The Panzer VIII Maus was a German super heavy tank developed during World War 2. Developed in late 1944, only two prototypes were ever completed.
Encountered during the Rommel stage in Strikers 1945 II, the Maus is a stationary target, never changing its position, unlike the other tank enemies. It fires a single, powerful shot before having to re-align with the player's plane, often taking a couple of seconds before being able to fire a second shot.
- Despite the actual Maus being armed with both a secondary cannon and a machine gun, the in-game Maus never uses either, instead relying on only its main gun.
