You can fire HE rounds into the lower turret cheeks if your gun is good enough to warrant HE dumping, because it splashes down into the engine deck and fuel tanks. Nothing like triggering a fire or further crippling the mobility.

 

Tried your tip today in my 30B. Fired HE at the lower portion of the cheek. Set him on fire with my first shell!!!

 

He had an auto FE, and I couldn't replicate but got him in the end anyway. 

 

I'm going to try the ground tip for [edited]and giggles. Was watching a Spitfire documentary and the pilot said one of the things they did was to shoot the ground under the German tanks to have the shell bounce up of the ground to the underside. Dunno about that as the kinetic energy lost from a 50 cal might be too much, but the old b/w film clearly showed shells bouncing up off the ground with fair velocity. And hey, he was there shooting at German tanks, I wasn't.

I think the Maus is way underpowered.  It's frontal plate gets penetrated way too often and it is just a big clumsy tank.  I believe the E-100 is better in every way save for hit points.

Tier eight heavies pen it and out drive it.  It is just a clunky vehicle that yes, has some brilliant advantages but overall isn't worth it in my eyes.

Load premium. The entire thing is a weakspot.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter
