Fun fact : Because of its enormeous weight, the MAUS couldnt use bridges. It was therefore equipped with a snorkel, and had to be connected to another MAUS for power to the electrodieselengines while crossing rivers. Yup-crossing as in going under water. I said it reminded me of a warship...
Did it see combat one might wonder?
No it didnt-only 2 were ever produced and they were blown up by own crew when the area around the factory was overrun. There is in fact one remaining today, in a museum in Russia-more on this with the photos:
Size does matter...
I mean really...just look at that thing!
Size does have it challenges...like sinking...
Grab a shovel were almost there...
This turret from the V2 (Second version built) was put on the V1 hull
