Warlord Games have added another version of the King Tiger to their webstore which will be a handy addition to any German army in Bolt Action. This tweaked tank comes with a Porsche Turret and there are also some alternatives for a Henchel bodied version too…
“Two turret designs were used in production. Both were designed and made by Krupp and, after Henchel were awarded the contract, the prototype Porsche parts were given to other projects.
As the first Henchel chassis rolled off the production line the only available turret was the one destined originally for the rejected Porsche project.”
“Fifty Porsche turrets were mounted to Henschel’s hull and used in action until the Henchel turret variant production came online to replace it.”
You can see some of the other designs and learn more about the tanks over on the Warlord Games website. The Tiger Tank is certainly a fearsome vehicle to face across the battlefield and it is also an awesome looking tank!
What do you think?
