base on their technology, what kind of new weapon you can think of using world war 2 technology?

Goliath tank armed with panzerchrek, i draw the prototype in the other section
Advantage, this small armed tank could potentially be a solution where cheap yet powerful tank can be produced in a hugh number to encouter soviet tank, it would be a perfect tank body guard for the panzer against medium tanks like T-34.

Goliath tank as a personal car for soldiers to carry heavy equipment

armed Panzer tank with panzerchrek to increase anti-tank ability

Panzershrek would be no good on a tank, range is too short, far shorter than any tank gun being used in 1945.

how far can a typical early model T-34 shoot?

The Soviet 76.2mm anti tank gun had a maximum range of 13,580 metres (14,585yards) firing HE, so pretty far.

And the thickness of armor penetrated is 61 mm at a range of 1000 m.

maybe it could be useful in urban warfare, where the tank can embush somewhere hidden, while the radio controller can hide in somewhere safe, or in a tank where they dont need to expose themselves in controlling the tank

On a remote controlled tank of the time, it might have been a decent idea as an ambush weapon, but did they have the technology to be able to see what they were aiming at from the control point? (ie did they have the technology to transmit TV signals from a camera in the remote tank to the guy driving/firing it?)

i dont think so, thats why it might need trainning before soldiers can use it good
