Model History

After encountering the T-34s and KVs the program was sped up even further. In August 1942 contracts were issued to Porsche and Henschel to produce designs for the heavy tank.
Porsche had been working on three prototypes by late 1942 that mounted the Krupp 88 mm KwK 43 L/56. These were designated the Panzer Tiger P2. The vehicles were never finished as the transmission required large amounts of copper, which was in short supply.
The Henschel prototypes were called the Tiger H3. It was plagued by frequent changes in the design specifications. In January 1943, Hitler, ordered the prototypes to have 185 mm/7.3" armor on the front and 80 mm /3.2" on the sides. Other modifications were made to standardize the parts with the Panther II project.
In October 1942, Henschel was contracted to produce 176 vehicles mounting the 88 mm PaK 43/3 L/71. The Porsche model was cancelled in November 1942, and Henschel`s contract was changed to build 526 tanks.
The first 50 vehicles had the Porsche turret from the cancelled Tiger P2 project. The turret was more rounded in front and the commander`s cupola was offset on the left. After these turrets were installed, it was decided to discontinue them as it was thought the rounded front could deflect enemy rounds down into the top of the chassis.
Three pre-production vehicles were completed in December 19438, and the first three production vehicles were delivered in January 1944. At first, production at the Kassel production line had Tigers and King Tigers being produced side by side. By June 1944, only King Tigers were being produced. Five bombing raids against the factory between September 22 and November 7, 1944, almost completely destroyed it.
