Product Description

NOR069 German Tiger I, 1st Co 101st Heavy Panzer Battalion

 

This item is only available from First Legion directly. Unfortunately they have chosen to cut out the dealers for this item. 

 

First Legion is extremely pleased to present another variant of our Tiger Tank for the battle of Normandy, set NOR069 Tiger I "123", again from the 101st Heavy Panzer Battalion, but this time from the 1st Company.   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.    The second variant of the Tiger is meant to complement the first in multi-tank displays.   As such, it shares the same basic coloring and camo pattern, however the painting on it is totally unique in that the application of the pattern is completely new and different than the previous NOR068 Tiger.  So it is not simply a new Turret Number, but is an entirely new painted vehicle that used a 2nd painted master as the basis for it.   It features battle damaged fenders and additional stowage as well.
