faq is pretty good, though I disagree about the maus comment info, not there stance about it but the info (of course they can do whatever)

the Maus barely has concrete evidence of actual use; and we reserve the right not to include this insane vehicle... there are dozens of prototype vehicles that have a better chance of making it into FH.

- it has conrete evidence of actual use in a combat zone, the debate is whether it was destroyed by enemy fire or fired its gun in anger. it was planned for production anyway had the war gone on., -its not insane: while heavy, it was faster then a matilda I, had a faster turret roation then a tiger, the gun was used on other combat vehicles. Logisitcally it offered greater suvibablilty, lower fuel consumption, and lower production hours then the eqivilent amount of work put into more, but weaker tanks. Its all a moot point, as they certainly don't have to give reasons as to if they would do it or not- its uttery their choice. However, if they are going to give reasons those don't hold water.

The Maus is like a maximum of 100 polies. The thing is a box with a box on top. It would be a lot of fun on Alpen, but I guess we'll have to wait for a fan map to see it.

Panzer III should get priority here.

well sure its different debate as to priotizing as it is if it should be done at all, I would priortize the ft series, and countless other thigns before the maus as well.

Great news! 0.67 will be awesome for sure.

But please do the Jagdtiger, its so beautiful :) and you already have the base(although needs a bit extending) from the Kingtiger.

cmaus.jpg Those of you who didn't see this ugly piece of war, here it is!! More info here. If we want a realism mod, may be the Maus will never be included in FH. It was only a design in test stage, and it had serious problems. But if we want a mod a bit "What if...?" as Secret weapons expansion is, then the Maus is a must! ;) It can be a fun toy to practice with bazookas, but I'm sure we'd need a ton of rockets to destroy it ;) In my oppinion, only Alpenfestung could use the Maus. It's the FH concession map to fiction winkx.gif Anyway, this is not the best thread to talk about this ugly monster pleased.gif
