The design followed the same concept as the Tiger I, but was intended to be even more formidable. The Tiger II combined the thick armor of the Tiger I with the sloped armor used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost seventy metric tons, was protected by 100 to 180 mm of armor to the front, and was armed with the long barrelled 8.8 cm Kampfwagenkanone 43 L/71 gun wich also be used on the Nashorn, Ferdinand and Jagdpanther. It was the heaviest operational tank design in the war followed by the IS-2 wich be designed to beat up the King Tiger. A variant of this tank, the Jagdtiger, was also the heaviest Tank Destroyer of the war. The King Tiger was the heaviest German tank in FHSW until v0.2 when the Ratte saw his debut in the mod.

A version of the Maybach HL230 engine with fuel injection and uprated drive train was designed that would have increased the power to about 1,000 PS (986 hp, 736 kW). Henschel proposed using it for future production and fitting it to existing Tiger IIs, but the deteriorating situation meant the upgrade never left the drawing board.

Other suggested improvements included a 10.5 cm KwK L/68 as its new main weapon, but also stabilized sights, a stabilized main gun, automatic ammunition feed, a Zeiss stereoscopic range finder, heated crew compartment, storage for an additional 12 rounds, and an over-pressure and air filtration system to protect against poison gas, but these either never got beyond the proposal stage or did not enter production before the war ended. The improved Tiger II ingame had only a new maingun, engine and the MG 34's are been replaced by MG 42 machine-guns.
