i have noticed that a Tiger with his 88 does far more damage than a flak 18 using AT shells. Thats kinda strange, maybe it depends on the ammo, but i think they are just the same. i tested that with a IS2 on NZEF Berlin Outskirts- a shot with a tiget takes 1/3 or even 1/2 of the IS2 health, so 2-4 shots to destroy it (if shot on front body, not on turret) and a flak 18 takes 5-7 shots to destroy it.

Wrong, the guns shoot exactly the same projectil in code, so the damage is the same, too.

No, the King Tiger's gun is more powerfull then the stationary 88 (which is similar to the tiger's gun)

Most stationary 88's where L\56, such as the one used in the Tiger. It has velocity but it is still slow compaired to the King Tiger. The KT had an 88mm KWK 43 L\71. It is a completly different gun. It also has a much higher velocity, which basicaly could mean more penetration at range.

Eh...I thought the Tiger was a shortened version of the stationary 88, and the KT was the one mounting the full version, thus making it equal to the stationary.

The 88 gun on the Tiger has no KwK number, which leads me to believe that it IS the origional 88 used for stationary placements. However, the gun on the King Tiger is a KwK43, which means it was developed around 1943.

Tiger I uses a 88mm L/56 KwK36 and it is basically the FLAK 18/36 modified to mount in a vehicle and carry a muzzle brake.

There was also a stationary A/T gun version of the 88mm L/71. It used a FLAK 18 style 4 leg stand or a 150mm howitzer stand.
