The Panzerkampfwagen IX and Panzerkampfwagen X were theoretical projects developed by the German military during World War II using the latest developments of Panzerkampfwagen armored vehicles, intended to enter in action in 1946-47.

Such vehicles only existed as projects on drawing boards, there are no blueprints showing the realistic look of both vehicles. PzKpfw X was to be wider but lower than the other superheavy tank 'Maus' and was to be armed with an 88 mm or even a 128 mm gun. Both designs were very advanced, including many features which can be found in modern tanks of today. According to the latest research it appears that these near-modern tanks were not even considered by the designers but instead were propaganda sketches published in Signal magazine in 1944, to misinform the Allies about the progress of German tank development.
