Background[edit | edit source]

The Panzer VI "Tiger" E is a German Heavy Tank in Post Scriptum. This is Germany's most known tank. It became famous throughout the war for being an enormous threat for any of the allied tanks. Production began in August 1942 and production stopped in August 1944. Only 2 variants were produced, the Tiger Ausf. H1 and the Tiger Ausf. E.

In-game it is operated by a driver, gunner, commander and hull machine-gunner. The Tiger is armed with the 8.8 cm KwK 36 L/56 gun and two 7.92mm MG 34 light machine guns.

Of all the vehicles in Post Scriptum the Tiger E has the slowest reload speed at 10 seconds. It also has the slowest turret rotation speed, taking a full minute to turn the gun 360 degrees. This is offset by the fact that it's one of the most heavily armored tanks in the game.

The Tiger is armed with 30 APCBC shells, 15 APCR shells and 45 High Explosive shells. Plus 26 boxes of 250 rounds each for both of the MG 34s, 13 for the coax and 13 for the hull MG.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Panzer VI "Tiger" is probably the most feared tank in Post Scriptum and with good reason. For being a heavy tank the Tiger Tank is surprisingly fast. It can keep up with the Panther and the Sherman Firefly. It also turns quickly even while being stationary. Its paint scheme blends it in with the environment fairly well, but the Tiger is a wide and tall tank, which makes it pretty easy to spot out in the open.

The KwK 36 88 mm main gun is highly effective. The AP round will go through any allied tank with ease and the HE round packs a big punch against infantry and lightly skinned vehicles.

It has however a painfully slow reload time for the main gun which can let you down in tank combat. The turret rotation is also very slow. A good move is to turn the tank against the target instead of turning the turret, especially when being rushed in close.

The Tiger offers incredible armor protection and is 100% unfazed by 37 mm and 40 mm anti tank shells to its main hull and turret. When angled correctly it can fight off British 6 pounder and 17 pounder rounds. Its biggest weaknesses are the sides where the ammo is stored, so turning the tank to face the enemy is the way to go. A penetrating hit to the "cross" on either side of the hull will most likely end up being fatal for you and your crew.
