Historical Picture

Damaged Tigers were mostly used during the war by Germany as an assault gun (Sturmtiger) and many other roles such as a recovery tank vehicle. The 88mm KwK 34 turret was replaced by a crane/tow hook and it was non-officially known as the Bergepanzer VI Ausf.E but the Allies gave it a much shorter and more popular name known as the Bergetiger.

The Bergetiger's role as a recovery vehicle has been disputed ever since its discovery. The evidence often cited against it being a recovery vehicle is that its crane was not designed to tow the weight of a tank, nor was it equipped with any other common recovery equipment. A popular alternate theory is that the vehicle was field-modified (possibly after suffering damage to the main gun) as either a mine-clearing vehicle, or to drop explosives to clear battlefield obstacles.
