Today soldiers we are up against our greatest threat, the Germans have let out the tigers to play with.
Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today's news item is no doubt the most requested and anticipated vehicle for Forgotten Hope 2, so without further ado we would like to present the Tiger! As you can tell from its sand-colored skin, this is the early Tiger I model, which was used in North Africa. In patch 2.15 you will be able to find this vehicle on the Mareth Line map. The Tiger was modeled by K96, skinned by Toddel and coded by ctz.
The development of the Tiger I started in May 1941, when the order was given to Porsche and Henschel to design a heavy tank that used the 88mm KwK L/56. Over a year later in July 1942 when both prototypes were tested the Henschel Tiger proved to be the better one and was approved for production. Only two Heavy Tank Battalions (the 501st and 504th) equipped with Tigers were sent to North Africa, having only 20 Tigers each. Although the first of these Tigers arrived in November of 1942, the last of them were still waiting to be shipped in Sicily when the Axis forces in North Africa Surrendered. Despite their small numbers, the Tigers in North Africa left a lasting impression on the allies forces.
