While guns like the Soviet 85 mm cannon can easily penetrate the Tiger at close range, the Tiger can stay nearly invulnerable at long range. The 88 can take out any tank on Rank 3 at any combat range, but may have problems with the IS-1 's 120 mm front amour at some ranges. When having to close in a bit it is generally advisable to angle the hull to the sides by about 30°, improving the armour rating enough that it can keep away 85mm shells very well, even at closer ranges. The Tiger is still vulnerable to the SU-152s howitzer and its HE shell at any range. So whenever encountering these heavy-caliber vehicles, it should be prioritized and eliminated first.

The tank was given its nickname "Tiger" by Ferdinand Porsche , and the Roman numeral was added after the later Tiger II entered production. The initial designation was Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung H (‘‘ Panzer  VI version H ’’, abbreviated PzKpfw VI Ausf. H ) where 'H' denoted Henschel as the designer/manufacturer. It was classified with ordnance inventory designation SdKfz  182 . The tank was later re-designated as PzKpfw VI Ausf. E in March 1943, with ordnance inventory designation SdKfz 181 .
