The Tiger I was a German heavy tank of World War II that operated beginning in 1942 in Africa and in the Soviet Union, usually in independent heavy tank battalions. It gave the German Army its first armoured fighting vehicle that mounted the 8.8 cm KwK 36 gun (derived from the 8.8 cm Flak 36). 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944.
This Waterson’s Forces Of Valor model represents a Tiger I #100 from the 505th Heavy Panzer Battalion during the Battle of Kursk July 1943. The Schwere Panzer-Abteilung 505 was formed in January 1943. It was assigned to 9. Armee and fought at Kursk and after Kursk it was attached to Heeresgruppe Mitte and fought at Smolensk. It was refitted with Tiger II (Königstiger) tanks in September 1944 and fought with 24. Panzer-Division and 5. Panzer-Division in East Prussia until the end of the war.
This Tiger I is great addition to your historical tank collection.
