The Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausf. B Tiger II was an improved version of the heavy armored car VI Tiger, which was introduced in 1942. Both types differed mainly in the shape of the front armor: in the Tiger II this was – as also with the somewhat smaller middle combat armor Panther – continuously inclined , while the Tiger I with its partly vertical armor rather resembled the older German tanks. The unofficial German name “Königstiger” was often translated by Western soldiers as “Royal Tiger” or “King Tiger” . Up to the end of the war, 492 specimens were built, with the production temporarily overlapping with the former tiger variant.
