  1. The Tiger was a fierce opponent for our much lighter tanks during that war. One shot from them could destroy an allied Sherman, which invariably caught fire too. The Germans referred to them as ‘Tommy Cookers’, a chilling name indeed. It was doubly frustrating, as our smaller tank shells could not penetrate the German armour on those heavy tanks, even if they could get a direct hit.
    Fortunately, a combination of complex mechanicals and excessive fuel consumption meant that they were not as effective as they might have been.
    Best wishes, Pete.
