SS Nordland Dv in Berlin-tanks

Post by Vegemite/jordan » 10 Apr 2007 08:59

Hi all, I was just interested if anyone knew what tanks were in/co-operating with these units.

SS-Panzergrenadier Regiment 23 Norge
SS-Panzergrenadier Regiment 24 Danmark
SS-Panzer Abteilung 11 Herman von Salza
SS-Panzer Artillerie Regiment 11
SS-Panzer-Aufklärungs Abteilung 11
SS-Sturmgeschutz Abteilung 11
SS-Panzerjäger Abteilung 11
SS-Nachrichtung Abteilung 11
SS-Pionier Battalion 11
SS-Nachrichtung Abteilung Truppen 11
SS-Nachschub Truppen 11
SS-Instandsetzungs Abteilung 11
SS-Wirtschafts Abteilung 11
SS-Kriegsberichter-Zug 11
SS-Feldgendarmerie-Trupp 11
SS-Feldersatz-Battalion 11
SS-Bewährungs-Kompanie 11
SS-Sanitäts-Abteilung 11
SS-Werfer-Battalion 521
SS-Jäger-Regiment 11

Ive searched on the net and nothing has come up, wikipedia gives the above unit names/order of battle, but says nothing more with what is in these units. By chance were there and Jagdpanzers in the Division?

If there were Jagdpanzers with the Nordland Div. they most probably have been in the SS-Panzerjäger-Abteilung 11 (Panzerjäger means tank hunter, or anti-tank).
But I think - I'm no expert on this unit - that they "only" had several Pak 40 in this unit, meaning that they had anti-tank guns and no Jagdpanzers.
But I'm not sure and would suggest to wait until there'll come up an expert to write something here.
My 2cents.

Hi Panzerass/all.
I just received some info from a mate concerning the panzerjaeger unit. It seems they had pretty much all marders, 2's and 3's with the Pak40. Kind of 2nd rate.
There of course is the SS-Sturmgeschutz Abteilung 11 which I also heard had companys of 10 Stugs.
Im just not sure what other tanks there are in the division.
Also, ill take this chance to raise another question-were there any Tiger I units operating within the Nordland perimeter in the defence of berlin?

Cheers!

I don't know about the sector in which the Nordland was at Berlin, but the s. SS-PzAbt. 503 was at Berlin in the last days of the war and had Tiger II tanks.
