Hello. Can anyone give me some information. I am putting together a project and need to know if there is any battles where any 101st Airborne troops fought any Tiger 1 units. Can anyone tell me that information? Any details would help too...Units, Tank markings, SS unit or Wehrmact? I'd appreciate any help!

If the op is still around this is probably the best place to start, it does mention Tiger II's when I had a very quick glance.

Unfortunately, technical details regarding tanks/equipment was never Ambrose's strong suits...

Hello ne300wn, a possible meeting with the Tigers was during the Battle of the Bulge where the 101st was sent as reinforcements and another was also during Market Garden but I'm less sure for the first.

There wasn't any KT 1 & 2 in the German side all around the 101st A/B Combat Zone nor in Best Zon and Neimegen in Holland
I mean that could have been destroyed by 101 troopers
All the had to deal with was Panther
