Description

The Tiger tank was the most formidable armoured fighting vehicle of the Second World War, earning a reputation as a nearly indestructible killing machine. From the first moment it appeared on the battlefield in 1942, nothing in the Allied arsenal could stand up to it. Weighing 56 tons, heavily armoured and built around an awesome 88mm cannon, the Tiger enjoyed a kill ratio of 10:1 on the Western Front and a staggering 18:1 against the Soviets. The only chance Allied tanks had was get almost suicidally close to fire or to overwhelm it with sheer numbers.

This title tells the story of the Tiger at war, from its development as a ‘Breakthrough Tank' in 1937 to the fall of the Third Reich. Packed with original footage of the Tiger in action and rare factory film and stills, it examines the combat deployment and fighting tactics used and includes dramatic accounts of Tiger engagements. Also covered are unit markings, schematics, camouflage patterns and crew uniforms. Each Tiger cost 1 million Marks and took 3.5 million man hours to build. Only 1,500 were ever made. Had the Third Reich been able to mass produce this awesome weapon, the outcome of the war might have been very different
