it's funny couse panther was panzer mk 5 and tiger was mk 6 but tiger was designed before panther so why wasn't tiger mk 5?
when they designed new tank after mk 5 and 6 then used scariest name at that time which was tiger of course, but they used better and newer design from panther (sloped armor and everything that makes tiger II and panther G almost same tank) so i would say that it is actually panther II but "tiger!!! tiger!!!" scream on radio by U.S. troops was much more effective on morale than "panther!!! panther!!!" =)
hitler even took one tank out of production because of it's name but i can't remember which one? wespe maybe?
