This tank is a great candidate for a prize in a marathon (such as on T-34-85M)!

Its Japanese counterpart  "HT VI"  is a very weak tank.   For a heavy tank of 6 tier, he has a weak gun. :sceptic:

I mean, at least it's better than VK 36.01 H, Tier 6 tigers really can be good if played properly, I guess you're just playing it like a potato.

Not to mention that it comes with a BiA crew, I believe it is of the Berlin variant.

Bought it last time because well I like Tigers and I had seen the original in the museum, then I forgot to even play it.

Impulse buy really.

Its problem is that it only gets to shine when its top tier or maybe mid tier as against a tier 8 there is little you can do other than try to flank or snipe.

Commanders!

For two days only, you have the possibility to add a piece of history to your garage, the Tiger 131. The main attraction of the Bovington Tank Museum in England, this vehicle is the very last operational Tiger I in the world! Choose from the two bundles below and add this legend to your collection!

 

i have the tank and i did very good games with it... if you dont have too much money  for a decent crew trainer this one can be very good .... the gun let you down a bit though ( although for a tier 6 it isnt bad) .... now back to that history part .... other tigers  ,Maus , IS 3 and .... are part of history too... and the one i have is only a virtual version so whats the difference between this one and a normal tiger in game?

This one is tier 6, the tech tree one is tier 7. Tiger 131 is premium, so it can train any german heavy crews. And it comes with a special paintjob (that looks pretty sweet). There are also a few visual differences.

 

The main differences are that the tier 7 tech tree Tiger I when elited has amazing DPM and very good pen with standard rounds. The Tiger 131, being a tier 6, has a lower DPM gun with much lower pen.

The moment I want to start a German heavy line, but just cba to start from scratch with crew you guys decide to sell a free BiA crew tank! :) Well timed!

 

Already owned the tank for its crew, but those went to the Leopard and LT.. :)  Got 3900 gold, a garage slot and 5 BiA crew for €15.99.

It's funny that the T34-85M medium tank has more effective armour than the Tiger 131 heavy tank on the same tier *, says enough about this game if you ask me.

 

*With the exception of the front of the turret but no one in their right mind shoots the front of the turret.

The Tiger 131 would have been a perfect reward for the mini-marathon that we just had :(

 

Or even better, if we were allowed to decide for ourselves which tank we want, since I realise just because I like the Tiger 131 doesn't mean everyone else does ;)

Yup, already owned one from last year as well and does well when top or even mid tier. Struggles in T8 games, but then I just go support MTs. Just bought a second one as well for crew & gold. My PzIIIE is happy.

Bought one for the crew, since all my German heavies are premiums, so I might just convert it to a medium tank crew. Now, please give a Rudy next time!

​"Sloped armor" can make a real difference you know...
