Nothing serious, its just with the Porsche turret the Tiger loses a lot of its fear factor ( :lol: ),  does anyone know if there is a way to give the Porsche turret a little meaner look B)

wasn't the tiger turret build by Krupp, and was one of the requierments of the design that it could mount it, so u have 2 types of tigers with one turret.... u had a P and a H hull both with the Krupp turret....

I think you're right, I've made a Revell Tiger II with a Henschel turret  and I've seen a real one with a Porsche turret.  Of all 492 King Tiger only 96 were with a porsche turret so that may be the explanation...but maybe you could change the camo?

Well thats a matter of taste; I personally like the Henschel turret, dont know it just give the "Tiger" that mean streak. Hope with new skins will look more bad-ass   :)

The Porsche Turret came from the cancelled Dr. Ferdinand's VK4502(P) (aka the doctor's design for the Tiger II or King Tiger).

Personally I find the Tiger II looks better with the Henschel turret than the Porsche one.

I think the stock turret for Tiger is a bit small for it. Porsche turret looks on it better.

oh if we talking bout the KT, yes the P is from the vk4502. they had some build already but then Henschel was chosen, but they used the P turret for the first couple of KT's, the P turret is rounder, i beleave all cast sides instead of welded, it's rounder more fluid in shape. but also it's a bullit trap in front. if u shoot on the lower half of the turret front the shell will bounce of into the tank upper deck or turret ring. also the armor protection was less then the H turret.

All in all if you look at P tank design, he was not so good at it. p100 (vk3001p) canceled, tiger p henschel was chosen, vk4502p henschel was chosen, maus never got of the ground, p1000/1500 canceled.

I am talking about the Tiger I, not KT or any other tank. Thank the gods, I found a good skin for the Tiger, and now just 10000xp to go  B)

Design

Henschel won the contract, and all Tiger IIs were produced by the firm.[15] Two turret designs were used in production vehicles. The initial design is sometimes misleadingly called the "Porsche" turret due to the belief that it was designed by Porsche for their prototype; in fact it was the initial Krupp design for both prototypes. This turret had a rounded front and steeply sloped sides, with a difficult-to-manufacture curved bulge on the turret's left side to accommodate the commander's cupola. Fifty early turrets were mounted to Henschel's hull and used in action. The more common "production" turret, sometimes called the "Henschel" turret, was simplified with a significantly thicker flat face, no shot trap (created by the curved face of the initial-type turret), and less-steeply sloped sides, which prevented the need for a bulge for the commander's cupola.[16]

Just to point this out cause it's "funny" that people always call Tiger II's other turret "Porsche" when it was made and designed by Krupp, Porsche had nothing to do with it. :)
