Development of the Tiger I was started in 1937 by the Henschel company. Mass production began in 1942, with an eventual total of 1354 vehicles manufactured. The tank first saw combat in the fighting for Leningrad, and Tigers were at the forefront of battles from Tunisia to Kursk. Although production was discontinued in the summer of 1944, the Tiger I continued to see action until the end of the war.
This was the first German heavy tank in WWII and proved itself to be extremely formidable against the Allied forces, composed primarily of M4 Shermans and T-34s. In the game you'll face much higher tier opponents. This tank was designed as a sniper. Keep that in mind and make use of its great rate of fire and renowned German-engineered accuracy. Spot your enemy, avoid close combat, hit your target, relocate, and hit them again. Snipe the enemy and support your team. The Pz.Kpfw. VI Tiger leads to the Pz.Kpfw. Tiger II.
