Dear Community,
Many of you were asking about this project, if it is real, because it has appeared on the War Thunder's Tank tree,( http://forum.worldof...sr-and-germany/ ) and Gaijin has confirmed they will put tanks what fought or were deployed, but didn't fight in war. We are good till this vehicle, all of them are known, expect some of the StuG variants, so why not implent Maus on the top? It would actuallly kick off every single Russian tanks, without problems, but a more rational choice, if we look at the above statement.
So to not waste my words, here is the actual data from the book titled Germany's Tiger tanks - VK45.02 to Tiger II by Hilary L. Doyle and Thomas L. Jentz

As far as I know, there were plans to upgrade the Tiger II towards the end of the war. Both with a 1200 HP (Maybach) engine and a 10.5 cm (The KwK 46 L/68) main gun. Neither was implemented and I never read anything about the KwK 46 having been developed. The 46 would indicate development would have been finalized in 1946, as it was common to add that to the gun (L/71 was finalized in 1943 for example).
