24.Pz Division Antitank weapon Sept 1943

Post by Kelvin » 05 Sep 2021 13:45

Hello, everyone , in accordance with 24.Pz division OOB chart on 01st Sept 1943,and after my calculation, this division had 50 Panzerschreck symbol, as I know, this weapon not yet distributed in Sept 1943, so should be Pz.Bu.41 2.8cm, but 50 x Pz.Bu 41 in one division, maybe too high, is it possible were old Pz,Bu,39 7.92mm ? anyone have ideas ? Thank

Hello, could it be 8,8 cm Raketenwerfer. 43, even if the first ones were officially sent to the units in October 1943?
Regards

Hi, AETIUS, thank for your reply, unfortunately, Status report on Sept 01 did not have data on that.

Based on the October 1, 1943 Zustandsbericht, almost certainly Gr. Büchse 39 and s.Pz.Bs. 41:

The 3x s.Pz.Bs. 41 were with 3./Pz.Pi.Btl. 40 on Sep 9, 1943:
