      The “Tiger” tanks used in the film were actually Russian T tanks which had been specially modified to look like Tiger tanks. This is apparent when you look at the suspension of the tanks (Ts used a modified Christie suspension, whereas the Tigers’ wheels were much more elaborate.). The remaining five /2 x 9 inch, three-color, two-sided sheets give range information for knocking out the KW1, Churchill, Lee, T34 and Sherman tanks. If you have an interest in Nazi tanks, Tiger tanks, World War 2 tanks or tanks in general, this is a remarkable opportunity to own what may be the very best example of a Tigerfibel in existence.
