About the Tank: Kuro Mori Mine
In the Anime
The Tiger I makes its appearance in Girls und Panzer as the ride belonging to one of the Tank Commanders of renowned Kuromorimine Girls High School. She is none other than Maho Nishizumi - the sister and also opponent of the main character, Miho Nishizumi.
Maho's school is known for its long winning streak in tank battles. Being matched against Kuromorimine is pretty much the equivalent of battling a team that has the highest win rate possible.
In the final tank match, it was Miho's Pz. IV Anko vs Maho's Tiger I.
In World of Tanks Blitz
Could the Pz. IV Anko really defeat a Tiger I in World of Tanks Blitz? That would depend on your skills and luck. But first, let's review the Kuro Mori Mine's capabilities.
At a Glance:
- Nation: Japan
- Tier: VI
- Type: Heavy
- Credit factor: Same as ordinary tanks of the same tier
- Cost: 100,000, Selling Price: 50,000
High accuracy, good firepower, and mobility makes this tank a deadly sniper. Although it is one fearsome tank in battle, you shouldn't let it get near any enemy because it has weak armour on its sides and rear (just watch what happened in the anime). Rely instead its Tier VII gun that can deal 165-275 damage and enjoy its aim time of 2.3s. Find yourself a few good sniping spots and you're set!
Completing all event stages will earn you the Kuromorimine tank. It will automatically be added to your garage and you can command it in battle right away!
