Often called “The Royal Tiger”, Tiger II was the last serial heavy tank of the Third
Reich. Powerful weapons – 88mm gun KwK 43 – and excellent optics combined with
thick armour (150mm on the front of the hull, 80mm along the sides), the sheets of
which were inclined to better deflect enemy shells. The Tiger II’s gun was a modified
version of the gun from the “Ferdinand”, which was 69.8 tons and as a result, this
tank had poor road performance.
Tiger II’s battle debut in the 503rd heavy tanks battalion on the Western Front of
World War II on July 17 1944, clearly demonstrated all the advantages of new
machines: the “Shermans” were lit up one by one. In fact, the “Royal Tigers” also
dropped out due to mechanical problems and breakdowns during the retreat.
On the Soviet-German front, the first battle of Tiger II did not bring them success:
Soviet artillery, self-propelled guns, and the heavy tanks of IS-2 gave the enemy a
very warm welcome on August 11-13 1944.
Tiger II was definitely a very powerful tank. However, being released in the relatively
small number of 492 tanks, it could not influence the outcome of the war for Germany.
