Geschützwagen Tiger für 17 cm Kanone 72 (Sf.) “Grille 17”&
Geschützwagen Tiger für 21 cm Mörser 18/1 (Sf.) “Grille 21”






Already by mid 1942, Krupp had suggested to create a self propelled gun carriage for the 17 cm K 18 and the 21 cm Mrs 18. By the end of 1942, Krupp had received a contract to create a testing vehicle made of components of the Tiger I. A larger delay occured because it was decided to use components of the new Tiger II.









The works on the prototype were not finished when it was deceided to stop all development works due to the situation of war on 20th February 1945. The unfinished prototype was captured several months later by US forces in Haustenbeck. (Photo: NARA)
