the citadel is 105 gold cheaper, yet they appear to be exactly the same tank, any differences? I was thinking about grabbing one on discount...

I think they are identical except for appearance, I personally think the 217 looks better and I think it's model is what the PC tec tree Tiger 1 uses now.

Citadel has better armor, it has the best tiger I armor in the game.

(look at the lower plates of all tiger I's in armor viewer and you will see what i mean)

It's not the same at all, and this new "HD" model with an extra-lubricated coat of paint and more broken bits is just atrocious.

 

All these premium Tigers including the 131 are based in he same model the Heavy Tank No.6 has but with different paints/accesories/etc. The Tiger I "Hammer" a.k.a. "Tiger Clown Car" is the only one based on the regular tech tree Tiger I.

Citadel is the better one as the tracks on the LFP count as spaced armour, a fair amount of it too from what I remember.

If you enjoy them please do share/sub. Thanks.

IIRC the Citadel has a piece of spaced armor on the lower plate, and the 217 has a smaller copula. They are so close to each other that I would simply pick the tank you think looks best.

Tiger 217 - Smaller and better cupola

Citadel - spaced armour over lower plate

 

My personal preference is for the 217, as it looks better and in practice I think the better cupola is probably more advantageous unless you sit in the open and get auto aimed (and even then it would probably hit the mid plate anyway)

No neither comes with camo, although a lot of the German camo patterns let the underlying base colour show through, so they do look a bit visually different. Both are very similar in all honesty. The Citadel might do a little better when top tier against auto noobs. 

 

I agree with picking the one you think looks best.
