The introduction of this developed version of the Tiger I tank to the war in 1944 caused serious problems for the allies but ultimately it’s arrival came too late to have a significant impact on the war as a whole.

The King Tiger’s ability to knock out Allied tanks head on at ranges exceeding 2.5 kilometres with it’s 8.8cm gun caused the Allies problems on both the Western and Eastern fronts.

On the tabletop the King Tiger is a super heavy tank with an absurdly high armour rating of 11, so opponents will need the bare minimum of a medium anti-tank gun to harm it whilst shooting at the front.

Will you be picking up a platoon of these heavy hitters?
