Re: Puma Question, K.St.N.1109 (f.G.)

Hey David, I don’t have an April 1944 KStN either but the 01.11.1944 one also has 16 vehicles in the Ausf. B version of the KStN. In this version there is one vehicle in the Stab, one vehicle for the Stabskompanie Gruppe Führer, 8 in the 2.Schwere Panzerspäh Zug and 6 in the 3.Schwere Panzerspäh Zug...

Re: KSTN 1118 Pz Gren Regiment Pioneer Company

Neil this KStN is not on the site so you were probably looking in the right place , all that is available on the site are KStN that can be found in the KStN collection at NARA. This particular KStN, to my knowledge, is only available from BA-MA records.

Hi Neil,

Here you go, a bit fuzzy but a little squinting and you can make most of it out.

Re: Relationship between Felders.Btl. and Div.Kampfschule

Hero, Many thanks for the very detailed reply; you addressed the issues that I was trying to understand regarding these two types of units. I suspect that with manpower shortages the preferred method and the actual method of employing these units varied greatly. I am glad you find the site useful. T...

Re: Relationship between Felders.Btl. and Div.Kampfschule

Hero thanks for the response. Let me see if I understand what you are saying, the Div.Kampfschule purpose would be to train NCO's so does this mean the training component of the Felders.Btl. would be for training the enlisted men in the replacement battalion? In the volksgrenadier division it appear...

Hey Tom, A few months ago I set out to write a review of your book for my site but it never materialized, mostly out of laziness I am sure. Your post made me reexamine my lack of progress and though I am quite challenged when it comes to writing reviews I got it done just the same. For what its wort...

Re: definition of Transportverbindungsstelle

Any idea as to the factors in determining speed, would this be locomotive type and/or track conditions...

definition of Transportverbindungsstelle

The document below is from T311R020 document group 75901 (Transportmeldungen) I was hoping I could get a few terms clarified. First Transportverbindungsstelle , I would take this to mean transportation status or the like but what would be a more accurate definition? The meaning of Tpo. 8 ...and the ...
