THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF YOUR TIGER TANK
This late Tiger model, with its characteristic bogie wheels, is based on those that were produced from January 1944. This battle tank was deployed on the Western Front at the beginning of 1944 and also on the Eastern Front from mid-1944. Thereafter, the tanks were withdrawn several times from the front and deployed inside Germany.
