Superheavies like the Maus and the Japanese line, also the Defender and Co, are fictional tanks. They existed in blueprints but never in reality as they were physically impossible. I propose that superheavies are removed from the game and I expect that gold spam will instantly cease and even arty players might switch to normal tanks that are possible to pen without having to resort to gold ammo.

Here's a picture of the Maus sitting in Kubinka Tank museum in Russia.....

Spoiler

This one was a reality...even though it never saw combat.

Unlike the Maus. Most info on the Jap tanks was destroyed to prevent it from falling into Allied hands. But we do know the O-I Exp had one run before they made nails out of it. So for the rest, WG had to... improvise on some aspects iirc. The turret from what we know as the Type 5...

It was an unfinished prototype. Soviets build it, test it and ditch it.

Still... the armor values etc were taken from what they found.

No they found nothing. Maybe a photograph of a presumed turret of "Type 5" and a museum exhibit that probably never went anywhere of its own accord because it was too heavy to move.

Oh, if that's the case, T110E4, E3, E5, E100, JD.PZ E100, E50M, bobject v4 and so on, none of these existed in reality, WG should remove them too. 

 

And what about you playing unreal game? We should remove your account since it doesn't exist in reality. Opps!

Yes, but a game!

 

Not some kind of situation where one guy has a supertank and the rest of us worship him while throwing potatoes at his tank.

 

I mean why not have those extraterrestrial spaceships from World of Wars? They were really invincible and all real-life types of tanks were dying pointlessly trying to kill them. And I bet if all tanks were vulnerable to normal AP rounds of all other tanks, including two tiers lower, very few people would resort to playing SPGs or to shooting gold.

The Maus V2 Prototype

In March 1944, the second prototype Maus V2, which differed in several details from the V1, was finally finished. This new V2 lacked a powerplant, which was later fitted in mid-1944. On April 9, Krupp delivered the turret, which was mounted on the V2 and tested in June. It was mounted with a 128mm KwK 44 L/55 gun, a coaxial 75mm KwK 44 L/36.5 gun, and a 7.92mm MG34 machine gun, providing the Maus with enormous firepower. The Maus main gun could penetrate the front, side and rear armor of the American Sherman, British Cromwell and Churchill, and Russian T-34 and JS-2 tanks at ranges over 3,500 meters. Its own armor was no thinner than 7 inches anywhere, and was up to 14 inches thick at some points.

The point being, it was more than just a blueprint!:)

Well, I have it in my garage, it's gorgeous! It can block shoots so easy! Even from rear! :D 

 

I always loved to go in open field on porokhovka when there's no arty to get the maximum amount of damage blocked, but I never ruined a battle with it. :D

The Maus did exist in reality, they built 2 complete hulls and one complete turret and the allies discovered several more unfinished hulls inside a factory.

The only time when a superheavy is effective in combat is when it's facing newbie players.

 

Other times, the enemy just loads gold and completely negates the superheavy's only strongpoint, besides a larger HP pool...fat load of good that does for them, since they're bigger, slower targets.

Actually you are wrong again, the soviets found 2 Maus prototypes.

Try to read and get your facts right before spamming in the forum section, OP.

AS for the Maus, the war ended with only one assembled and one in parts...

The assembled one is in a museum ^^
