Panzerbekämpfung

Post by Jerry » Tue Jun 09, 2009 2:50 pm

An officer evaluation says he was "Stabsoffizier Für Panzerbekämpfung". Staff officer for opposing tanks?? Any idea what it means, or what the responsibilities of a Panzerbekämpfung officer were?

Thanks, Jerry

Near as I can tell, he was Staff Officer for Tank Combat. Analysis maybe?

Hello

To get the real sense it should translate as "anti tank combat"

Wouldn't that be the Stopak? Or is it basically the same position?

Thank you gentlemen. That's what threw me off, that it wasn't panzerabwehroffizier or something to that effect.
