This is a late-production Tiger with a low cupola and steel road-wheels. It has many of the characteristics of the last Tigers built such as the new turret roof and hatch, crane mounting points, central headlamp and monocular gunner’s sight. It appears, however, to have an older style, large muzzle-brake. This is not fitted correctly which may indicate that it is not original.
It is fitted with transport track and coated with Zimmerit anti-magnetic mine paste. It is missing its idler wheel on the right hand side and the right hand track has instead been “half-tracked” around the roadwheels. There are signs of battle damage on the nose. [Preserved Tanks in France: Number 74].
