The Patchwork Tiger
 
Pz.Kpfw. VI 'Tiger I' Ausf. E
 

Everything is missing. No replenishment. No spare parts. What now?

To build a new tank from many parts of defective vehicles is almost impossible. But it's worth a try. Nobody wants to give up.

A crane was borrowed from the nearby airfield. Or should we rather say stolen. But this is too weak to lift the tank turret. But the gun barrel and the motor could be exchanged with his help.

There is still a lot to do. But step by step the Patchwork Tiger is created. Not really a beauty, but powerful ... and dangerous to the enemy.

Tank history:

55 tons, up to 700 horsepower, 100 mm frontal armor, 80 mm side armor, 8.8 cm KwK 36 L/56 and much more. A legend in steel! The most powerful tank of the second world war. The Tiger!

In 1942 serial production began at Henschel in Kassel. By the end of production in August 1944, Henschel built 1355 tigers.

The first use of the tiger took place on 29 August 1942 at Leningrad. A disaster. 3 of the 4 used tigers either remained stuck in the ground or failed due to technical problems.

After this experience special tactics were developed for the use of heavy tanks. Known technical imperfections on the tank have been resolved. After that, the tiger became a very dreaded weapon ... and a legend!
