The second September Top of the Tree special is about to be launched! This time it’s the German Maus and the two vehicles leading to it in the tech tree!

"When it comes to equipment, it is a very good idea to invest in the Super-Heavy Spall Liner as it will reduce the damage from artillery and HE shells by 50%"
Wrongly worded. It adds 50% to armor thickness against HE shells. For example it will essentially reduce ~110 damage from an HE shell that hits directly on the Maus's front upper hull, so it's definitely not straight 50% cut damage.

Sorry all, the link from the portal created a topic in the French community rather than the English community, moving/trimming the thread has created some posts to be lost.

If they nerfed the uberOP penetration guns nowadays, the maus might be worth playing...

Penning the maus with normal AP is hard and needs some skill. It's the 400-450 pen HEAT flinging TDs that you meet several of every single T10 battle, that makes the maus miserable to play as. It's also why I stopped playing my E100 months ago, and why the only T10s I use now are my JPE100 (420 pen HEAT spam to victory) and my FV4202 (doesnt rely on armor).

Also note at 0:48 how the video conveniently cuts into the next scene right before the E-100 would have blasted HEAT through the Maus's front turret :P

So, does the T-62A Special finish on the 16th Sept @ 07.10 as previously announced?

http://worldoftanks..../top-tree-t62a/

As the Maus is advertised to start on 15th Sept @ 07.10?


Is this an error for the T-62A WG or will there be a day of both running?

Well, time to work of the last 20k exp from the VK4501a, so I can get the B on sale.

So far I got ISU, centaurion, IS-7 and batchat from the top of the three offers. Need 3k exp to get T-54.  And got some other tier VIII+ tanks in the queue, just waiting for their section of the special...  :glasses:

Player tip: please remember that the tremendous weight limits Maus’s speed to 20 km/h. However, the vehicle is equipped with a 1,750 h.p. engine which allows it to reach this limit almost immediately. Therefore we advise you NOT to bother trying to push the Maus from behind – you won’t make it go any faster. Doing so will only annoy the Maus player, waste your own time, make you stay behind when you could have been assuming strategically important positions on the map, and worst case scenario, you may also damage your own vehicle in the attempt.

This :) Please stop pushing Mice

after a year and a half of having it researched I might just get it at that price ,

only problem is my VK and tiger crews went into some thing else a long time ago and now don't have a spare crew for it .

It still should have been on offer in the Safari special but still.
