Tiger I in Action
In April 1941, two months prior to operation 'Barbarossa, ' Adolf Hitler ordered the development of a heavy tank, armed with the famed 88 mm gun. This tank became a legend in its own time. Feared by its adversaries and liked by its crews, the Tiger etched its mark in history and the legend carries on, 60 years after the end of the war.
