Tiger 233 of s.Pz.Abt. 503 was one of the first Tigers to have extended hull front edges. In Spring 1943 it was sent for repair, and its turret was taken away. It was given the turret from Tiger 123 and was sent back to its unit. It's not known if the tank saw action while the number 123 was painted on its turret. The renumbering of Spring 1943 changed its number to 242.
