The engine was an improved Maybach HL234 which had 900 hp. Earlier drafts of the Maus showed that the maus was first planned to be equipped with the 15.0 cm kwk 44 L/38, but this was later replaced with the 12.8 cm kwk 44 L/55. The E-50 hull was to be longer than the Panther, in fact it was practically identical to the Königstiger (Tiger II) in overall dimensions except for the upper and lower glacis plate layout.
