1. Panzer-Division panzer strength in Nov 1943

Post by Kelvin » 19 Mar 2018 07:55

In accordance with Kamen Nevenkin book Fire Brigades, 1. Pz.division had 95 x Pz IV, 76 x Panther, 7 x Flammpanzer III, 8 x V1801 and 2 x V1601, but no much more detail on that. I would like to ask if any member has some Operational/repair on that Division's Panzer before she rejoined the Russian Front again in November 1943 ? Thank

According to original documents, it covers every 10 days.
Meaning it covers 11.10.1943 , 11.11.1943 , 11.12.1943 , 11.13.1943 .... 11.19.1943 , 11.20.1943 but
the documents do not cover every single day. It is only every 10 days.

Do the 4.Pz.Armee documents list other divisional vehicles and weapons i. e. flak, mortars, Pak, artillery, mg. etc?
It is interesting to note that during 43-45, full strength Panzer divs or Soviet tank corps newly arriving at the front after refitting will typically see their tank strength drop rapidly from about 100 or more down to 20-30 within a couple weeks of combat. After that, numbers of MBT tended to stabilize arpund 20 for awhile before eventually losing all of them.

Yes, the document does contain other divisional vehicles and weapons but not much on artillery. Most are for armored vehicles.
