With Tiger 1 being the current in the “Inside The Tanks” series I thought it apt to spend some time looking at the evolution of perhaps the most well-known Tank in History.

Ahh yes the French Char 2C. I would so love to see that as a premium tank, the TOG 2* could use some company :).

[...]Hence the evolution of the VK 45.01(H) Henschel and the VK 45.02(P) Porsche.
You mean VK 45.01(P), cause VK 45.02(P) was a Porsche's prototype of Tiger II.

Quote

Both designs essentially used the same Porsche designe.d, but constructed by Krupp, turret.
Porsche didn't designed any turret, it was Krupp's design based (I think) on Porsche specifications.

It's very good idea that U make series of movies and articles about one subject, keep 'em coming!

Tiger I in WoT... is as useless as it gets... a good sniper though... if you are not spotted...

"Realistic gameplay"... Tiger was the German's most widely used tank in WWII... Its damn useless here.

Widely used means most numerous.

That woud be StugIII most made 11000 or then PzIV followed by Panther then Tiger with only 1400 or so made then Lastly Tiger II and Jagd Panther

It was actually one of the rarest sights on the battlefield but when it did appear everyone was shitting in their pants.

Seems panzer fanboys lovers forget how Tiger earned it's reputation - by beating up T-34s, Shermans, Churchills, KVs etc which would be in mostly stock configurations in WoT.

And believe me, when fighting tier Vs it's just as much of a killing machine that it was in real life :glasses:
