Tiger Tank

The Tiger tank was one of the most feared land weapons of World War II. Introduced with the Germany Army in 1942, the Tiger mounted a high velocity 88mm cannon and was protected by significant armor. The Tiger II incorporated some improvements and reached the battlefield in 1944. Both were designed and manufactured primarily by Henschel, although Porsche competed for the contract and elements of the Porsche design were incorporated in the development of the Tiger tank. The Tiger was feared; however, it consumed great quantities of fuel, its ponderous weight limited cross country operations, and it proved somewhat mechanically unreliable.
