Tank Commanders,

Wargaming is pleased to unveil its plans to join with its long-term partner, the Russian Kubinka Tank Museum, to reconstruct and put back to a running condition the only remaining Panzer VIII Maus tank.

A legendary vehicle even within World of Tanks itself, the monstrous Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus is the heaviest, fully enclosed armoured fighting vehicle to see completion during World War II. With only two prototypes ever built, the sole surviving tank is now housed at the Kubinka Museum with an empty hull.

Wargaming, along with the museum, intends to re-build its interior from scratch, based on authentic diagrams. Missing parts will be restored in single quantities at a number of tank-building plants, with the entire process supervised by experienced warfare conservators. The restored Maus will be housed at the Kubinka Museum so that people from all over the world may see the renowned vehicle up close and personal.
