"The Tiger II was the common name for a German heavy tank during World War II. The official German designation is Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, popularly referred to as Tiger B, with the storage identifier Sd.Kfz.182. It is also commonly known as the unofficial Königstiger (the German name for ""Bengal tiger""), often translated by the Americans as King Tiger, and the British as Royal Tiger.
Followed the same design idea as Tiger I, but intended to be more advanced. Tiger II combines between the thick armor of Tiger I with the slanted armor of Panther. The tank weighed nearly 71 tons, being the heaviest tank in World War 2. It was protected by a 100 to 180 mm (3.9 to 7.1 in) thick frontal armor, and was armed with 8.8 cm Kampfwagenkanone guns 43 L / 71. In other words, the Tiger II was the Panther tank that enlarges to have thicker armor and more powerful artillery. However, to get armor and good firepower, Tiger II shared the same disadvantage with Tiger I: the price of the car was very expensive, unable to produce in large quantities. In addition, the vehicle was too heavy (71 tons) which led to the most serious disadvantage of Tiger II: the engine system and the mechanical control of the car were still the same as the Panther (while the car was one and a half times heavier) leading to overload, poor reliability and often damaged. When Tiger II was broken, it was very difficult to repair in the middle of the battle conditions because the towed vehicles are unable to pull such a heavy vehicle (Tiger I also had this drawback, but not as serious as the Tiger II)."
