In Dec 44 - Jan 45 the 614. schwere Panzerjager Kompanie was subordinated directly to the XXIV. Corps (Nehring), 4. Pz Army (Graeser), HG "A" (Harpe). The 614. was stationed in in the Middle Vistula area, blocking the Soviet bridgehead on the left bank of the river. At that time, the unit operated 8 Elefants.HvH909 wrote:Where was this unit stationed December 44 - January 45? This was the last unit in the east to have the Jagdpanzer Elefant. Thanks! :D
I found a slightly different info:Ron Klages wrote:The fate of the 4 remaining Ferdinands was:
1 Elefant remained at Mittenwalde because of mechanical problems
1 Elefant took up firing positions in Klein Köris at the road fork to Löpten and remained there.
The two remaining Elefants made it to the Berlin inner city area and took part in the4 fighting at the Karl-August-Platz and Trinity Church. They were captured by the Soviets on 1 May 1945.
