Rudolf Larsen: Panther Ace of Grossdeutschland?

Post by Fussballspieler » 05 Aug 2021 02:54

Hello everyone I am preparing to do a scale model Panther kit and wanted to recreate Larsen's Panther tank from the GD Division.

I cannot seem to find any information on his specific unit (company/platoon/individual vehicle number) other than he served as a Feldwebel in 2. Panzer Regiment GD.

Furthermore if possible what was his rank at the time of the First Battle of Targu Frumos battle in Romania?

:welcome:
Feldwebel in 2. Panzer Regiment GD.
I think it was 2./Panzer Regiment "GD" = 2nd company, I battalion of the regiment.
