Found this while self-educating about the artist Boris Groh (https://www.artstation.com/borisgroh ).

Walkers and a pair of Gepards, a BMP2 and maybe a T62?

Very dystopian artwork. :-X

Interesting but, oh so dark! :-\

The article was quite well done.  I did leave a comment though about V-S Day which is a pretty good read and mentioned another novel using Sanger's project, Hell's Gate which has it's implausible elements but, in the right hands, would make a great retro-technothriller action movie along the lines of the first "Indiana Jones" movie.

It does make the point that Germany just couldn’t afford to build such craft.
