Postby tigre » Mon Aug 15, 2016 5:44 pm

Hello to all :D; the idea od this thread is to summarize the arrival of German tanks in the theater, the first were those of the PR 5 ........................... ....

The Panzer Regiment 5 in Tripoli - March 12, 1941.

By March 10, 1941 the armored regiment landed in Tripoli with a force of 25 Pz Kw I, 45 Pz Kw II, 61 Pz Kw III, 17 Pz Kw IV and 7 Panzerbefehlswagen, from where it departed towards the front on March 12, 1941.

Lets look at that initial allocation in a bit more detail.

The 25x PzKpfw I were all Ausf A
The 45x PzKpfw II were all Ausf C
The 61x PzKpfw III were I believe Ausf G. But I'm not clear on the exact differences between a 5cm armed Ausf F and an Ausf G, so I am happy to stand corrected.
The 17x PzKpfw IV were probably all Ausf D. Again I'm not clear on the difference between Ausf D and Ausf E. In addition to which there were also I believe hybrid Ausf D/E in very small numbers, at some point in 1941.
The 7x Panzer Befehlswagen were 3x Kl & 4x Gr.
Thanks. Dave.
