Position of units emblem

Post by Falou » Wed Sep 10, 2003 9:49 pm

Hello all,

Just a "stupid" question, but I want to be certain don't make a mistake!

Where is placed the unit emblem (like the one of the Schwere Panzerjäger Abteilung) on a Jagdpanther? At which position?

Thanks a lot!

There was a wide variety of locations on vehicles where unit emblems were applied. Actually every position was possible.
Soem units placed it on the ordered locations rear, front plate at the drivers hatch etc..
Many units placed it on prominent locations as turret sides etc...

OK Christoph;

I know you have a ton of photos, so:

I have not seen a photo of a JP with Divisional markings applied. Do you have such a photo(s)?

Hello Paul!

You are right... I was answering thinking of emblems in general. I simply missed the Jagdpanther part of falous thread.

I can´t remember a photo of a Jagdpanther with a unit emblem either.

Other Panzers with unit insignia

Hi Christoph;

Along the same lines:

Have you seen Panthers, Tiger II's, or Jagdtigers with unit insignia?

Stug III's with Brigade insignia but what about Divisional or smaller?

Jagdpanzer IV's or Panzer IV/70's (116th P.D. exception?)

Other AFV's that do not seem to have been marked with unit emblems(i.e. Nashorn, Hummel, StuG IV, Marder 38(t))?

Seems the later the date the vehicles was fielded the less likely to see unit emblems applied.
