Hello, I am trying to figure out which KStNs the 2.Panzer-Division would have used to rebuild the 38.Pz.Jg.-Abt. in early 1944 while stationed in France. I did not see a 1943 Panzer-Division KStN List and Gliederung anywhere. Is one available? Also, I searched the various NARA documents I have but t...

Re: K.St.N.s Needed

I can't imagine the amount of space needed to do a 1-to-1 Panzer Division in 1/72 scale. I've been working on a 1-to-1 of the 2.Panzer-Division in 1/285 scale and I don't even have enough space to do that.

Wouldn't "administratively" be a better word?
That is the word I was looking for! Wirtschaftlich does mean econmical of course but I didn't think it fit right within the context of the sentence.

Thanks Piet!

Hello,

I have the soft cover book, Army Panzer Uniforms in Colour Photographs by Wade Krawczyk

Thanks,

Re: TO&E of Panzer Aufklarungs units

Kelvin, some of that information looks a little off to me. For example, 9 SS PD didn't get any SdKfz 234 series cars until November 1944 so it can't be said to have been exclusively equipped with them can it ? Echoing the above, the 2.Panzer-Division was equipped with twenty-five 234/2 series armor...

The third chapter on organization discusses not only the overall Panzer divisions, but their component unit types as well. This chapter almost made me put the book down. On the one hand, there is a wealth of information presented here. Unfortunately, for whatever reasons the author has tried to fil...
