Tiger Day 12

TIGER DAY 11 – 27 APRIL 2019 – AT THE TANK MUSEUM

Tiger 131, one of the tank stars of Brad Pitt’s Second World War blockbuster ‘Fury’, will make one of its two yearly outings at The Tank Museum in April.

The Museum’s Tiger 131, a world-famous Second World War tank, is the only running Tiger I in the world and  visitors to the museum on 27 April will have a chance to see it in action in a 45 minute display along with its movie co-star, the Sherman tank ‘Fury’, among others.

During the lunchtime display at Tiger Day 11, Tiger 131 will be accompanied by a selection of Museum and guest vehicles, including two beautifully restored examples of the German Second World War StuG III.

The Sturmgeschutz was the workhorse of the German Army in the Second World War and there are only a handful still running in the world. Those running at Tiger Day 11 have been lent to The Tank Museum by Steve Lamonby and Jon Phillips.

With special Tiger-themed activities during the day, visitors can find out how the Tiger was captured, examine unique items and documents from the Archive, and discover more about Tiger 131’s formidable successor – the King Tiger.
