The first time this can be done in the third mission of the third campaign. The mission is named "Zeit erkaufen" / "Buy Time". The campaign name is "Battle of the Bulge" / "Battle of the Ardennes" / "Die Ardennenoffensive".
In the first two campaigns of the game only standard Tiger tanks will appear. The names of the first two campaigns are "Operation Cobra" and "Desert Rats".

In this mission you have to defend two citadels and a bridge. The enemy has a massive force of tanks including two king tigers. You only have one sherman. As the King Tiger is the strongest tank in the game you can´t kill him over distance, even on the most easy setting.

But luckily the AI is using the King Tank as front warrior and is trying to breach the defense with the King Tiger. This means the King Tiger is driving near your defenses like houses or strongholds. So I have killed the King Tigers by hiding my sherman always around corners behind houses or in house canyons. If the AI is doing it´s turn and the King Tiger is moving around corners your sherman will automatically fire first. I have killed one tiger this way with frontal fire (this means the shot was hitting the front of the tiger). The second Tiger I have killed with my sherman by shooting in the back of the tiger. My sherman was hiding behind a hedge and the sherman was directly moving around the hedge on the field nearby.

The first King Tiger will appear with the first enemy wave. The King Tiger is spawning in the north west of the map. He will drive to the north west citadel. But if you can manage that the King Tiger is retreating, he will try to attack the south east citadel. In my game I have hided my sherman behind the large hedge between the north west and south east citadel. The tiger was passing by the hedge and was destroyed with a shot in his back. Keep in mind, that the Tiger will move around the north side of the hedge.

The second King Tiger will spawn around wave 10 with the last enemy attack. He also spawns on the North West side of the map.
