The Maus is the Super-Heavy Tank for the Germans. It is the overall motto of WW2 Germany, "Slow, Expensive, and hard to build, but very powerful and highly effective".

Better for a defensive role rather than offensive due to its speed of 20 km/h, the Maus is quite similar to a mobile bunker. In large numbers, it is very efficient in dealing with enemy tank spam, due to its dual AT turrets.

The Maus

  • The Panzer VIII "Maus" was a super heavy tank built by Porsche. It reached a weight of nothing less than 188 tons and was armed with a triple-mounted arrangement in the turret, featuring a 128mm cannon, a 75mm L/365, and an MG-34 machinegun. With a top speed of 13 km/h on even ground, it had the ability to move at infantry pace, but would require an escort to defend against air or infantry. With its 220mm frontal armor and a 45* slope, the Maus is also the heaviest (built) AFV known today.

Pros and Cons Edit

+Best gun in the game.

+A secondary 75mm further increasing this tank's ability to fight enemy tanks.

-Slowest unit in the game at 20 km/h.

-Due to a low speed and a lack of an MG, this tank is somewhat vulnerable to enemy infantry.

-Despite a near-mythical legend, your armor is only as strong as any nation's super heavy tank's armor.
