....considering everyone above T8 is shooting gold.  What were you thinking coming up with this mission?  I have a T95 and Jadg Panzer E100....in my last 6 battles, I bounced NOTHING as every shot was gold.  Fire the idiot that came up with that one.

Funny, I've been playing the 5A and 430U and I've already completed all 3.

 

Edit: there's so little rush on these, you have weeks to complete them, no?

Played the maus and got all 3 done in give or take 6 games. It's not hard.

Bounced 8800 in my Maus last night. One shot (and a survival) away from the campaign mission I've been stuck on for months. You've got to play well AND get lucky to block big damage. 

 

Tip: Try playing at long range where your weakspots can't be accurately hit. Keep trying until you get an ideal matchup (no arty and tanks two tiers lower). Once you're in an ideal match, try to make sure you're spotted a lot at long range so the enemy has more chances to shoot (and bounce). Playing like this might cost you some damage and maybe some wins, but sometimes you've gotta play for the mission, not the match. Sometimes in my Maus I will go over a minute without firing because that would mean un-angling my turret.

Not everyone is shooting gold... http://wotreplays.eu/site/5394869#siegfried_line-24_inch_pythons-vk_168_01_mauerbrecher

10 games in the Mauerbrecher and I have two of the three missions done (and that includes the waste as any extra doesn't carry over...)

I kind of like the mission, it gives me a reason to bring out the Mauerbrecher. Otherwise I really wouldn't have one, it kinda sucks. (it's not absolutely terrible... but it sure isn't good.)

All 3 finished.  Much of it done with Tortoise & AT-15.

A week is more than enough time, too.

I used the Liberte and got them all done. It did take longer than I would have liked, but it got done and can be done. Just be patient. You don't have to do them all in one day.

Yesterday I played like 5 matches with my E-75 and completed 2/3 of the missions and the last one is at around 70%.

I completed these missions with my 8.8cm pak 43 jagdtiger yesterday with minimal effort. Would just find a spot at long range where I could hull down to avoid exposing my lower plate. Was done with the missions in no time at all.

If you try it in the super tough TDs then yeah, people will be spamming prem and HE at you, its far more efficient to pick something softer yet durable so they fire standard rounds at you, for example I got most of it done in the e75 TS t8 prem, fantastic frontal turret, bounced tons of S conq shouts in one murovanka. Other than that had pretty good success with the T-34-3.
