The Iron Tiger is the machine driven by the wild and energetic Baba. It was originally designed by the F-Zero Executive Project Committee in order to suitably aid Baba in becoming a full-fledged F-Zero pilot as per his lifelong training up to this point. The overall goal of this venture was to craft an F-Zero machine with all-around-balanced stats that a newcomer(despite possible past experience and determination)would be able to handle the first few times around the tracks. And due to Baba's naturally-manic energy and often failure to rationalize situations properly as a result, the fact that this machine's boost power has been intentionally decreased while the boost power and body strength remain in top form is no coincidence.

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, the Iron Tiger was introduced among the wide array of 25 fellow new machines. Similar to Green Panther, where this machine greatly succeeds in two different performance statistics, it greatly fails in one leftover. In the Iron Tiger's case, this failed stat would be the boost speed while the machine's grip and body stats remain above-average, allowing space for safe yet effective driving that ensures victory without the aid of risky manouvers and stunts.

In the most recent console-based installment of this series, Baba's Iron Tiger proves what a newcomer can do with relatively high acceleration and boosting potential, which makes up for it's disappointing lack in boost.

[edit] F-Zero Climax

In the most recent portable console-based title, the Iron Tiger shows what it's made of with an excellect grip that made it a favourite among fans for many years! The only downside is that the body stat has been somewhat taken down a peg, but it's not to be considered too bad of a stitch.
