Did you know that:

  • F. Porsche submitted the first plans for a superheavy tank with the original name Mammut as early as 1942.
  • Before the end of the war, 8 tanks were set up, one of which was completely completed and able to perform army tests.
  • A total of 200 pieces should to be produced in two series, but in October 1943 A. Hitler personally canceled the order and ordered the completion of only prototypes under construction.
  • Even the most powerful engine available in Germany was not able to move a 188-ton tank at the originally planned speed of 20 km / h.
  • Due to the extreme weight of the tank, there was no bridge in Germany at the end of the war that the machine could carry.
  • Maus was theoretically capable of deep wading (up to 13 meters), but such an action was extremely risky, as it threatened to get stuck in the mud or have problems with the remote power cord.
  • A special railway wagon with a sufficient loading area width and load capacity had to be constructed for the eventual transport of the tank.
  • The Mause gearbox was manufactured in Škoda Plzeň.
  • The two completed pieces were never fired at the enemy. One prototype was destroyed by the Germans in Kummersdorf, so as not to fall into the hands of the enemy, and the other was damaged during transport to positions in the defense of Berlin.
  • The tank captured by the Red Army was taken to the Soviet Union, where it is still on display in the military museum.
  • After defeet of Berlin, construction plans were discovered for an even heavier Mauerbracher tank, which, according to available information, was never built. Legend says, that one piece was built and deployed in April 1945 during the defense of Berlin, where it fell into a subway tunnel, where it was later hit by a drilling rig and the subway route had to be diverted.
