Product Description

BB006 German Tiger I, 1st Co 301st Heavy Panzer Battalion
  
First Legion is extremely pleased to present a winter rendition of our Tiger I with set BB006 Tiger "111" from the 301st Heavy Tank Battalion.   The Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf. E mounted the very high powered 8.8cm KwK 36 main armament which had a flat trajectory owing to the high muzzle velocity making it extremely accurate at very long ranges.   With 100mm of frontal armor it was difficult for allied guns to penetrate.   This tank remained in production until August 1944 when it was replaced by the Tiger II.   Given its combat history, the "Tiger" is one of the most iconic tanks of the second world war.    Though there were only a few Tiger I's present during the Battle of the Bulge limited to two different heavy tank battalions, we couldn't resist giving this iconic tank a proper winter treatment and making it available for our new series.
