Hello for all.

The is are picture of drawings in W. J. Spielberger book, showing Porsche proposals to install a gas turbine into a Kingtiger hull.
Is this an different early proposal for AFV gas turbine use ? Different than GT 101- 103 series ?

"One of the first development projects tackled in Gmünd was a gas turbine (Type 305) producing 1000 shaft horsepower. It was designed to power an armored vehicle, but had not passed beyond the design stage by the end of the war".

I recommend purchasing Anthony Kay's book "German Jet Engine and Gas Turbine Development 1930-45". In this book all German tank turbine developments are described in detail.
