Models
The market for radio-controlled Tiger tanks, die-cast and plastic model kits continues to grow.  As well as traditional model making the Tiger features in over 20 computer games including the popular Medal of Honour and Call of Duty series.  

Games, Books, Films, Social Media
There are also a limited number of computer games exclusively dedicated to German armour of WWII such as Panzer Commander and Panzer Elite. 

A quick search of Amazon online bookstore revealed over 1,600 titles that feature the Tiger tank.  Although certainly a niche market, the Tiger features heavily in military art with original works selling for thousands of pounds. 

The Tiger is a YouTube phenomenon, and appears 1,350 times in search results on the video sharing website.

Hollywood and TV love to cast the Tiger tank in the role of bad guy. Movies like the Battle of the Bulge, Kelly’s Heroes and Saving Private Ryan; and TV series such as Band of Brothers feature the Tiger tank.
