Easy Model 1/72 Scale Henschel Sd.Kfz.181, Tiger, German Amry, sPzDiv 912

Overview

The Tiger I was one of the most heavily armed and armoured tanks of WWII, as well as, a formidable opponent of Allied tanks. The Tiger was essentially still at the prototype stage when first hurried into service, and therefore, changes (both small and large) were made throughout the production run. Production of the Tiger I began in August 1942, and 1,355 were built by August 1944, when production ceased. The Tiger was first used in action in September 1942 near Leningrad.

Henschel Sd.Kfz.181 Tiger

Production of the Tiger began in August 1942, and by August 1944 1,355 of these tanks had been built. The 88mm main gun was the most powerful anti-tank gun in use by any army. The superior mobility of Allied tanks allowed them to attack from behind or from the side in the hope of taking a Tiger down. The influence of Tiger tanks on allied morale grew to almost mythical proportions, and was known as Tigerphobia. Tigers destroyed tremendous amounts of enemy equipment and often just the sight of a Tiger would induce the Russian tankers to withdraw.
