Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon Information

The massive Tiger tank was planned to be in service for the Battle of El Alamein. Technical problems delayed its arrival in North Africa until later in the year when they were shipped to Tunisia to fight there. They fought alongside the Afrika Korps in the Battle of Kasserine Pass.

The Tiger first underwent development when specifications for a new heavy tank were sent out to various manufacturers. It was to mount a gun that penetrated 100mm of armour at a 1500m and also be able to withstand return fire from similar weapons. Henschel developed the VK3601, but this design was to have a squeeze bore weapon, which had to be abandoned due to the lack of an adequate supply of tungsten for the ammunition. The VK3601 was quickly adapted to mount the 8.8cm KwK36 gun, which had already made itself famous in the anti-tank role as the FlaK 36.

  • 2x Plastic Tiger (8.8cm) Tanks
