Error in designation of the Tiger H.


Here is the list with designation-changes of the Tiger I:

Panzerkampfwagen VI H (Sd.Kfz. 182) [KStN 1150d] 15 August 1942

Tiger I [Wa Prüf] 6 15 October 1942

Pz.Kpfw. VI H Ausf. H1 (Tiger H1) [-] 1 December 1942

Panzerkampfwagen VI H Ausf. H1 / Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E [D656/21+ (Tank manual)] March 1943

Pz.Kpfw. Tiger (8,8 cm L/56) (Sd.Kfz. 181) [KStN 1176e] 5 March 1943

Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E (Sd.Kfz. 181)
Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E [D656/22 (Tank manual)] 7 September 1944

 

No on of this changes were made when the tank design were changed, so there are no "Versions" like Panther D, A, G etc.

Why?

Tiger I early and Tiger I late would be enough.

In the moment the ingam Tiger could be named Pz.Kpfw. VI H Ausf. H1 (Tiger H1) or Panzerkampfwagen VI H Ausf. H1 or Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E

Or we made it the Wehrmacht-way and call it Pz.Kpfw. Tiger (8,8 cm L/56) (Sd.Kfz. 181) or simply "Tiger I" or "Pz VI", like the unit commanders did in theire reports...
