Item DescriptionTiger I is the common name of a German heavy tank used in World War II, developed in 1942. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E, often shortened to Tiger. It was an answer to the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armour encountered in the initial months of Operation Barbarossa, particularly the T-34 and the KV-1. The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first tank mounting the 88 mm gun, which had previously demonstrated its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts. It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable.

The last of Tamiyas Tiger I models. It was and still is the only model of this Tiger prod. type. Like all Tamiya models it is an excellant easy to build kit and builds into a beautiful model. The only down side in the kit is you will have to buy a after market metal gun barrel and link and length track.
