One of the greatest threats to the Allied armor during WWII was the powerful German Tiger I tank. It was thought that one Tiger tank had an offensive power equal to that of five Sherman tanks. The tank weighed 57 tons, had a 100mm thick frontal armor, and featured a powerful 56 caliber 88mm gun which could penetrate 100mm armor at a distance of 2,000m. Its performance allowed many tank commanders, such as Michael Wittmann, to attain "ace" status. Production began from July 1942 and over 1,300 units were produced overall, and the late production models featured improvements including a more powerful engine, periscope on the cupola, and pressed-steel road wheels.
