The Tiger was designed as a Break-Through tank, and as such the amount of needed numbers the were thought not to be very great.

It was also this reason the cost and maintenance issues where not thought of as an issue.

 

 

The armature tank researcher Nicolas Moran describes this a lot better than I can 😉

 

 

Thats the same guy who I heard from that Americans only met like 3 Tigers in France! It was actually ever since 6th June.1944 to defeat of Germany. American tankers  only ever saw Tiger 3 times in North-West Europe. Here is a link to the video. Skip to 28.50.

@MiloMorai Question on that table:  I assume that is measuring the number serviceable over the number on hand - not the number in establishment. Is that right?

 

Ie if your battalion Orbat strength was 50 tanks, of which you had 40 on hand after some were written off in combat, of which 30 were operational, the percentage shown would be 75%, not 50%. 

 

 

The Jentz book should clarify.
