Movie Tiger

In one of the displays at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford is a “Tiger” tank hiding in the ruins of a building.

I say “Tiger” as this is no Tiger Tank, this is a fake Tiger Tank.

"Tiger" Tank

It’s one of two tanks made for the film, Saving Private Ryan. They are based on the chassis of the T-34 with a new superstructure and a new turret. The wheel arrangements are obviously not like a real Tiger tank, but as they have hidden it in a building, you could be mistaken…
