The Panzer VI Tiger, also known simply as the Tiger or SdKfz 181, was a heavy tank designed and used by Germany during World War II. It is the most commonly encountered German tank in Hidden & Dangerous 2.

DescriptionEdit

The Tiger is one of the most formidable combat vehicles. The heavy KwK 36 main gun is superior to almost any of the tanks opponents. The vehicle is large and intimidating, yet frightfully expensive to manufacture. The heavy armor plating can withstand any amount of small arms fire from light and medium weapons, and can even deflect a incorrectly aimed anti-tank rocket, and places the Tiger's weight at over fifteen tons. The Tiger has a forward mounted machine gun in the hull, that is ideal for offensive manueavers and anti-infantry defense. The vehicle is powered by a 694 hp Maybach HL 230 P45 engine turning an AK 7-400 gearbox, giving it a top speed of thirty-two kph. The Tiger is unrivaled, and the only weaknesses is being slightly slower than other tanks, and its tracks are vunerable to mud and cold.

HistoryEdit

The Tiger was developed in Germany earlier in the war. Soon, upon the success of prototypes, Henschel was ordered to produce the Panzer VI Tiger design in 1942. Early Tiger designs were mount a 75 mm gun, however, this caliber of weapon proved to be inadequate for deriction tank warfare was heading, and Hitler ordered that work start on converting the FlaK 36 88 mm anti-aircraft gun into a suitable tank weapon, and thus the KwK 36 L/56 tank gun was born. Soon, variants of the Tiger appeared on the battlefields across the European and Eastern fronts, the most common variant being the Panzerjager Tiger Elefant, a tank destroyer armed with an 88 mm PaK 43/2 cannon, and later a new version of the Tiger appeared in little numbers, the Panzer VI King Tiger.
