There were heavy fighting going on in the city of Posen in 1945. Only a few German assault guns and tanks were in that fighting. Among them was one Tiger I. It went from one trouble spot to another until it was disabled and couldn't move. The questions are what were the names of its crew? How many Soviet tanks did it destroyed during the fighting?
