I would go with the one with the two tank platoons as a single tank platoon would break very easily.
I would also maybe drop one panzer 4 for an additional pak 40 or two and add panzer fausts to your command teams if not already. I can bring a pak 40 stand for you to use if you don't have 3 or 4.
Well, it's like this. I was on a hill as a battery commander with six anti-tank guns and the Americans kept sending tanks down this road. Every time they sent a tank, we knocked it out. Finally, we ran out of ammunition and the Americans didn't run out of tanks. And that's it in a nutshell.

Zach is spot on, I'd even go further and suggest making that Pz4s Platoon into some panthers.

Single tank plts are ok. It's the 2 tank platoons that suck. You still get to remount first if you are bailed, and a tiger should be a 2+ remount so not a big deal. Lots of 1 Tiger platoons is probably the best for Tigers now. Also increases the chance for overkill shooting.

With the first list maybe try to make it a 90th PzDiv PzGren, and a 26th Pz Panzer company as otherwise losing both the small infantry platoons will break you.

Do Tigers get a 2+ remount in late war too or was that just mid war thing?

Thats the new Tiger Ace rule.
Look! We're not worried about the German army, we've got enough troubles of our own. To the right General Patton, to the left the British Army, to the rear our own goddamn artillery, and besides all that it's raining.

well in that case a tiger wouldn't be bad, it would help against things with FA of 7,8,or 9 that a 7.5 cm has less effectivness killing at range but you forfit a lot of rof.

I will definitely be using a Tiger in in mid war, but in my view they are too fragile in late war. A Konigstiger, on the other hand, might make a good platoon with the proper support.
