Sd.Kfz. 186, Panzerjäger VI, (Jagdtiger)

German Jagdpanzer VI are also known as the Jagdtiger and was the heaviest armored vehicle during WW II in operational usage. It is designed as a heavy tank destroyer to stop Allied heavy tanks. Its front armor was thicker than that of the King Tiger (Tiger II) and the tank was weighing over 70 tons. This was exactly the weak point of the tank, the Maybach engine and transmission were too weak for the King Tiger, let alone to the heavier Jagdtiger. Many were already eliminated by mechanical problems before they Russian or American heavy tanks were in sight. It's weight was also a major problem with rapid advances, many bridges and roads could not withstand the weight of the Jagdtiger.
