The Roar of the King Tiger
In 1944, German forces unleashed a new terror on their foes - the King Tiger. The first fifty were produced with a turret designed by Porsche; thereafter, the mass production version used a Henschel turret. Packing a hefty punch with an L/71, 88mm gun and with armor up to 150mm on the front and 80mm on the sides, the King Tiger was a menace to Allied forces during the desperate December 1944 German offensive there. The DKW NZ350 motorcycle was produced from 1940, and later in the conflict some were seen with a smaller headlight and slimmer fender.
