The German Tiger I, is said to have been one of the strongest tanks during World War II. Among the variations, at the end of 1942, the early type was sent to Tunisia as a reinforcement to the African Corps led by General Rommel and appeared for the first time in front of the British and American Allied Forces. Features include pistol ports on both sides, a uniquely shaped turret with miscellaneous goods box, a bent front fender, and a slightly angular exhaust pipe cover. Its formidable 88mm gun could destroy the Allied Sherman main battle tank from over 2000m.
