About the PzKfz VI King Tiger:
The Tiger II is a German heavy tank used during WWII. It was the successor to the Tiger I, combining the latter’s thick armor with the armor sloping used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost 70 tons and was protected by 100-185 mm of armor to the front. It was armed with the long barreled 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon, and the chassis was also the basis for the Jagtiger turretless tank destroyer. The Tiger II was issued to heavy tank battalions of the Army and the Waffen-SS. It was first used in combat during the Invasion of Normandy on July 11, 1944.
Development for the tank started as far back as 1937. Two design contracts were in competition for production, with Henschel officially winning and subsequently producing all Tiger IIs. Two turret designs were used in production vehicles. The Tiger II was developed late in the war and built in relatively small numbers. Orders were placed for 1,500 Tiger IIs but production was severely disrupted by Allied bombing. Only 492 units were produced by the end of the war. The Tiger II was remarkably agile for such a heavy vehicle, with contemporary German records noting the tactical mobility was as good or better than most German or Allied tanks. There are several surviving Tiger II units at museums across the world.
