The tracks of the Tiger were so large that transport by rail was not possible. So, two types of tracks were created, the Marchkette (operational) Glesketten, fitted near to the operation area, and the transport ones (Verladekette), quite narrower (520-725 mm/20.47-28.54 in). The change of tracks also imposed the removal of the outer roadwheels. The normal tracks allowed the lowering of the ground pressure to just 1.11 kg/cm2, and was made of 96 unlubrificated soft steel links. The Verladekette had a 1.545 kg/cm2 ground pressure.
