    About the Maus:

    The enormous dummy turret on the Maus prototype recreated the correct weight of the proposed final turret, but of course didn't contain any armaments. A striking feature of this model is the series of red Russian markings. The stars and hammers and sickles were painted on the Maus because the Germans wanted to trick people into thinking that this was a captured Russian vehicle, rather than one of their own secret developments.
