Re: Complete German oob for war in Italy?

I made pics of the text in the Osprey book. It's far from complete, but it's a start.

There are units missing, like for example Stug Br 242 and 5 Werfer Brigade. Maybey we could build an oob together?

Concord publ. "Panzers in Italy 1943-45", by Tom Cockle
Osprey publ. "The German army 1939-45 (5) Western front 1943-45", by Nigel Thomas

Job of messtrupps?

I came across the designation "Messtrupp" in several contexts, fe in the description of a specialized Horch Kfz 15 version (mittler Messtruppp Kraftwagen).
What does a Messtrupp do (I'm guessing it has to do with artillery), and is there one kind, or are there different kinds?

Thanks in advance.

Sdkfz 221/ 222 in Infanterie Divisionen

I red on Lexicon der Wehrmacht, that ID's of the 1 & 2nd Welle had Sdkfz 221/222 in their Aufklarungs Abteilung.

Were these actualy alotted/ used in WWII? If so were they used throughout the war, or deleted from the KStN and were the divisions ordered to turn them in?

Thanks in advance.
