Well, I'm pretty sure it's called 'Panzer turm' since they used various tank turrets to make defense stuctures. Basically a bunker with rotatable turret so it can attack in all directions.

Pantherturm because it't the turret of a Panther. And Panzerturm is more like a general name, because panzer = tank, so tank turret.

This is the Panther turm, because, it was used mainly on the Panther. I don't know any other tank that used this turret (except for the prototypes/bergepanzers and stuff like that)

Not really, since by that point in time Germany don't really have the fuel or the materials to make so many full tanks. And a bunker with turret is more survivable than a actual tank. Since Germany was on the defensive by then turret bunkers like the Pantherturm is a more useful use of scarce materials.

Point taken. I realize the obvious shortage of raw materials Germany possessed by the end of the war was extensive, but still a shame to see such an awesome piece of German engineering turned into this.

True though, better than sitting in some factory.

I like it how the turret has a chimney, nothing says home sweet home more than a chimney for a nice cosy fire.

Put grenade in there(chimney), this would be a very easy obstacle for infantry.

I think that's more of a "snorkel" than a chimney. Pretty sure its to let the soldiers breath underground.

I can't think of a proper group to post this on, thought maybe this one would be the more relevant one.

Anyone got any know how about the pantherturm?
