Waffen arsenal 1

Bewaffnung – ausrustung und einzatz der streitkrafte im zweiten weltkrieg, 

The Tiger I, a German heavy tank, in service from 1942 to 1945, is one of the best-known tanks of World War II, although it was little produced compared to the Soviet T-34 or the American Sherman. It is its dimensions, its very square lines, its resistance to combat, its power as well as the experienced crews that led it to the fire that have marked the spirits, especially because of German propaganda. Its development began in 1937 and, when it first appeared on the front on August 29, 1942, near Leningrad, the Tiger I was the most technically advanced, best protected and most powerful tank aligned by the Axis, displaying limited but exceptional mobility for a craft that was more than twice the weight of its predecessors and the majority of its tracked opponents. But the heavy tank, in addition to its low production, has suffered throughout its career from its very fragile mechanics considerably reducing its availability to fire, its operational implementation made difficult by its low autonomy, also suffering from its excessive weight. Built in only 1,350 copies, it was only rarely divided but rather engaged in independent units.
