Interesting Tiger site:

I'd never actually seen the Tigerfibel manual, quite an interesting curiousity. All those pictures of half dressed ladies is probably the last thing you should be thinking about while on the front, but I guess it keeps them interested in the manual!

Does anyone reading this know why the Tiger was designed without sloping armor in the front? Can you imagine its battlefield endurance if it had been built like the t-34, with sloping armor?

The design of the Tiger 1 is basically a big PzKw IV... or at least the design philosophy. The first tank to barrow from the T-34's design pilosophy is the PzKw V Panther.
