    You all know how I'm obsessed with Cranes, right?
    Well, Demag unveiled a TWIN version of it's flagship CC-8800, which is a 1,600tn crane. Basically, the TWIN version bumps up the lifting capacity to 3,200tn's. The only problem is only 3 exist. first one went to Al Jaber in Middle East, second one went to a Chinese Nuclear Power Company and the third one is at Demag's factory in Germany.
    The one that went to the Chinese Nuclear company recently completed a series of 900+ ton lifts at Haiyang Power Plant in China.

    Nice. Still doesn't compare to the real-life.... Um... Thing.... That Cybertron Metroplex is modeled after, though.

    I like how they counterweighted the crane.

    You ever see that German-developed crane that can pretty much self-assemble, Mangus?
