This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The final official German designation for the tank was Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.E, often shortened to just "Tiger I".
The Tiger's development was started in 1937 by the company, Henschel. Mass production began in 1942 with a total of 1347 vehicles being manufactured over its production run.
The initial model used suspension similar to that of the Panther. The hull extended over the tracks to accommodate the wide-ringed turret which could mount the infamous 8,8cm Kw.K 36 L/56.
The Tiger first saw combat in the fighting for Leningrad and soon found itself featured in the majority of German armoured engagements.
Even though production was discontinued in the summer of 1944, the Tiger I continued to see action until the end of the war.
It was the first German heavy tank in WWII and soon proved itself to be extremely formidable against Allied and Soviet units which mostly consisted of Sherman tanks and T-34s at the time.
