The official AHF WW2 in Eastern Europe quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 31 Jan 2005 19:37

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and this new section has been open for a while without one, so I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the WW2 in Eastern Europe) and so on.

Hvala ljepa for the compliment Mr.Gaius :) !

I guess my turn now. What was the name of the famous special (heavy) panzer regiment operating in January and February 1944 with Army Group South. Commanded by an officer who would later receive Swords to his Knight's Cross for actions of his regiment, the unit destroyed huge numbers of Russian tanks and played an important role in the Cherkassy pocket relief effort.

Good luck!

Thanks ! I was only too lazy for looking up the number of the PantherAbt ...

OK , a little bit more difficult ! Everybody knows the Tiger mentioned in the Tiger-Fibel with more than 200 hits ?

I want the place & date of the fight it got the hits and its turret number . The unit it belonged , too .
