Natural Selection
The Nazis were obsessed with Darwinian notions of natural selection and survival of the fittest.  Aggressive competition was woven into the very fabric of the Nazi state including tank design and production.

The Tiger tank was born from a competition between Porsche and Henschel to build a 45-ton tank, 88mm gun, heavy armour, speed and manoeuvrability. 

A tank capable of dealing with the Soviet T-34 and KV-1.  The two firms were to have prototypes ready for Adolf Hilter’s birthday, April 20th, 1942.

The Henschel design won.
