German industry first began working on heavy tank designs in 1937. When the German Panzers in Russia encountered the Soviet T-34's and KV-1's in 1941 it was all too apparent that a new heavy tank was needed. Ultimately, this resulted in a specification for a 45-ton tank with an 88mm gun, heavy armor, speed and maneuverability. Production was ordered to start in August 1942. It began at a rate of 25 tanks per month and peaked in April 1944 at a rate of 104 per month. It took 300,000 man hours to build one Tiger, almost twice as much time as a Panther required.
The design program had been known as the Tigerprogram and in March of '42 the Germans began referring to the panzer as the Tiger. The early production Tigers had rather tall commander cupolas which used bullet proof glass as its vision ports. Other visible characteristics were a top opening commander’s hatch, smoke discharges on the turret sides, rubber rimmed road wheels, dual headlights and Feifel air cleaners.

Simply outstanding . Detail is amazing. These things are such fun to. You can change the frequency using a 27 MHz crystal set. I bought 2 Shermans a KV-1 and a Tiger. The battle mode is great - 2 sermons vs 1 tiger is a winner!!This is the first vstank I have purchased. I didn't know what to expect but when I got it home I was surprised.
The quality is really great. All the functions work exactly like they are suppose to and just as described.
I would recommend this tank and all vstank pro models with the stick controller. The buttons on the older controllers have to many buttons to deal with. The new ones are very simple and smooth.I got this tank two weeks ago and having a great time with it. I also purchased the accessories kit and painted some of the parts. This makes for a great scale look.
Definitely vstank pro with the new controller.
You can't beat the price.
