Starting a Tiger Tank – “Hand Crank Engine Start Up”

 

70 years and he still works. Tiger Tank 131 was built in Germany before the Second World War. A real beast that has a Maybach 210 engine with a capacity of 23,095 liters (about 1,925 cubic centimeters per cylinder), with a maximum power of 690 hp.

The hand crank starter, is the recommended way of starting a Tiger tank in cold weather conditions (the video is filmed in Poland, a country with fairly low temperatures), for normal weather conditions this German tank has also has an electric starter.

Watch it in action. Impressive tank!
