Konig/Royal Tiger!! Or tiger II by some refs.

That has the porche design turret of which only few were made. Production went to henschel after.
Too bad as Porsche had an electric/diesel design but was thought to be only fer u-boot service.

Taken from the GI field manual, Page 44a. "Sticky bomb"

1.) Take off your sock.
2.) Stuff it full of nades and plastic.
3.) rig a simple fuse.
4.) Coat the sock in axel greese.
5.) Go out in a blaze of glory.

It's Tiger II or Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.B.

The German unofficial name was K√¬∂nigstiger, which means bengal's tiger or something like that.

I think names like King Tiger or especially Royal Tiger are kind of lame, just like the "Panzer Mark X"-names.

Bengals Tiger LOL..that was funny!

Konig in German means King.
Konigen means Queen.

KonigsTiger translates directly as KING Tiger.
