It was built in small numbers in 1943 under the name Ferdinand after its designer Ferdinand Porsche, using tank hulls that had been produced for a cancelled German heavy tank design.
In 1944, after modification of the existing vehicles, they were renamed Elefant. The official German designation wasPanzerjäger Tiger (P) and the ordnance inventory designation was Sd. Kfz. 184.
