Even if the Type 5 is overall stronger (IMO), the Maus is arguably slightly better for that mission, because it blocks damage easier than the Type does. Type doesn't take premium too well; meanwhile, the Maus can bounce even premium fairly easily, although that requires to have your turret angled, in which position you really cannot dish out damage in return. After blocking enough damage, you can just start trading with your 3k HP to do damage, as well as losing HP which also helps with HT-15. It's fairly easy with Maus - if you block 7000 and take 2000 HP worthy of damage, you need to do only 3000 raw damage by yourself. The mission is very doable with the Type 5 as well, though, especially when top tier 3-5-7, because tier 8s struggle to penetrate you even with premium.

 

Up to preference, I guess.

Maus is better. Take it into open map such as Fiery Salient, start driving middle slowly and let the rain begin. You will get blocked damage faster than you can count - angling a MUST.

 

Type - all tier 10 can pen it easily and if enemy is using premium ammo you are dead.
