Hi Dirlewenger,Dirlewanger wrote:Hello panzermahn, Hitler proposed that three Tiger VK4501 (Porsche) chassis be modified for a Raumpanzer type vehicle for driving through walls.
This is not the same chassis as the Tiger 1 (Henschel) but same as that developed by Ferdinand Porsche with an Electric drive system and used for the Ferdinands and Elepants, one operational tank with an 88, and three Bergepanzer Tiger recovery vehicles.
Apparently the Raumpanzer idea never got much past the prototype stage. Here is a link to George Pradas excellent "Achtung Panzer!" site with a bit of info on the Raumpanzer and Porsche Tiger.
