This ship, along with two other classes of "Deutschland", was called a "pocket battleship", and for good reason. While conceding to other heavy cruisers at cruising speed, Admiral Graf Spee however, could escape from the pursuit of battleships. Being superbly armed (six 280mm guns, and as many as eight 150mm guns), this German heavy cruiser, thanks to a powerful diesel power plant, also had a huge operational range. Admiral Graf Spee sailed the Atlantic Ocean from the beginning of the Second World War, and in early November 1939, reached the Indian Ocean. It sunk English cargo ships, and remained unnoticed by English warships during the course of its raids. Finally, on December 13 1939, Admiral Graf Spee had met its match: it stumbled upon a squadron of British cruisers from near the
La Plata in the South Atlantic, and here the first major naval battle of the Second World War was fought. The German cruiser, with heavy fire, expelled the strong English Exeter cruiser from the battle and began to retreat, but the other two enemy light cruisers pursued it. Admiral Graf Spee needed repairs and retreated to neutral Uruguay, but the disinformation provided by the British about an overwhelming force being gathered at the exit from La Plata was successful. On December 17, the crew left the "pocket battleship", and that same evening, it was scuttled in neutral waters.

For a tank that has grown such an amazing reputation, very few real Tigers remain. Only six reasonably complete vehicles still exist and of these Tiger 131 is undoubtedly the most famous.

Serial number 250122 came off the Henschel production line in February 1943 and was issued to the 504 Heavy Tank Battalion. In early March it was shipped from Sicily to Tunis as part of Hitler’s belated reinforcement of his North African Army. The tank was captured at the end of April and as the first complete Tiger to be seized in the West, it was filmed and photographed and later brought to Britain for extensive analysis.

Why Tiger 131? The tank was issued to the commander of Number 3 Platoon. The number signifies the company, the platoon and the place of the tank within that platoon, hence 131.

In 1951 Tiger 131 was passed to the Tank Museum where it has been a popular exhibit ever since. It’s return to working order in the early 2000’s meant it became the only running Tiger 1 and this, in the age of the internet, has led to millions of viewings online of the tank running at events. Its involvement in the Fury movie of 2014 and its appearance in the World of Tanks game has only added to its exposure – m.aking it now probably the most famous tank in the world.

The Panther was produced as a reaction to the tanks encountered by German forces during Operation Barbarossa. Having considered Soviet tank designs to be obsolete, German tank crews were stunned when they came up against concepts like sloped armour on the T-34 and the sheer size and brutality of the KV-1. The Panther, designed as a kind of multi-purpose tank, took Soviet innovations and supersized them.

Entering the battlefield from 1943 and weighing in at around 45 tonnes, this was a huge machine. It was technologically ambitious, seeking to combine armouring with speed and firepower. It mounted one of the best guns of the war - the dependable 7,5 cm Kw.K 42 L/70.

However, in needing the tank on the field as quickly as possible, many shortcuts were taken in the manufacture and testing of the Panther. Reliability problems and mechanical failures became the bane of its crews. It was an over-engineered design that left no room for cutting corners. Roughly 6000 Panthers were made, but arrived too late to make a difference. It cannot be denied that if it had arrived earlier, and with all its high-tech features operational, the path of history would have deviated.
