BackgroundEditPanzerkampfwagen VIII Maus was a German World War II super-heavy tank completed in late 1944. It is the heaviest fully enclosed armoured fighting vehicle ever built. Only one complete prototype was built before the testing grounds were captured by the advancing Soviet forces.
The Maus greatest strength is its superior armor and ability to take alot of incoming shells before going down. The superior armor also creates the vehicles biggest weakness, it is a big target as well as very slow. This makes the Maus a perfect target for artillery. It also has to rely on other tanks to support it due to slow turret traverse speed and becouse its easy to flank the Maus.
Premium shells greatly increases penetration of the 12,8 cm KwK 44 L/55 gun.
The Maus is best put to use as the leading tank in an assault supported by other tanks or as an defensive vehicle.
Many believe the Maus was the reason dinosaurs went extinct, but science has proven otherwise
