Eduard Profipack 1:35 - Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf. B Tiger II - Plastic model kit #3715

The Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, commonly known as Tiger II was a German heavy tank of WWII. It was first used on 11 July 1944 by the 503rd Heavy Panzer Battalion during the Allied Invasion of Normandy.

The Tiger II was produced in relatively small numbers - Allied bombing severely disrupted the production and caused the loss of over 600 tanks when the floor area of the Henschel plant was destroyed. Just under 500 Tiger II's were produced from 1943 til 1945.

The successor of the Tiger I, the Tiger II weighed almost 70 tonnes and was armed with an 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon. The tank's thick frontal armour and powerful long-range gun gave it a significant advantage against Western Allied and Soviet tanks.
