Brief HistoryIn service with the German Army from 1944 to 1945. The first 50 were fitted with the Porsche turret. Subsequent King Tigers were fitted with the simpler Henschel turret which also offered better protection. The King Tiger was the heaviest and most powerful tank to go into production during World War II. An estimated 484 in total were completed. Because of its size and weight, it lacks mobility. But when deployed properly in small groups, it proved very effective and could engage many more times its own numbers of enemy with some outstanding successes.
