The long 8.8cm gun armed Panther tank came out of two parallel design programs. One to produce a redesigned turret for the Panther and another to up-arm the Panther with a more powerful weapon. 

The new turret was designed to eliminate the shot traps of the original Panther turret and improve ease of manufacture. This was called the Schmalturm or Narrow Turret due to its narrower front profile. 

During the development of the Schmalturm turret it was proposed that the Panther be up-gunned to the same powerful long 8.8cm gun found in the Tiger II and Jagdpanther. Both Krupp and Daimler Benz designed modified Schmalturm turrets to fit the 8.8cm gun, eventually combining their efforts to produce a final design.
