mm on my build im thinking about the front gun rather than putting in a jaded panther stile i thought about putting a tiger 1 turret like big sponson that would allow the gun more frontal defense than just a small firing ark
I like the idea of a turret in the front, but I don't know about the Tiger I. The whole Tiger I design wa already outdated by the time the tanks were fielded.
Considering the other known elements you will use like the Maus and Kugelblitz turrets, the Tiger I turret with its complete absence of slopes would seem rather anachronistic. To keep in line with the other more advanced stuff, personally I would go with a Schmalturm (Panther) or E-50 turret.
Looking forward to see those barrels you talked about...
