I bet Tiger could still cut it today conquering some banana republic with ease.

I am German and I am still wondered why this Tank become so famous... I mean it couldn´t change the war... The Panther was technical better because of its weight it was more reliable... but more famous and respected is the Tiger^^

It was deadly because of its 88 mm long-ranging main canon that could fire at a distance at over 2000 yards.

Bad news. The Tiger in Sweden is actually a replica. Only just found that out. But I think the Tiger in Russia is real

Agreed always liked the look of this tank. Not something I would have wanted to tangle with in combat. Glad there is still one in working order...

Nice image.

Tiger 131 was a rare prize for the Allies, IRC, it took a penetrating hit that scared the crap out of the crew and caused them to abandon the tank, Allied forces promptly closed in and captured it intact; the hit had only damaged the hull, so 131 was promptly shipped to Britain and run through numerous tests to see just what this new terror weapon could really do; because of this, very little restoration was ever needed.

To me, it looks like the gun barrel is bowed a little bit. Great looking tiger tank. Makes me want to go play world of tanks.

Could be an optical illusion caused by the background bits? I do see what you mean though! Thanks for looking.

unless the barrel or mantel is cracked or the barrel is blocked.   I think the metal could take the stress of firing.  it is the short 88 not the L71 so the muzzle pressure is less.   Either way......damn nice photo of a damn scary tank.

One from Kubinka Tank museum in Russia is also running. Only it was last turned on about 30 years ago ;p
I'm not certain if the one from Musée des Blindés is "operational" but it is also in very good condition.
