Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausf. B Tiger II (Sd.Kfz.182), commonly referred to as the Königstiger, or “Royal Tiger,” although the translation “Bengal Tiger” is also widely accepted. It was a German heavy tank, the largest and heaviest tank used in combat during World War II. Production problems caused by the continuing disintegration of the Third Reich and constant air raids resulted in the production of only 487 units of this vehicle between January 1944 and March 1945. Tiger II was equipped with a powerful 88mm caliber gun. Thick armor, considerable weight, limited mobility, unreliable engine and destructive armament are all characteristics of this huge tank. Despite numerous flaws, the tank was extremely dangerous for any Allied unit and created panic wherever it appeared. Its fame has survived to this day and it is still an extremely recognizable tank both in the historical and pop culture sphere.
The COBI model of the Tiger II tank, made entirely of COBI construction blocks, has many movable elements such as: opening hatches, moving barrel of the cannon and rotating wheels and crawlers. One highlight of the model is the engine, which can be placed next to the tank or mounted inside the model under the openable service compartment doors. The Tiger II contains 1000 pieces, which contributes to a very solid construction and faithfully reflects the shape of its historic original. The tank is covered with high quality prints, which do not wear off even during intensive play. This realistic model will work well as a great toy for young history and armored weapons enthusiasts, but it can also be a unique element of any adult military fan’s collection. The set includes two figures of German tankers with accessories like a block with a map print, a new kind of headphones and an ammunition box. The COBI Tiger 2540 also includes a printed nameplate containing the name of the vehicle. In addition, there is a special card with vehicle statistics that can be used in the Strategic Battle Game. Its rules are available free of charge on the website: www.cobigames.com
