Item Description

Krupp received an order in 1942 to design a Grille Series of vehicles using components from the Tiger II. The Grille 17 was to use the 170 mm K 72 L/50 gun, with a combined weight of 53 to 58 tons. It was also planned to convert Grille 17 into Grille 21 armed with 210 mm Mortar 18/1 L/31. In 1943/44, production of the Grille 17 prototype was begun, while full-scale production was to start in mid-1945. The end of the war cancelled any further development. The Grille 21 did not enter production.

These vehicles had the main armament mounted on a rail platform inside the hull allowing it to be dismounted anytime. Each variant was also armed with two 7.92mm machine guns. These vehicles would be operated by the crew of eight (driver, commander, gunner, radio operator and four loaders).

Powered by Maybach HL230P30 or HL230P45, Grille would be able to travel at maximum speed of 45 km/h with range of 250 km. Fuel capacity was to be 1000 liters. Grille was 13 meters long (with gun), 3.27 meters wide and 3.15 meters high. Its armor protection ranged from 16 mm (side) to 30 mm (front). Grille 21 weighted 52700 kg and carried 3 rounds of ammunition. One prototype with the 170 mm gun was almost completed in May of 1945 and was captured by British troops at Haustenbeck near Paderborn.
