Tiger I is a German heavy tank.

Description

The Tiger I is the first German tank to be equipped with the 88mm KwK 36 gun. Commonly and simply referred as the "Tiger", the heavy tank was a departure from early German tank designs, which balanced mobility, armour, and firepower. The Tiger emphasised firepower and armour, making it a formidable opponent in armoured warfare. Apart from its powerful KwK 36 gun, it is also armed with two MG 34 machine guns: one in the coaxial mount, and one in the front of the hull.

There are early and late production versions of the tank. They can be distinguished by the differences in the cupola, road wheels, as well as the absence of Feifel filters in the later versions. The two versions perform the same in the mod.

It first appears in late 1942, and fights in various theatres until the end of the war. It also appears as part of or in aid for other Axis nations, such as Italy and Hungary.
