Supertest: Otto Carius’ Tiger 217 Tier 6 Premium German Heavy Tank

This is the Tiger which the famous German tanker, Otto Carius, commanded. We now have both major Tiger I variants as premiums. The Tiger 131 being a Tiger I Ausf H and the Tiger 217 being a Tiger I Ausf E.

In April 1944, Otto Carius got the Tiger tank no. 217 under his command. He commanded it only until July 1944 because of his battle wounds. The tank itself was blown up under Baltyisk (Pillau) in 1945 because it was unfit for further duty.
