The Tiger Ace and its crew are the veterans of countless battles. Through experience, they have become experts at knocking out enemy tanks and living to tell the tale. This Tiger commander emphasizes caution and awareness over speed.

Effective against all targets. Weak against massed anti tank weapons.

Overview[]

The Tiger tank ( PanzerKampfwagen VI ) , was a German built heavy tank used during the second world war on both the western and eastern fronts.

This version comes with rank 3 Veterancy and a unique yellow-stripe paint scheme. The Tiger Ace is only available to the Elite Troops Doctrine commander, and its final call-in unit . To balance its game-turning capabilities, calling in the Tiger Ace bears a 90% fuel income penalty and a 25% manpower income penalty until it is destroyed. As such it should only be called in during critical points of a battle, whether a desperate defence against an armoured spearhead or decisive breakthrough against enemy defences.

Weapons[]

Identical to the 88mm cannon of the Tiger, it performs as what would be expected of this gun: a major threat to any vehicle, tank, or infantry within range. The pintle-mounted MG42 and the other machineguns mounted on this tank give it a degree of protection and offensive capability against nearby infantry.
