The 2. Pz.Div. had received 10 Sd.Kfz. 251/16 during Jan/Feb 1944 but on 1.6.1944 flamethrower weapon symbols possibly mounted on AFVs appeared with the
Pi.Zug (gep.) in Stabskp./Pz.Gren.Rgt. 2 (11)
Pi.Zug (gep.) in Stabskp./Pz.Gren.Rgt. 304 (12)
Pi.Zug (gep.) in 10.(Pi.)/Pz.Gren.Rgt. 304 (4)
Pi.Zug (gep.) in 5.(s.)/Pz.A.A. 2 (6)
3.(gep.)/Pz.Pi.Btl. 38 (6)
I am unable to tell how many of these 39 flamethrowers actually were mounted on m.SPW and who had them. Under normal circumstances Sd.Kfz. 251/16 were only issued to Stabskp./Pz.Gren.Rgt. and Pz.Gren.Pi.Kp. so IMHO that would be the most likely candidates.

There were a total of 8 medium mortars listed with the two le.SPW companies of Pz.A.A. 2, which means that there probably there were up to 8 Sd.Kfz. 250/7 mortar carriers available. I do not have any information about the number of Sd.Kfz. 250/7 ammo carriers in Pz.A.A. 2.
