The tank in question is WW2 King Tiger Tank No 124 which was lost in combat in August 1944 during the retreat towards Paris. The Tiger II model SdKfz 182 belonged to the 101st SS Heavy Panzer Battalion, a unit who were at the forefront of the fighting to hold the advancing Allied forces back.

Whilst in combat near the French town of Fontenay St. Pere, King Tiger No 124, commanded by Fritz Zahnner, was advancing into a wooded area along a road when the tank came under attack by US fighter-bombers. Although not hit, the King Tiger Tank fell into a shell crater where the crew bailed out, leaving the tank to be disabled later by Allied soldiers.

Musée des Blindés – The French tank museum at Saumur – were allegedly offered King Tiger Tank No 124 on long term loan to help the museum boosts its funds. However, it appears they declined the offer. The recovery team are now in discussion with another museum in France and an announcement will be made in the near future.

The next part of the story of King Tiger Tank No 124 is just beginning and we will be following it closely.
