    tiger-11

    Made by Henschel Tiger design a new tank-11 (Royal Tiger) was completed by October 1943 First issued models were equipped with the tower, designed by Porsche, but after the first 50 samples of steel tanks made entirely Henschel. Tank was like a panther and used the same engine, although its heavier armor, invulnerable for most of the weapons allies, led to the worst ratio power / weight and, consequently, to the loss of speed and mobility. The main problem of the Tigris-H was unreliable. Many tanks crews visited thrown when the undercarriage broke or running out of gas, as a very large size and weight of the tank makes it difficult to tow it. Tiger-11 took the first fight on the Eastern Front in May 1944 years.6 and fought in Normandy in the autumn of the same year.
