Intresting, Tiger works much better at tier 6, the armour works a bit better, gun is and the HP pool is good. I recomened for buyers, i have HT No VI instead but they are the same tank effectively. 

 

Plus you get a lovely historical tank with an excellent tank model.

And a 0-skill BiA crew on top, which is why the Tiger 131 is a better buy than the HT no. VI (unless you need a Japanese HT crew trainer ;))

Replaced "Jap" with "Japanese", as the former is considered an offensive slur.

Wot has failed to fulfill its destiny because of betrayal of true nature of German tanks.

Was on sale very recently.

 

Oh and why has this sale not had the 10% discount applied to it?

Other recent premium tank offers have had the 10% discount applied, so why not this one?

I agree with the first part. I have both tanks but I still do prefer Tiger 131 over HT No VI just for the looks of it and history behind. :)

The documentary about the making of the film Fury revolved around Tiger 131 being used in the filming and imho was far more interesting to watch than the movie will ever be.  The reaction of the very protective Bovington Tank Museum curators when Tiger 131 rolled into action is worth a watch.  Their elation watching her doing what she was designed to do was amazing.

I bought the tank on 1st July for the price of £13.68. It was the Tank Museum support package, which was the same as this basic package as far as I am aware.
Now the price is £12.53, which is NOT a 10% reduction. 10% should be £12.31. So, I don't think it has been reduced.

It was really good to watch, both the movie and the documentary. I would highly recommend everyone who hasn't watched it yet. Thanks for the good reminder kind, sir! :)

How about a pen buff on those german 8.8s. 145mm on tier 6 HTs and TDs looks pretty disappointing.
