How tough is a Tiger tank armor?

From the pictures below I would say pretty darn tough.   The round is a 17lb shot the didn't make it through the armor plate.  I would bet the crew near that didn't survive.


  1. There would be a lot of spalling from that round. I would not want to be in that Tiger with those pieces of metal ricocheting around inside the crew area

  2. I agree. I bet the spalling was red hot also. Thanks for post a comment.

  3. I don't think this is actual Tiger tank armour. Looks exactly like one of the armour/round testing examples at Bovington.
