In combat the Tiger II was formidable. The frontal armour, at its thickest, was 185mm and the 8.8cm KwK 43 L71 could penetrate 150mm of armour at 2km and over, and had a maximum range of 10km. This resulted in its ability to destroy any Allied vehicle of the war before it could even get into range to fire back. Less than 500 Tiger II’s were produced during the war.
The first 50 tanks to be completed featured turrets which had been designed by Krupp to fit on the Porsche chassis and are often referred to as Porsche turret Tiger II’s although the turrets weren’t actually made by Porsche at all.
The model is incredibly detailed and comes with a range of stowage, spare tracks, fuel cans and a commander.
The tank featured has been painted by Neil at "Troop of Shewe", the basic kit has been added to with a few custom pieces of stowage. For a better look at the incredible tanks and vehicles that Neil has produced have a look at his website, link below.
