About the Tiger I Early Production
Equipped with the awesome 88mm main gun, 100mm thick armor at the front, 80mm armor on the sides, and a 650hp Maybach engine, the Tiger I is widely renowned as a highly innovative and incredibly powerful tank. Henschel produced over 1,300 Tiger I heavy tanks during the period of the war, ranging from initial production to modified late production models.

The approximately 200 models produced from November 1942 to June 1943 are characterized as early production models, possessing distinctive features like the large cylinder shaped cupola with a smoke discharger and pistol ports on the turret. The Tiger I first saw action against the Soviets near Leningrad, and went on to serve with distinction on the Eastern, Western, Italian and African fronts, gaining the fear and respect of its Allied foes.
