The division had:
60 tanks on strength (8 Pz-II, 29 Pz-III, 19 Pz-III, 3 Bef.Pz., 1 KV)
7 armored cars (4 SdKfz.222, 2 SdKfz.223, 1 Soviet AC)
12 self-propelled anti-tank guns (2 47-mm, 10 76.2-mm)
42 towed anti-tank guns (21 37-mm, 5 45-mm, 9 50-mm, 7 75-mm, 1 76.2-mm)
3 anti-aircraft guns (1 towed 20-mm and 2 self-propelled quad 20-mm)

Apparently the division received considerable tank reinforcements before entering battle.

Partial information on personnel casualties of German divisions and groups involved in "Wintergewitter" and at the Chir River Front (NARA T313 R355).
Would be interesting to compare this numbers with soviet losses in that battle.
