Today, only a handful of Tigers survive in museums and exhibitions worldwide. The Bovington Tank Museum's Tiger 131 is currently the only one restored to running order. Tiger 131 was restored to its original war time specification after a two-year restoration project. It cost £80,000. It is fitted with a genuine German Second World War Maybach engine.

Tiger 131 was captured following a lucky hit by a British Churchill tank, belonging to 48 Royal Tank Regiment, in the Tunisian desert in April, 1943. The shot wedged in the turret ring, rendering it useless. The five-man German crew abandoned the Tiger, which was captured intact. Winston Churchill, who was in Tunisia at the time, had the chance to inspect it. The Tiger was then sent back to Britain so the Allies could look for design weaknesses.

In this beautiful piece of filming you can watch the Tiger tank 131 in action from the air. She is fighting against three American Sherman tanks and an infantry platoon.
