Brief HistoryIn service with the German Army from 1942 to 1945. At the time of its introduction, and for sometime afterward, the Tiger 1 was the most powerful tank in the World. Its thick frontal armour ensured that any frontal shot could not penetrate. The overlapping wheels gave a soft ride but often froze together and jammed the tracks in the Russian winter nights. An estimated 1280 were built which is a small number considering its reputation and effect on Allied morale.
