When the Tiger was introduced in 1942 it was a weapon of un-equalled performance and protection; there was little the Allies in Tunisia or Russia could do to knock them out. It had its disadvantages (it was slow and a little unreliable to start with), but at the time its clear advantages outweighed these.

The production model Henschel Tiger I E had 100mm of front armour on both its hull and turret, 80mm on its rear and sides, and 25mm of top armour. None of the armour was particularly well sloped, but it had lots of it. Its 8.8cm gun had already proved itself in combat as a lethal anti-armour weapon. Production of the Tiger I began in July 1942 and continued through till August 1944 with over 1300 built.
