The Second World War is drawing to a close, with furious and bloody battles raging as the mighty Red Army advances on Berlin. Amidst the destruction a huge, seemingly indestructible Nazi tank dubbed the White Tiger appears on the battlefield. It destroys everything in its path and then swiftly vanishes - its lethal prowess leading to the Russians holding it in fearful and almost mystical regard. To counter this new enemy, the Soviets build an extraordinary tank - a special version of the legendary T-34. Commanding this tank is Ivan Naydenov who was gravely wounded in combat when his tank was destroyed by White Tiger. Defying all odds he survives, returning to the ranks driven by the all-consuming urge to avenge his fallen comrades and wipe out the White Tiger once and for all.
