Storyline

In WW2, after a tank battle, a wounded Soviet tank driver and mechanic is taken to the hospital. He suffers from amnesia and has severe burns on his body. He secretly believes he can communicate with any tank, as if the tank were human. After being returned to duty, the tank-man proves to be one of the best tank-men in his unit. Rumors about a new, invincible Nazi tank, circulate. It's said that a huge Nazi tank often appears out of nowhere on the battlefield and it destroys dozens of Soviet tanks. The mysterious enemy tank is nicknamed White Tiger by the Soviet soldiers. Our tank-man, Naydenov, is convinced that it was the White Tiger that destroyed his Soviet tank and he wants revenge. Naydenov is ordered to find and destroy the White Tiger. But how can one find and destroy a ghost of war? Written by nufs68

Trivia

The White Tiger tank is neither a Tiger nor a Tiger P. It's a Russian IS-2 modified to look like a Tiger tank--that's why the turret is moved to the front of the tank. Tigers also didn't have the tracks covered; this is most likely done here to hide the fact the wheels on the Tiger and the IS-2 look very different. It's believed that the American film Fury (2014) was the first to use a real Tiger tank. See more »

WHITE TIGER (terrifying, invulnerable, powerful)
4 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Hopefully this will clarify one reviewer's dismay about the Tank in WHITE TIGER. The Tank in question was indeed a real tank. Being a German Tiger I Tank, it was terrifying, powerful and, while not completely invulnerable, its vulnerable points were limited. Built for power and heavy armor in mind, it created a quite real fear among Allied Soldiers, known as "Tiger Fever". The Tiger I was conceived upon Hitler's special request. He wanted a "Super Tank" to outshine the Russian T-34, which is shown in the film. This is more of a Tank review than a Film review, but it suggests something that is rarely communicated in war movies: TERROR. Mangled and charred bodies have become commonplace in movies, and the gunplay has become nothing more than elevated pyrotechnics. While not wholly successful in displaying the full terror that men and women in these situations must have felt, WHITE TIGER is still a worthy film.
