Armor > King Tiger Tank Regiment Axis and Allies RTS

PzKpfw VI Ausf. B - Tiger II

"The tank stage is the last and most difficult stage in Axis and Allies. It requires the most micro, because not only do you have to control a plethora of units in the field, but you have to defend your base from para drops and bomber planes."
[more basic strategy]

German Tiger II near Vimoutiers, June/July 1944

When playing on maps with alot of forest or jungle King Tiger Tanks are not recommended.
The King Tiger Tank sacrifices speed and mobility to maximize firepower and armor, making it an ideal unit for direct engagement. Due to it's slow speed, in some game situations the King Tiger Tank regiment may require either artillery or air support; especially versus large numbers of arty tanks.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tiger II is the common name of a German heavy tank of the Second World War. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausf. B and the tank also had the ordnance inventory designation SdKfz 182. It is also known under the informal name Königstiger (German for the Bengal Tiger), often literally translated by the Americans as King Tiger, and by the British as Royal Tiger  More

Differences of the Tiger I
Differences of the Tiger I

The German King Tiger Tank is incorrectly labeled in Axis and Allies RTS as Panzer VI Ausf. B which is actually a Tiger II, or King Tiger Tank. The more accurate labeling would be Panzer VI Ausf. E (original designation was PzKpfw VI Ausf. H and was redesignated as Panzer VI Ausf. E in 1943) or Tiger I. See Spotting a King Tiger for more

King Tiger Tank Regiment
All King Tiger Tank regiments consist of:
[1] Command Tank
[3] King Tiger Tank Units
As can be seen below, the King Tiger unit can easily outmatch the enemy units it will likely be facing. Although the King Tiger has the highest health, attack, range, and defense values, it is not without weakness, or by any means unstoppable.
The biggest challenge it faces in combat is being bombarded from a distance by artillery tanks. Due to the slow speed of the King Tiger, at times they have to absorb multiple bombardments before even reaching the front lines.

King Tiger Regiment
The King Tiger regiment can be a powerful weapon in Axis & Allies, but also faces a couple challenges to be successful in online play.
High Cost | Weak Economy
The King Tiger regiment is the most expensive regiment to research and produce, and Germany also happens to have the weakest economy. It can be difficult to transition from the "mech" stage straight to King Tigers, in most cases get some regular Heavy Tanks out first.
Slow Speed
The King Tiger regiment is also the slowest regiment in the game, which causes a number of problems in terms of it's performance. It will take a long time for Tiger II tanks to reach the front lines, and they also have trouble when closing the "gap" between enemy artillery tanks. The King Tiger regiment is most effective when used to advance slowly, using techniques such as leapfrog entrenchment.
Tiger Tank versus Arty Tank
When engaging Artillery Tanks it's important to space out your Heavy Tanks to protect against splash damage from enemy bombardment.
Splash Damage will inflict damage to anything near the targeted location, so spread out!

Watch the Skies
Your King Tigers will be a priority target for enemy airpower, yet another reason to stay spread out.
Splash Damage will inflict damage to anything near the targeted regiment(s), so retreat any units under attack; if possible retreat back to your anti-air defenses!


Enemy airfields should, in turn, be a high-priority target for you and your allies!

In Conclusion
The Strongest & Most Expensive
The German King Tiger Tank is unquestionably the strongest regiment in the game, but as it was in real life, it is also the most expensive to research, deploy, and support.
Considering Germany has the weakest economy, it's usually a good idea to deploy at least a division of heavy tanks first, and save king tigers for the late-game.
While the Tiger Tank has the highest health, attack, range, and defense values, it also is the slowest unit in the game. Keep your Tigers in supply and spread-out to protect against artillery bombardment and special-op bombs.
When playing on maps with alot of forest or jungle King Tiger Tanks are not recommended.
Artillery Support
While the King Tiger Tank regiment can certainly do well on it's own, it will perform much better if supported by artillery. Try deploying a division of "arties" to support your "Tigers", or team up with an ally.
Beware of Forest, Jungle, and City Terrain
Stay in open terrain with your King Tiger Tanks, as Forest, Jungle, and City Terrain makes one of the games' slowest units even slower. When playing on maps with alot of forest or jungle King Tiger Tanks are not recommended.
Important Upgrades
Make sure to get the important upgrades: Tank Production, Schurzen, Gyrostabilized Tank Guns, Advanced Armor Training, and Diesel Engines. For the full story see our Guide to Upgrading Your Tanks | Armor
