World War II in Pictures: Tiger Tanks

A look at the German heaviest tanks of World War II, the Tiger I, Tiger II King Tiger, and the Maus Panzer VIII.

Operation "Citadel", Russia, June 1943: Crew members of Panzer VI (Tiger I) perform engine maintenance. The Tiger was famous for its engineering complexity and the often sensitive motor. Fixing even small problems required considerable training, which, as the war advanced, it became scarce due to time pressures and replenishment manpower needs. "Great in battle - when it worked."

Operation Citadel – performing routine maintenance on the Maybach engine. The crew of the Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger had to be skilled mechanics as well as fighters.
