Tiger Tank Deployment

The Tiger tank, officially designated as Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.E, was a German heavy tank that saw extensive action during World War II. Its deployment began in 1942, serving on the Eastern and Western Fronts.

The Tiger tank was renowned for its armor protection and the superior firepower provided by its 88mm gun, making it one of the most feared tanks of the war. Despite its strengths, the Tiger faced challenges such as mechanical reliability issues and the high cost of production, limiting the number of units deployed.

Throughout its service, the Tiger tank was involved in major battles including Kursk, Normandy, and the Bulge, proving its effectiveness in combat but also highlighting its vulnerabilities. The legacy of the Tiger tank continues to be studied and admired for its engineering and battlefield performance.
