The 63-ton Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger was a German heavy tank employed during WWII from mid-1942 to mid-1944, when it was phased out in favor of the Königstiger. Although similar to a Panzer IV, it has much heavier armor and a super-powerful, highly-accurate 88mm main gun. It has a number of major weaknesses, including chronic track failures, expensiveness to maintain, and a tendancy to become immobilized in cold conditions. Besides its 88m main gun, it's equipped with two MG34s, one turret-mounted and one bow-mounted. The vehicle has a length of 21 feet, a width of 12 feet, a height of 10 feet, and a crew of five: A commander, gunner, loader, driver, and assistant driver. The tank has an operational range of 120 miles.

Multiattack. The tank makes two MG34 attacks.

88mm Antitank Cannon: Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 1,000/3,000 ft., one target. Hit: 20d10 piercing damage. The 88mm antitank cannon has the reload (10 shots) property. Targets with natural armor or worn armor take a penalty to AC against the 88mm Antitank Cannon determined by referencing their AC against the following table:

AC AC Penalty
12-13 −1
14-15 −2
16-17 −3
18-19 −4
20+ −5

MG34 General-Purpose Machine Gun: Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 300/900 ft., one target. Hit: 5d8 piercing damage. The MG34 General-Purpose Machine Gun has the burst fire and reload (250 shots) properties.

A Panzer VI Tiger is typically equipped with 9,200 rounds of MG34 ammunition and 88 75mm shells.

Panzerkampfwagen VI Königstiger (King Tiger)[edit]

The King Tiger is basically the same as the Tiger, the main differences being in the transmission, suspension, automotive, and ease-of-maintenance features. You can use the same statistics as the Tiger to represent it in play. Just remember that it is a lot cheaper to maintain, it doesn't break down so easily, and it doesn't freeze solid in the cold, and you should be good.
