Thank you for 10k points!

To thank to all of you who upvoted my builds and allowed this achievement to happen, I decided to make a special build for you.
And not just any special build but something I've been planning to build ever since I bought the game:
The Pz.Kpfw. VI. Tiger I ausf. H1 (these Germans really like long names)

The Tiger is my favourite tank of all time and ever since I realised that tanks can be made in this game, I wanted to build it, but first I wanted to gain some experience and skills to make it as great as possible. Well the time came now so here it is:

History

The Tiger I was a heavy tank which was in service of the German armed forces during WWII, between 1942 and 1945. The tank was feared by allied forces due to its thick, 100mm frontal armour and its fearful 8.8 cm KwK 36 main gun which was able to penetrate most allied vehicles. The design had many flaws however. It broke down very often (especially the transmission) but it also couldn't go to far distances because of the lack of fuel and due to its size and weight it was hard to transport too. The tank had a maximum speed of 45.4 km/h (28.2 mph)
The tank first saw combat on 23rd of September, 1942 near Leningrad. Soon, Tigers appeared on all fronts and had devastating effects on allied forces. Allied soldiers feared it because often up to 5-6 M4 Shermans were needed to defeat 1 Tiger. But the Tiger was still defeated in numbers as only 1347 Tigers were built while the US produced nearly 50000 Shermans. Only 7 Tigers survided 'till this day with Tiger 131 being the only one restored to running condition (which can be seen in the Bovington Tank Museum in England)

Now let's talk about my build:

I spent about 2 days, making this beauty and I think it looks really great.
It has a realistic size and the body is really detailed. I tried to make the speed realistic too by seriously reducing the engine power (tho you can still go with up to 60 km/h or more) and it resulted with the tank starting up a bit slowly and it also has a hard time on climbing hills.
The features:
The tank features a main gun that can fire 20 rounds of boom25s, a coaxial machine gun, working suspension, a simplified gun sight of the original Tiger tank, smoke launchers and lights.
Here's a demonstration:

Thanks again for 10k to everyone, and Have fun with this wunderschön panzer!

    @TheAmericanPilot h1 is a tropical variant, meaning the pipes that youre looking at the back were cooling systems

    @TheAmericanPilot Tiger I. Wikipedia - Designations: You can find Tiger H1 in the list of production variants. The devs of War Thunder didn't just make it up, H1 was an actual variant, tho I have to admit this one is based on the war thunder Tiger H1 but still, it was real.

    @HarryBen47 sure
    To upload pictures:
    - Get your pictures (screenshots, or download from the internet etc.)
    - upload them to any picture uploader site (I personally use and recommend tinypic.com but you can use any other similar website)
    - copy the link of your uploaded picture (on tinypic, you gotta copy the last link from the 4 that tinypic will offer you after the upload)
    - In the description of you post, you gotta write an exclamation mark - ! Then (without spaces) you gotta write square brackets - [] and then (again, without spaces) you gotta write your link inside regular brackets - (link). It should look like this
    ! [] (http://i68.tinypic.com/j7gf1t.jpg)
    {Delete the spaces between the exclamation mark and the square brackets, and between the square brackets and the regular brackets. No spaces at all}

    For the post background, you gotta use CarnationRED's upload with screenshots mod

    @BMilan it would be cool if you made an Die Glocke, as there are only one or two that are good in the entire site.
