Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

abt 129: 5 Stugs
Abt 504: all tigers lost but 1

In total 118 of the 217 committed vehicles was lost.
The majority of the tigers was lost due to the fact that the HG werkstatt/repair unit wasnt up to the task of recovering the tigers.
A lot of them also were lost because they drove into minefields.
