Repairing Tigers

Maintaining and repairing the Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung E Tiger was a big deal, yet, usually the topic is discussed by mentioning the interleaving track wheels and then moving on. Here we look a bit closer, namely the organization of the maintenance units, which unit was responsible for what. Additionally, some of the equipment like trucks and halftracks with cranes are mentioned, as are gantry cranes and the use of the Bergepanther. The interleaving track wheels also get an illustration in terms of how complicated it was to change them.
