“For when you absolutely must have the biggest tank on the battlefield. With much greater armor and firepower, it easily dispatches smaller tanks while absorbing tremendous punishment. However it has a very high population cost and the slow rate of fire can cause it to be bogged down by overwhelming odds.”

Edit

  • The Heavy Tank Mk. 3 is most likely based of the original Henschel version of the Tiger I as it lacks any noticeable MG42 mounted on the top found in the Tiger I Ausf. E.
  • Tiger is one of the most feared tanks in the Second World War and proved itself to be extremely formidable against the Allied forces, carrying the most powerful anti-tank gun. When engaging enemy vehicles at long range, the Tiger II had an upper hand over any other vehicle in terms of the gun and armor protection.
