Eduard 1:35 German Pz. Kpfw. VI Ausf. B Tiger II


The Tiger II was a German heavy tank of WW2. The last official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, often shortened to Tiger B. It is also known under the informal name Königstiger ("Bengal Tiger"), often translated as King Tiger or Royal Tiger by Allied troops.

The Tiger II was the successor of the Tiger I, adding the Tiger I's thick armour with the sloped armour used on the Panther tank. The tank weighed almost seventy tonnes, it was protected by 100 - 180mm (3.9 to 7.1 inches) of armour at the front, and was armed with the long barrelled Kampfwagenkanone 8.8cm 43 L/71 gun.

The Tiger II was developed late in the war and built in relatively small numbers, with only 1500 Tiger II's actually ordered — this was marginally higher than the 1,347 of the earlier Tiger I tanks actually produced — but the Tiger II production was severely disrupted by Allied bombing.

The chassis was also the basis for the Jagdtiger tank destroyer.
