1944- German PzKw VI Tiger II (King Tiger)

Armament:       I - 88mm gun KwK 43 L/71
                            2 - 7.92mm MG
Engine:             Maybach HL230P30, V-12 gas, 700 hp
Speed:              22 mph
Range:             75 miles
Crew:                5
Weight:             75 tons

Captured in Luxembourg. Most powerful tank in service in 1944.
Mechanically unreliable.  Heavy and underpowered. Equipped 
with a new 8.8 cm gun. Heavy sloped armor gives it improved
protection. Designed for defensive warfare or to break through
strong defenses. Turret is unusually long to accommodate the
new gun. When buttoned up the tank is very blind. A weakness.
