Fla-Bataillon (mot.) 614

Post by Falou » Sun Jul 04, 2004 10:51 am

Hello all,

I'm searching about the K.St.N. of a Flak kompanie like the same who composed the Fla-Bataillon (mot.) 614. It's in this unit that the 24 exemplary of Flakpanzer I.

Could someone help me in this research? Or, at least, could give me the number of this K.St.N?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Have not seen a specific KStN for the 614. FlaBtl with this equipment.

One would need to find the order raising the 614. FlaBtl to see if there was a special KStN just for this unit, or if they took one of the existing KStN and made modifications to it.

It is probable that they took a regular self-propelled light antiaircraft company KStN and substituted a Pz-I chassis for the 1-ton halftrack. According to the Kriegsgliederung of 28.06.42, the three companies each had 8x 2cm mono and 2x 2cm quad guns. Possible (modified) organization:

KStN 192 - Fliegerabwehr-Kompanie (mot S), dated 1.02.41.
- Co Hqs: 4 motorcycles; 1 car (Kfz 1); 1 car (Kfz 15); 1 LMG.
- Signal Det
--- Hqs Sect: 1 car (Kfz 15).
--- 1 Lt Tele Sect c: 1 car (Kfz 15).
--- 4 Pack Radio Sect b: 1 car (Kfz 2).
- 2 SP’d Plt, each
--- Hqs Sect: 3 motorcycles; 2 cars (Kfz 15); 1 LMG.
--- Ammo Sect: 4 Pz-I chassis, Ausf A, for ammo.
--- Gun Sect: 4 Pz-I chassis, Ausf A, with 20mm Flak 38; 4 trailers (for 20mm Flak, without guns).
- SP’d Quad Plt
--- Hqs Sect: 3 motorcycle; 2 cars (Kfz 15); 1 LMG.
--- Ammo Sect: 2 halftracks (SdKfz 7/1 without guns).
--- Gun Sect: 2 halftracks (SdKfz 7/1 with quad 20mm Flak 38 ); 2 trailers (for 20mm quad Flak 38, without guns).
- Maint Sect: 1 motorcycle w/sc; 1 car (Kfz 2/40); 1 truck (3-ton).
- Co Trains: 1 motorcycle; 1 motorcycle w/sc; 1 car (Kfz 15); 2 trucks (2-ton); 2 trucks (2-ton/cc); 2 truck (3-ton/cc).

This above KStN is a "probable" (that is, one I assume is like that)organization based on an existing one. It is not real. There would be changes to accomodate the Pz-I, so that indicating personnel would be an exercise in fiction.
