Tiger I E (Zimmerit)
In Flames Of War
Even it the later phase of the war the Tiger remains a formidable weapon with thick armoured and a gun that can deal with any enemy put before it.
In Flames Of War you can field Tigers as support for most German companies in platoons of up to four tanks, and even as part of a Radio-control Tank Platoon (p. 49, Fortress Europe). The Tiger I E is Fully-tracked and has Wide tracks. It is, however, a Slow tank (Cross-country speed is reduced to 8”/20cm). It is a hard nut to crack with armour of Front 9, Side 8 and Top 2. It is armed with Co-ax and Hull MGs and has Protected ammo. Its main gun is the formidable 8.8cm KwK36 gun with an excellent range of 40”/100cm, ROF 2, AT 13 and FP 3+. The big gun and heavy armoured turret give it a Slow traverse.
On top of these great features is also has the Tiger Ace skills available (p. 168, Flames Of War).
