Restoration tank Maus will launch a series of large-scale joint projects

16 April 2014 - Wargaming is pleased to announce the launch of a long-term exclusive strategic partnership with the federal state autonomous institution Central Museum of Armored Armament and Equipment of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The combined efforts of Wargaming and the museum in Kubinka will be aimed at restoring the unique exhibits of the military stories and will help raise interest in the richest historical and cultural heritage of the Great Patriotic War.

The first major step in cooperation will be the restoration and staging of the world's only instance of a German super-heavy tank Maus captured by the Soviet army in Germany in 1945 and delivered by 4 in May 1946 to the Kubinka training ground as a trophy.

“The restoration of the Mouse is undoubtedly a grandiose project, but this is only the beginning,” says Sergey Podkorytov, director of Wargaming RUS. “The largest museum of armored vehicles in the world is located in Kubinka, and we are confident that together we can revive more than one monument of military history.”

In addition to restoring the “Maus”, companies are preparing to launch other joint projects, including as part of the recently announced global “We Remember Everything” campaign.

“The Maus tank has become one of the most important military trophies of the Great Patriotic War and the opportunity to restore this truly unique model is a huge honor for us,” said the director of the museum in Kubinka, Andrey Sorokova. “Now Wargaming is our only, exclusive partner, and we hope that our joint contribution to the revival of military history will contribute to raising interest in the exploits of our grandfathers and in the great past of our common homeland.”

The announcement was made during a large-scale event held on the territory of the museum in Kubinka and dedicated to the release of the 9.0 update for the online action World of Tanks. The event was one of the most popular events held in the museum, and gathered more than 6000 people, among whom were both game fans and fans of military history and technology.

    Good, of course, and very interesting. I would like to visit Kubinka, the tank museum. But..

    "Wargaming will become the exclusive strategic partner of the Kubinka Armored Museum." - they do not consider this military cooperation? And then suddenly they will repair and launch "Mouse", and we will throw it on the EU and seize the whole of Europe with the help of this mastodon.

    The Cuban Museum is rich in very interesting and rare exhibits, but it lacks sensible PR specialists. I hope Wargaming will contribute to this, because just repairing one exhibit is not so interesting and practically not profitable.

    There can be no talk of any "exclusive cooperation" of the Cypriot company Wargaming.
