    allso i am 6.3 foot and say 17 stone, i look tiny towards the King Tigers Panther and JadgPanther and the Tiger

    but i must say the Panther look like a well designed Tank light fast and powerful Gun with sloping armor the Tiger was missing
    after years of reading and seeing them in Films books and games shocking to see in real life

    Bovington Tank Museum is superb, I was there a few years ago

    Did the curator tell you the tale regarding the LSSAH Konigs Tiger? ...

    The Panther is interesting as it was built by British REME if I remember from left over parts

    Great photos, it's great that Bovington have both versions of the King tiger!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    no did not get the story of the Konigs Tiger, i read the sign but cant remember, one was built after the war i think and the other green Camo was captured.

    yeah panther was built after the war in one of the original factory, i still would class it as a war time Tank i did read the turret is not a match for the hull, the panther looks deadlier than the Tiger i really liked it

    whats the difference in the 2 King Tigers

    It's the turrets mate, the one with the flat front was built by Henschel, the one with the curved front was a version built by Porsche in far fewer numbers.

    This site explains the turrets. Some myths have come about over the years:
