This weekend is Tiger Day at The Tank Museum in Bovington, one of only two days per year when you can see Tiger 131, the worlds' only operational Tiger tank up and running. Unless you play World of , of course.

Just be aware that I get hundreds of emails every week and I can't promise that I'll show what you send in.


  1. Jingles: I remember a tank day at Bovington MANY MANY moons ago (possibly 25+ years) where they featured the Tiger being driven round the circular track, also on display was a Sherman, the Sherman was being driven by an old fella who faced Tigers in the Sherman during the war. At one point the Sherman stopped and his commentary went something like ‘we didnt really stand much chance as WE were firing ‘these’ at them and held up a Sherman round and THEY were firing ‘these’ back at us’ and held up an 88 round!

  2. Actually its pronounced M-aye-bach the CH is like a scratch in the throat.

  3. My 131 did not come with a crew.

  4. Your sound is far better

  5. great, now I want to play again…
    Damn you Jingles!

  6. 3:47 Jingles: “Tiger132 won’t have any problem penetration a Sherman from the front… or a Matilda.”
    *penetrates Matilda*
    Commander: “Ha, that one punched right through their armor.”

  7. Wait, tiger 131 gets BIA crew now? I’m almost positive I didn’t get that when I bought it years ago…

  8. I have all of the Tigers. I like to play all my tanks just for fun. Some games you win, some you lose. Thanks for the video, Jingles, and good luck, Mike in the USA

  9. best thing about the old days no whingers ad snowflakes lol

  10. STOP SAYING 1 3 1! 🙂

  11. I would love the option of selecting only same tier matchmaking (in the same way that you can opt to turn off some maps and game modes). I would totally accept the longer wait in exchange for being able to play a tank just against it’s piers. I hate logging in to find that I am just cannon fodder for tanks 2 tiers higher that I am not good enough (I freely admit) to get the better of. So I don’t often log in any more…

  12. Oh jingles you forget that tiger 131 is the H1 variant of the tiger and the tiger at tier 7is more of an example of the tiger E Variant

  13. 2:40 and the fact that, it’s probably the only 88 in the game that does 280 damage, instead of 220 for the “short” 88 on the “real” tiger. not even 240 like the (otherwise identical) gun on the Tiger P. or even 240 like the plethora of 90mm guns on tanks like the hellcat, super hellcat, M6, M36, etc. even more than 250, done by the likes of the 100mm guns on tanks such as the KV-85. don’t know what kind of crack wargaming was on when they made that change to the Tiger I’s long 88, but it sure was frustrating playing the Tiger P after this. i do less damage AND shoot slower in a tank with an identical turret & gun? with a bit less HP as well? wargaming can take that gun and stick it up their ass.

  14. I loved this battle. Thank you for showing it jingles

  15. Melancholic Ghost

    I don’t think ‘rose tinted glasses’ apply to Ye Olden Days of WoT so much as ‘repressed memories’

    • Those mean the same thing essentially. Our brain tends to forget the bad stuff and only remember the good stuff. Unless it was really really bad. But the low-level permanent annoyances? Those we tend to forget.
      The inverse would be “Murphy’s Law” where we tend to remember spectacular failures and come to the conclusion that “What can go wrong, will.”

  16. Thank you Jingles for featuring my replay. It’s an honor! It was a very satisfying battle. Rare these days.

  17. im not even going to lie . alot of the t6 battle”s are battle then the t100 battle’s

  18. Just shows what you can achieve if you work together…

  19. heh fond memories of first unlocking tiger and getting blasted by every t9 i encountered…

  20. In Blitz, tiger 131 gets ammo-racked as soon as anybody looks at it.

  21. I actually preferred the 2013-ish strong arty. Nowdays arty is more like an Ion cannon, can hit in very weird places previously arty-safe

  22. Is it me or is 131’s tube bent?

  23. Good match!

  24. Saurabh Singh Makrahi

    These sort of games i like. Low on toxicity and high on good gameplay.

  25. Cc came up with the airfare third hare. Not quite a lefh but hey.

  26. It was your video back many years ago where you did a review of the Tiger I that got me into WoT.

  27. Can you see their damage taken and spotting on the result screen? I mean theoretically they are the tanks, you are the dps.

  28. All wargaming games were (wowp) and are centered around armour (wot, wows), thus no, Jingles, nearly nobody can fight everybody in his match (except top tiers clearly and that not always). This is not the way the game works, its about being nearly safe from most enemies behind absurd efficiency of armours, where it should not happen reliably without t95, jumbo (excluding gunner port for difficulty of aiming at it from nearly decent range for a tank) and very few others

  29. What a pleasant video. Well done Jingles

  30. I wonder what the take up would be fir a historical mode where you play tanks that actually existed.

    • They tried and the matchmaking sucked. Jingles mentioned in an old video when they first introduced the mode he suggested for say a Sherman v Tiger engagement like Kasserine Pass, they needed to put a cap on how many Tigers the German side could use to give the Shermans a fighting chance. I thought they could have added more TDs to the American side but neither option was taken and the result was unbalanced as hell.

    • @Ember Fist no they tried preconceived battles. US v Germany or UK v Germany. By historical I meant, no e25, no long 88 on the Tiger 1. No 90mm on the Helcat. No squeeze bore on Matilda. You pick the vehicle and the fame picks the config and the ammo loadout. No gokd spam in historical mode. So if APDS was not in service, you get none of that ammo.

    Is sad that KV-2 was forced to fire AP because HE was nerfed …

  32. I recently started playing the M3 lee, lovely tank. Better than the Tiger

  33. Yet another low/mid-tier video from the Jingles commentary, yay ! A German kitten never goes wrong though…

  34. Jingles Question with recent events do you think Tanks are a still a viable weapon on the Battlefield?

  35. Me learning about WWII: “Wow, Tigers sound intimidating.”
    My dad when helping me choose a tech tree while first getting into WoT: “Pick the Germans, the Tiger is awesome.”
    Me finally unlocking and playing the Tiger: “Oh. Oh no. I should’ve gone Russian.”

  36. The calibre of the German guns is actually measured in centimeters, not in millimeters, as you are constantly saying in your videos.

  37. The KV-1 with a 57mm is lethal. Has a blistering fire rate with great DPM and tracking potential, letting you easily pick apart your opponent if you know how to use your armour. Three marked mine with the gun in question

  38. Add the fact that Tigers didn’t really like to fight at WoT distances, and preferred to keep their enemies at arms length.

  39. I remember getting the tech tree Tiger, played two games with the long 88, thought it looked stupid and used the short 88 for the rest of the grind.
