A mighty Tiger Tank 131 back on the move again after 70 years

With its huge cannon and almost impenetrable armour, the German Tiger tank struck fear into the hearts of Allied troops.

Although more than 1,300 were produced during the Second World War, this is the only working example in existence.

Tiger 131 has been restored to its original war time specification after a two-year restoration project costing £80,000.

The Tiger was superior to anything the British and Americans had until near the end of war.

Rounds from Allied tanks could not penetrate its thick armour, while its 88mm cannon had huge destructive power. The tank soon gained legendary status after its introduction in 1942.


p/s: Tiger was invicible back then. No allied tanks can beat the Tiger. One solution to beat the Tiger is to surround the Tiger with a lot of Sherman tanks in order to immobilize the Tiger.
