For "Das Reich" I have 15 StuGIII ,33 PzIII,7 PzIV and 1 PzVI Tiger (commander SS-obersharfuhrer Paul Egger)on the 20th of February.
For the "LAH" my numbers are a bit different:22 StuGIII,12 PzII, 10 PzIII,45 PzIV and 21 command tanks(either PzIII or PzIV),no tiger recorded for the 19th of February.(source G M Nipe Jr "last victory in Russia)
GD:7 PzIV and 3 PzIII on the 11th of February.
9 PzIII,39 PzIV,6 Flammpanzer and 6 PZ VI Tiger on the 11th of March(source H-J Jung "Panzerregiment GrossDeutschland")
Totenkopf: 62 PzIII,18 PzIV and 9 PzVI Tiger on the 22nd of February(source C Trang "Totenkopf")
I'll try to dig some more.
