The new COBI King Tiger VI should include 2 figures and all the markings are pad printed so stickers are not necessary. This is a new COBI Königstiger 2540 set and should not be confused with he prior COBI Tiger II set here. The COBI King Tiger II will have some very detailed parts including new, more realistic side skirting parts. There are also numerous accessories much like their upcoming Sherman Easy eight set. This is an encouraging trend that we are seeing in new COBI Tank sets and we cannot wait to see how this new COBI King Tiger II turns out once we have more than just digital renders. We believe the set will be available something this fall.

King Tiger PzKpfw VI History:
The Tiger II is a German heavy tank of the Second World War. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, often shortened to Tiger B. The ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 182. It is also known under the informal name Königstiger (the German name for the Bengal tiger), often translated literally as Royal Tiger, or somewhat incorrectly as King Tiger by Allied soldiers
The Tiger II was the successor to the Tiger I, combining the latter’s thick armour with the armour sloping used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost 70 tonnes, and was protected by 100 to 185 mm (3.9 to 7.3 in) of armour to the front. It was armed with the long barrelled 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon. The chassis was also the basis for the Jagdtiger turretless Jagdpanzer anti-tank vehicle.
The Tiger II was issued to heavy tank battalions of the Army and the Waffen-SS. It was first used in combat by 503rd Heavy Panzer Battalion during the Allied invasion of Normandy on 11 July 1944 on the Eastern Front, the first unit to be outfitted with the Tiger II was the 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion, which by 1 September 1944 listed 25 Tiger IIs operational
