Tiger II N°222 s.SS Pz.Abt 501 | Panzertruppen | Flickr

For what it's worth, here's a photo of after it was knocked out by an tank destroyer.

Tiger II, s.PzAbt. 507, abandoned - March 1945.  Note the massive, 150 mm inclined at 50° glacis plate.Like all German tanks, it had a gasoline engine; in this case the same 700 PS (690 hp, 515 kW) V-12 Maybach HL 230 P30 which powered the much lighter Panther and Tiger I tanks. The Tiger II was under-powered, like many other heavy tanks of World War II, and consumed a lot of fuel, which was in short supply for the Germans.

King tiger

King Tigers lined up. A wild guess is that these were involved in the defense of Budapest, or perhaps in Poland. The danger of air assault in the West would make them lined up out in the open quite dangerous for the crews.
