The Tiger Ausf. B combined the pros and cons of German tank design and construction, and the background to the vehicles design, construction and development can be found in the excesses and disadvantages of earlier vehicles. This then, is the tank that allows us to evaluate what the German tank industry achieved through the war and what might have happened had the industry continued to develop.
