Difference between Gefechtstross, Verpflegungstross, Gepäckt

Post by Falou » Sat Dec 11, 2004 1:50 am


I'm very interested by the learning of KStN. But I ve some problems with the "Tross" in general. I know that term regroups all the "logistic" of the unit, but what is the difference between Gefechtstross, Verpflegungstross and Gepäcktross? What is the function/composition of everyone?

Could you help me? Thanks!

Gefechtstross - weapons and ammunition
Verpflegungstross - food supply
Gepäcktross - all luggage the soldiers don´t wear while marching/fighting
