Why does the Maus (Panzer VIII) only have the 128mm, which is a tier 8 TD gun on the RHM?

 

 

I do find it strange that most German tanks in the game are WW2 vintage at the upper tiers,

 

you have it backwards, if you actually looked at the RHM's 128 mm gun you'd see it has a tier 10 gun.  therefore I flip the argument upon you and ask why does a tier 8 have a tier 10 gun?

 

as for most 'vintage'.... yeah, the Leo PTA, Leo 1, E50, E50m, E75, E100, JPZE100, RHM Panzer Wagon, Ru 251, etc. etc. all saw such active duty in world war 2 era :trollface:

Well, to be fair, the E series are all WWII era designs, or WG fabrications based on WWII era designs at least.  PTA, Leo, RHM PZ, and ru not so much. 

Edit:  let me emphasize prototype/ paper only designs, not actual combat designs /edit

 

Maus does get better gun handling than the RHM with the 152, at least.  Personally, I think it could use a bit better gun handling even than it has.   When a superheavy has such a large, glaring weakpoint as the maus, it needs to have the gun handling to make snapshots so as to limit exposure of that weakpoint. Like maybe halve its movement bloom.  Turret bloom is already good.  (Or, perhaps, across the board gun handling nerfs to some of its competition to reverse some of this power creep)
