A great thing would be to include the German super heavy tank prototype "Maus". I know, a tank with approx. 188 tons, a 150 mm main gun (KwK 44 L/38) and a 75 mm coax gun (KwK 44 L/36,5) sounds a bit ridiculous but it sure would be impressive. 2 Prototypes were actually built (but only one with a working turret).

no... both were still in prototype and were sent to Kummersdorf where they were later destroyed before the russians took the city.

There's a rumour that one of the two prototypes (the one with the finished turret) actually saw combat but there is no proof and it really is nothing more but a rumour. Both prototypes were destroyed by the personal of the Kummersdorf testing grounds before the russians captured them. They took what was left of the two and other parts of follow-up models to build a new one which can be seen in the Kubinka Tank Museum. I've seen photos of this "Maus" and it shows various non-penetrating hits to the frontal armour resulting from russian tests NOT combat. Also I've read about a russian tank commander who claims he has destroyed at least one "Maus" in combat. Well - this is just ridiulous. First of all no russian tank had the power to penetrate the massive armour of this monster (remember, it's 188 tons of steel - the Pz VI King Tiger had 70 tons!!), second it is definitly reported from Kummersdorf testing grounds that only two prototypes were operational for testing, none of the actually for combat (not even the one with the finished turret). I see the point that it doesn't make much sense to spend time on something which has never seen combat - I was just so much impressed by this tank monster since I heard about it first years ago. Anyhow thanks to the fhmod-team for the great work so far.
