The "Maus" that roared! (Tier IX replacement)

This is so damn stupid. They're so insistent on giving the Mauschen a 15cm gun even when it causes a balancing nightmare (that's not even considering the armor scheme) yet they don't even hint at giving a bigger alternative gun to the Maus which would be much more appropriate tier-for-tier.

That's because of their policy of historical accuracy as long as someone in the company bothered to research something on wikipedia ;)

WG is obliged to give it a 150mm gun. There are very, very few "historically accurate" things that WG ever follows, but allowing a tank to have whatever gun it was intended to actually have is one of those things. This is the same reason that the IS-4 has the D-25t and the M48 Patton has a total shithouse 90mm gun.

But they gave E3 the 155 that it wasn't planned to have (it was to be armed with the 120mm), sooo...

As I've said above. They probably started reading about the vehicle but the article was detailed so they went TL:DR and that's how it ended.

The E3 and E4 are among a handful of vehicles AFAIK  that don't have their historical armament stuffed on their tech tree

The E3 with a 120mm with Tortoise-level DPM might be fun as long as it's just a stock gun.

The E4 isn't even a real tank though.

The only other real ones that come to mind without their planned weapon are the T2 light (should have a .50 cal) and possibly the SU-8 (should have 76mm AA gun).

Didn´t WG fuck up the numbers on the E serie TDs? What we call E3 was actually a E4 and so on?

 Yep.  E3 should be called the E4 and have the 120mm gun, E4 is a fake, E5 is the E5, but was modeled wrong.
