Panzer unit insignia - survey

Post by Stefano » 06 Oct 2019 18:03

Hello
Since to my knowledge there is really no updated reliable study on the insignia of Panzer-Divisionen, Regimenter and Abteilungen, after studying a lot of photos from books and e-bay I have lately put together a survey which is now available for downloading from my website, direct link: http://www.panzer-ozak.it/Panzer_unit_i ... _part1.pdf

It is divided by campaign / war theatre. For the time being it only covers the 1939-41 campaigns plus north-Africa and Italy. The rest will hopefully follow.
In addition to the insignia, I have tried to give information on the appearance of turret numbers, as they often allow to identify the unit – at least for the 1939-1941 campaigns, when the numbering were still somehow standardised.
Several black spots and uncertainties remain, so I’d be grateful for any feedback, addition or correction.

For all interested, thanks to new information I have updated the file on Panzer unit insignia (part 1) with corrections and additions (concerning in particular 3. PzDiv in 1939, 9. PzDiv in 1940 and 29. PzGrenDiv in Italy).

Stefano,great!
I would like to ask You a question–do You plan to make the same review of the Soviet-German front in 1941-45?

Stefano,
Excellent research. I have seen this style layout many years ago in a Tiger I marking survey. Did you do the Tiger I survey, too? Looks great. Steve
