I didnt try the tiger 131 . But i guess its just like the VK36.01H (which i really didnt like)
Its not bad but just not worth it for me . unless u need to train german HT crews and u dnt have any other premium german HT

It is exactly the same as the Japanese Heavy Tank number 6. It is a re-skin of that one. So if you have played the Japanese Tiger the 131 plays very much the same. 

Except that the 131 comes with a super crew, so you pay the money for a 131 to get the crew, and the amount that you pay for the crew gives a free throwaway tank on top!

 

Is it any good? - yes for tier VI it is decent, in the hands a good player it is able.

Shall I take the plunge? - worth it for the crew on the standard buy, even if you ignore the tank that comes free with the crew.

 

Where is Ulf?

It's basically a HTVI with a sand-ish camo and BIA crew. 

I like it, but it can be a struggle in higher tier games.

It's alright. The armor can actually work because it's the same as on Tiger I but tier lower.

 

But you can get completely crapped on by T-34-85Ms and Cromwells if they know what they are doing. Trading works well, because you have 220 alpha and ma-housive hit point pool.

 

And you also get a BIA crew with it.

Hmm... Never played the Jap Tiger. Think i'll pass. Tier 6 is still tier 6.

Like other's have said it's basically the HT6 with a super crew and a much better skin, which isn't a bad thing if you want a tiger but don't want to grind it and don't want it to be green.

It's also for all intents and purposes the T6 VK HT thing... They play the same anyway.

 

I'd rather play the T7 tech tree Tiger as that one has an exceptional gun whereas 131 lacks that extra bit of accuracy and pen.

 

Worth it for the BiA crew however as they fit other German HT. I've grinded mine to their 3rd skill since Summer.

Apart from it's far sexier.

 

I have both and the German one just feels better, even though I have a BIA crew in the Japanese version.  For me tier VI premiums are better for crew training and more fun than tier VIII, you just make a few less credits.  If you don;t have premium though you might be better off with one of these than a tier VIII, especially if it needs a dose of premium ammo to be competitive.

its nothing special. Isnt very bad but also nothing surprising. 220 alpha sometimes lets earn some nice creds but tank is quite slow and sluggish and same time lacks armor. Not very fun to play. Also it is for full price while tomorrow you can get same tanks only as japanese heavy like for 10 eur. All in all if you are not a collector or tigers fanboy dont buy it doubly you gonna play it much anyway.

I would say... No, unless you really want the BIA crew and XP missions. As a grinding tank, Tiger 131 isn't very fun to play.

 

Tbh if WG just sold the BIA crew and Tiger 131 worth the gold in a bundle, that might be better :)

 

EDIT:  I think my Tiger 131 crew is in T-55A at the moment at least partly.

I'd buy an interesting tier VI, but this is not an interesting tier VI.

145 pen.  pretty much kills it for me 

 

ARL 212

M6 160

T-150 167

Tog  171

Kv-85 175

 

proably most similar to the Churchill  but that tank still got more pen., dpm and about 50mm more frontal armor without a giant 50mm copula

Jap Tiger no VI is great as top tier, terrible in a tier 8 game as it's more or less the same as the 131. But when I played it it had 132 pen, and no 3-5-7 MM. Not that 145 in a tier 8 game is better. But it saves you on RNG as top tier a bit more. Recommended? Not really.
