then a Jeep & yet another Saladin, with 2 more Ferrets topping the pile.

If the tanks were still functional and the turrets could traverse, this would be like a 1930s Popular Mechanics design: "Tower of tanks defends city from attackers!"

Build it as a cosmopolitan Paris section of the Maginot Line - is it an armored battalion's motorpool?

                                             a verticle fortress?

Yes!
