EDIT: Should have taken a screenshot as I just refreshed the page and the note that stated that the Tiger 131 will be available in the premium store has been removed... Maybe somebody included a little bit too much information?:teethhappy:

What again? already got it but I do like it though, is there any difference in overall performance to the 131 and the normal tech tree tiger?

Dunno, not that far along the German tech tree (still mainly on US & UK lines). But I do need a new German HT crew, so I will probably buy another Tiger 131 for the Berlin crew. :P

Very much - the Tech Tree Tiger is Tier 7, this one Tier 6. Different Gun, Different Matchmaking...

It's historical correct. So it have the shorter 88 mm gun and less engine horse power other than that they are pretty similar.

Tiger 131 is more like the "historical" Tiger I.

 

It's alright and a typical tier 6 heavy tank - decent as top tier but pretty bad against tier 7/8 tanks.

 

Also, tanks like T-34-85M will eat it for break fast.

T7 Tech Tree Tiger has an amazing top gun.

 

The long 88 is one of the best in that MM bracket for DPM and accuracy.

 

Would rather WG sold Berlin tanks again as I need a Rasha BiA crew to start a new line.

Most notably, the Tiger I has;

Over 250 extra DPM

58 Extra Pen

20 Extra Alpha

.04 extra accuracy

227 extra shell velocity (131's is a noticeably slow 773)

1 degree worse depression

550 extra HP

 

While I've not played the Tiger I, I imagine the playstyle is more or less the same - except one tier higher.

I don't have the 131, but it's 99.99% the same as the Jap Tiger. As the radio is the only difference. But it's almost the same. Since it's one tier lower, the armor can work better. So when top tier you can be a bit more aggressive and use the DPM vs the tier 7 Tiger. That is more on the support tank side IMO. It was terrible before the buffs with 132 pen and the old MM when you faced 10 tier 8 targets at times. Gold pen was 170 ish to iirc. Or vs the O-I even. So after the buffs it's easier to play it more aggressive vs a pure 2nd line HT when top tier. As more of your shots actually do damage, even if you fling gold vs tier 8's. As 194 pen is not terrible either.
