The world's only running example of the Tiger I (side number 131). This vehicle was captured by soldiers of the 48th Royal Tank Regiment (48 RTR, A Squadron, 4 Troop) at Djebel Djaffa on April 21, 1943, during the last month of the campaign in Tunisia (Africa). It is the first Tiger captured by British and American troops intact. It was brought by the Germans to Tunisia between March 22 and April 16, 1943, and brought into combat with the 48th Royal Tank Regiment near Medjez-el-Bab on April 21, 1943.

It destroyed two Churchills, but a shot from a six-pounder cannon damaged the turret and wounded the commander. The crew had to abandon the tank to save their lives. The damage is still visible in the yoke and faceplates. Completely destroyed parts were replaced with parts from other tanks. In October 1943, the vehicle was shipped to England. The Tiger 131 tank can be seen at Britain's The Tank Museum in Bovington

The Tiger I 131 model, created entirely from COBI building blocks, was released in cooperation with Britain's The Tank Museum in Bovington and faithfully reproduces the original vehicle, which is the highlight of the exhibition at this facility. Thanks to great attention to the reproduction of the silhouette and details of the tank, the set is ideal as an excellent souvenir, part of an exhibition or collection of any teenage and adult enthusiast of history and militaria. It uses numerous movable elements such as opening hatches, rotating turret, vertically movable barrel, grenade launchers and, finally, spinning wheels with working tracks, which also make it a great toy for the youngest.
