About this item
Tiger I is a German heavy tank developed in 1942 and used in WWII. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausfuehrung E, shortened to Tiger, a nickname given it by Ferdinand Porsche. It was an answer to the Soviet armor encountered in the initial months of the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union. This design gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88-millimeter gun, which had proven its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. The Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts, usually deployed in tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable. While the Tiger I was feared by many of its opponents, it was over-engineered requiring expensive materials to complete the time consuming process of production. It was generally mechanically reliable, but expensive to maintain and hard to transport, while also prone to track failures and immobilizations. Only 1,347 were built in two years; in 1944, production was phased out in favor of the Tiger II.
