Waffen-SS or Heer? 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945? Official KStN or from a specific unit?

Hmmm. See, Großdeutschland wasn't a normal Panzergrenadier-Division. It had various additional units, like the Tigers. Thus the standard KStN for a 1944 Panzergrenadier-Division is of no use. I don't have their OoB, but did you ask Rudi Salvermoser?

Regards,
Timo

According to Nafziger (P&A, p304) they were organised in the standard manner when initially fitted out as a Pz. Gren. Div. in October 1942 and still had the same configeration (3 battalions of five co. to each of the two regiments.
The titles "Grenadier" and "Fusilier" were adopted purely to distinquish them, there was no difference in the equipment.

The obvious: http://www.skalman.nu (people don't look at the Actungpanzer website, before asking at the achtungpanzer site either - big wonder!:)) :wink:

Else, http://www.feldgrau.com
