There is a misconception that covers both the Panzer VI Ausf.E Tiger I and the Panzer VI Ausf.B Tiger II heavy tanks that needs to be cleared up. All tank turrets fitted on the prototype Porsche Tiger I tank hulls, the Henschel, production Tiger I and the Tiger II tank hulls were designed and built by Krupp.
The terms ‘Porsche turret’, ‘Porsche turm’, ‘Henschel turn’ or ‘Henschel turret’ are wrong. Porsche did not build a turret for a Tiger Tank. Henschel did not build a turret for a Tiger Tank.
