The Simmering-Graz-Pauker Sla.16 diesel engine was developed for the VK.4502 Tiger design of Ferdinand Porsche and was then added to the “King Tiger” after some further development. The new 16 cylinder turbo diesel engine not only solved overheating and fuel consumption related issues, but it also resulted in a considerable boost to the power of the engine, allowing the Tiger II to sport.

The Swedish King Tiger was a test vehicle marked 211 from Kummersdorf, which was the sixth series-produced King Tiger tank with chassis number 280 006. Several individuals have contributed to solving the mystery of the identity of the Swedish King Tiger.

Tiger King manufactures the S27 Evo engine upon which the NFRP 28.5cc engine is based. The capacity is increased by the use of a Tiger King 29.6mm stroke crankshaft assembly, resulting in an engine of greater power. Many other modifications have been done to increase power and durability. Oil We use and recommend Castrol TTS oil mixed 13 parts fuel (by volume) to 1 part oil. (77ml of oil to 1.Tiger King's purpose built marine engine looks to be off to a good start: - Four Bearing Crankcase - 28mm Stroke X 35mm Piston - Sleeved Cylinder - Slotted Con.The story for us starts in September 2006, when the Swiss Military Museum received one of the last remaining Tiger II King Tiger as a permanent loan from the Swiss Army. The tank is currently in the process of being restored from scratch. Final goal is the drivability of the tank and movability of turret and barrel. The history of the Tiger II with the VIN 280215 is yet unknown to the largest.


The King Tiger used the same liquid cooled, gasoline powered engine as the Panther (and weighed over ten tons more). This was the German's most powerful tank to see combat, it combined thick armor, sloped like the Panther and T-34 with an improved version of the powerful 88 mm gun. Since the power to weight ratio was ludicrous, the King Tiger was very slow, and had lots of breakdowns.The 70 tonne production King Tiger has a 690hp V-12 Maybach petrol engine. Perhaps the 46 tonne M-60's Continental V-12 750 hp air-cooled, twin-turbocharged diesel engine would suffice, having come into service in 1959. There just aren't any 1,000 hp tank engines available in the west until the heavier main battle tanks of the late 1970s and 1980s. Of course, the Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus was.

The King Tiger as the successor of the Tiger I was the culmination of the german heavy tank development in world war II. The Jagdtiger surpassed him in terms of weight by some tons but was not the better tank in an entire view of movability (weight and motor power), fire power and armor. The roots of the heavy tank Tiger II date back in 1937 when first concepts were developed for a tank in the.

For the engine, it used a Maybach HL 230 P30 engine which was the same as was fitted to the Panther. It produced 700hp of output which was inadequate for a tank this size, which was 11 tons heavier than the Panther. This made the King Tiger miserably underpowered and susceptible to surprise flank attacks.
