SolSolari Posted April 22, 2012 Share Posted April 22, 2012 I was wondering if someone could help me. I am playing out a campaign with a friend of mine and I am concerned that there may have been some confusion over what a Panzerjager Battalion is comprised of for D-Day on Juno beach. According to one source I've read a Panzerjager Battalion (the 352nd's) had the following units: 352. Panzerjäger Abteilung 14 x Marder II and Marder III variant Panzerjäger 10 x StuG III Ausf. G assault guns 9 x FlaKPanzer 38 Self-Propelled Flak Another Unit, the 716th's had: 4x Self-Propelled 7.5cm Pak 40 (a) 3x 7.5cm PaK 40 1x 8.8cm PaK 43/41 1x 2cm Flak or 10 heavy AT guns on tracked chassis. (some kind of locally made conversion) eleven heavy AT guns (not motorized). 6 Of the AT guns that were not on tracked chassis, probably two were 8,8 cm Pak 43/41 and nine were 7,5 cm Pak 40.7 The AT guns on tracked chassis were 7,5 cm Pak 40.8 I have 3 questions: 1) Is the 352nd's formation unusually strong for a Panzerjäger Battalion or standard strength at this period in Normandy? 2) What would a standard strength of Panzerjäger Battalion of the period (in general accepting the usual statements that german formations tended not to be standard) be comprized of? 3) Does anyone have a better idea what the 716th's Panzerjäger Battalion unit was comprised of? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
