Panther II by eyepilot13 Panther II by eyepilot13
Panzerkampfwagon V Aus F (SD Kfz 171)
E-50/E-75?
(well not exactly)

But a hypothetical, alternative history version of a super-Panther with "Schmal Turn" und 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71 from a Konigstiger.

What if? A reliable Panther with an 88, produced in large numbers? In my alternate WWII history (in my head) the Gothonik World Order's MBT!

At the end of war were made some turrets for the Panther Ausf.F
The remains of one turret of Ausf.F survived today but was used as Target by British Army ,
also survived a Panther II chassis (prototype) , today are in Fort Knox Museum with one Ausf.G turret ,
North Americans Troops mounted the Ausf.G Turret in these tank , The Panther II would use not only a New Turret with the L/71 , would use only the Steel Wheels , Track links , drive wheel and idler wheel from Tiger II in one Chassis with more armor and Hitler just cancel the denomination of "Panzerkampfwagen V" for this model , the tank would only be officially Panther II or Panther Ausf.F ( for this reason exist confusion today about how should be the definitive Panther II or Model.F ) but all protect of Panther II was Cancelled , but Schmalturm and denomination of Ausf.F for the tanks with the new Turret followed up , E-50 and E-75 were just paper panzers (were only drawings and plans that never pass of the design table , some prisoners claim that in the production line of Marienfelde , in Berlin were assembled some Ausf.F for the final battle but not exist photographic evidence , the Book of Osprey "Panther Variants" claim that "if are true" , those tanks lacked of the new rangefinder for all problems for the chaos of Allied Raids in the city and the failure to deliver the optical equipment on the last days of war.
(These bolted shapes with holes on the sides are for one telemetry rangefinder in addition to the standard sight).
If one Ausf.F was used in Berlin , technically the sight was exactly like a Panther Ausf.G in one better Turret.

Schmalturm are one correction of the design of Panther Turret , the new Small Turret don't have the problems of the mantlet deviating shots to the heads of the crew memebers in the chassis.

In paper also stayed the order to develop an automatic loader for the 75mm L/70 because the war ended before the completion of a prototype.

Some Model Companies made models as Panther II of Panther Ausf.F

Like this example of Dragon in 1/35 with the correct detail of Track of Panther II
but the Schmalturm was in fact to small for 88 gun.
The Cancelled Panther II should have a turret with one shape similar to the tiger II
the weight of the gun barrel needs balancing with turret weight.

If you play World of Tanks, you can actually play in the Panther, using this turret and gun, you just have to research them first, which takes ages.
