The Tiger was hurried into action on the Russian front as a response to the heavier Soviet tanks that had caught the Wehrmacht unawares. Its massive square body and rounded turret was an intimidating sight to enemy tankers. The armour was tremendously thick and made of quality steel, making it largely invulnerable, at least frontally, to anti-tank fire.

Its hard hitting 88mm gun was a deadly weapon, effective against enemy tanks up to three kilometres away and also firing a lethal high explosive shell.

At 52 tons the Tiger was sluggish but its broad tracks ensured a reasonable cross country performance. Its crews were specially trained as it was an expensive machine to build and maintain. A well trained veteran crew of five men could take on several enemy tanks with a reasonable chance of defeating them all, with little danger to the crew or tank.

Tigers were normally formed into separate heavy tank battalions and parcelled out by the high command wherever they were most needed, their presence  normally being enough to tip the balance in that sector. Fortunately for the allies they were too little and too late, but some Tiger commanders like Otto Carius and the legendary Michael Wittmann ran up astounding tallies of allied tanks and guns.

As with the other Bolt Action plastic vehicles, this kit is highly detailed yet easy to build. It provides a rugged gaming piece and will also appeal to painters and modellers.
