I think there is still a king tiger, but this replaces it as a reward unit.

what are the diff between Tiger Ace and Königs Tiger?

Speed and lower upkeep vs penetration and armour?

The Tiger Ace is basically a Normal Tiger on steroids, faster and more resilant than Blitz Tiger but it cannot earn veterancy, like the KT.

Its high likely that the JT will be a reward unit for the jagdpather, which fits the tankhunter doctrine perfectly fine :)

Nope, was because EF Community wanted it. To put it blunty we weren't going to use the Black Tiger skin at the time the idea was accepted.

But the skin was motificated a bit, or? or the model, these packages on the turret seem to be new ;)

That's a small gift for the Ace and doesn't have to do with the skin(which is the same iirc) ;). It shall stand as a different Tiger than Blitz one (not only for it's states but visually as well).

The Tiger Ace is a reward to substitute the Jadgpanther of Panzer Elite

So instead of the King Tiger we can return to a Tiger Ace like in CoH v1.71? Isn't the King Tiger better in armor and rotation speed of the turret?

@ab2531
Looks like the rotation speed comparison is correct but the armor type is the same(Tiger armor == King Tiger armor == Tiger Ace armor :-\).

If you look at the ebps, the King Tiger has reduced penetration in his action_apply so a better armor.

@Blackbishop.

Now really, this is right the way the ace deserved it. Absolutly perfect additions.
To be honest I can perceive even more featrues. seemingly you used the 2nd tiger model in the game, as basis, what is a absolutly brilliant idea. Its recognizeable on the ducts on the tigers back.
Another addion are these cans on its back, which will probably give it a nice look as well.
Not to forget about the shovel on its front :)

Description

The Tiger Ace is coming back to Wehrmacht's Terror Doctrine on the next update! Replacing the Jagdtiger as reward unit for the King Tiger.

Instead of using the same skin than the normal Tiger, will use Schultz's one. But it's output values are the same than used to be.
