The King Tiger heavy tank was introduced in 1944 during the latter stages of WWII.

The tank was armed with a powerful L/71 88mm gun and protected by 150mm frontal and 80mm side armor. Many of these formidable tanks were involved in the German offensive through the Ardennes in December 1944. As for the DKW NZ350, this motorcycle was produced from 1940 and late-war versions featured a smaller headlight as well as thinner fenders.
