quite some time ago i heared a rumour of a new FH map called "Kummersdorf". that place was an experimental site for tanks and other weaponary and located somewhere in eastern germany. it would be a late war map where the russians attack that place to salvage german war technology while the defenders use prototypes like the ultraheavy MAUS tank to fight of strong enemy forces including many tanks. was that only a rumour or is there some truth to this?

no, peenemünde was a pure rocket science and testing facility. kummersdorf is in brandenburg/germany and was used as a heeresversuchsanstalt (general proving ground for the german army) where all kind of equipment was tested, including tanks, bunkers and also such strange things like gasmasks for horses. here i have a link about kummerdorf: http://www.mv.com/users/ctwilkes/Hans/Episode_1/Kummersdorf.html and here another one about the panzer MAUS: http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Maus%20%28tank%29 p.s.: but you are somewhat right D-Fens. wernher von braun did his first rocket tests at kummersdorf, until it was deemed too dangerous and he moved to peenemünde.

I think you're maybe thinking of the Battlegroup42 Maus discussed a while back - never heard of anything like that for FH.

PanzamanAccording to some sources, there were two complete prototypes at the factory when the Russians attacked and they drove out to help fight them off. Of course, they probably didn't actually see combat and were probably destroyed by the Germans, but I think there's maybe enough justification for a map based around the factory with the Russians attacking. Two Maus tanks would spawn at the start (but never respawn) and with these as German mobile spawn points it would make for an interesting and fun map that I think would still avoid 'Secret Weapons' territory. I guess it wouldn't be popular, though, so probably won't happen.

It wouldn't be much fun, it'd be like Berlin Outskirts on steroids. You'd have a mass pubbie noob TK fest to control the Maus', and they'd just be driven out to Soviet spawns and either a) a campfest would start or b) they'd be lost in minutes and round over.

No no, I mean pre 0.5 there was a map called Penemündee in two versions with Germans vs British commandos and the Red Army. This was the map where all the secret weapons were gonna be like the Go229 and also the static V1 & V2. The map was crappy though so it was scrapped. Some people had wanted the Maus there iirc.
