The Aspromante carried only the first 3 Tigers (in a single voyage).

The fourth Tiger sent to Africa, landed off an MFP on the beach at Tunis, specifically to be photographed in the city.

There exist photos of Tigers (of both 501 and 504 battalions) unloading from MFPs at Karouba.

Photos show two Tigers leaving the Reggio beach on MFPs. I have not seen any evidence of Tigers crossing Sicily to sail from Trapani, although other vehicles of the battalions did so.
