3: Kubinka NIIBT Research Collection - Foreign Vehicles, Kubinka, Moscow Oblast, Russia (Current location)


This Maus has the hull of prototype V1; however its turret appears in a number of minor details to differ from the turret of V2 (it has a small hole in the turret wall just below where V2 had a pistol port, and its gun barrel appears slightly different and to be distinctively marked). It is not known whether it mounts the turret of V2 which has been modified by restoration or post-war testing or whether it is another turret altogether. Panels are missing from its fighting compartment roof and it appears that the fighting compartment interior is itself far from complete. It has been repainted since capture and now carries German cross markings.
