history of the King Tiger
With its angular lines, high velocity 88mm gun and
immense size the King Tiger is without doubt the most
impressive tank from WWII. When operating to its full
capability it was a very difficult tank to beat, especially
if you were in a Sherman! If you compare one of these
monsters with a Sherman then every allied crew deserved
a medal! With its wide tracks it was a lot more manoeuvrable
than at first thought and it could traverse places that
the narrower tracked allied tanks could not. However,
its all up weight of 69,000kgs put great stress onto
its final drive system. A King Tiger needed a very good
driver to get the best out of it. As with most German
tanks, it was extremely well engineered but much too
complicated and time consuming to build in the large
numbers needed by the German Army. It was difficult
to mass-produce unlike the Russian T34. Still, it was
a good for us tank enthusiasts that they were made at
all as they now make very impressive models, particularly
in the 1/6th Version. At the moment I think the King
Tiger is the most impressive of all our tank models.
