It was active between 1927 and 1941. Many members of this organization were connected with Yugoslavian and British intelligence services and many of them were military trained. The organization wasn't invited to join the OF (Liberation front) of the Slovenian nation in 1941, but many members of TIGR later in 1943, after the capitulation of Italy, joined Slovenian partisan's brigades, specially the Oversea brigades (Prekomorske brigade).

TIGRE (2270 words)
TIGRE is designed to overcome many of the limitations of Compton telescopes.
Due to the relatively low density of silicon, TIGRE is an effective pair detector in the energy range 10-100 MeV, allowing low energy pairs to propagate through several layers of the detector.
In addition, TIGRE may be able to make MeV detections of AGN of the Seyfert type, which have been seen by OSSE in hard X-rays, but to date have not been detected by COMPTEL.
