  1. Very cool to see one running! Totally classic tank. I gather in combat it took 5 of these to defeat a single Tiger. Of course, the Allies did build over 49,000 of them vs about 2800 Tiger I’s and II’s…

    • I have read research that claims that while the Tiger was a good tank it was actually flawed in several respects and that its biggest impact was as a terror weapon. I am not sure what I make of that.
