The Jagdtiger was the largest and heaviest armoured fighting vehicle used by the German panzer forces during the war. Work on the Jagdtiger began in 1943 and Henschel, who already made the Tiger and Königstiger heavy tanks, submitted plans based on the Königstiger.

Two prototypes were produced, one using the original Henschel Königstiger suspension, the other based on the Porsche suspension similar to that of the Elefant tank-hunter. The Henschel design was selected, but due to slow production ten Porsche vehicles were also produced. A total of 77 Jagdtiger tank-hunters were manufactured by the end of the war.
