Tiger Logistics: How to feed a German Cat

Logistics of the Tiger Battalions or how to feed your cat. We all know that the Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung E was a high-maintenance cat, yet, how much actually? For this we look at fuel consumption and the sources here differ widely. We also compare the Tiger’s values to that of the Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausführung H. For data we look at the British reports on Tiger 131, German sources, Jentz & Doyle, Friedli and other authors as well. Of course, we also look at the Tiger Fibel (Tiger Primer), since it contains some interesting aspects as well, particularly when it comes to armor and oil.
