Response to Looking for help with Panther units

 

Hi Neil

You're probably aware that MAN is the main assembly plant to paint on chassis numbers. DB have in some instances stenciled the number on zimmeritted examples, and I personally am not aware of an MNH Panther with a chassis number. However, you'd think there must be.

The three examples found in the Jentz book are factory shots (hence no BK's), prior to being handed over to the Army, and I believe you will have to be pretty lucky to match any of those to the receiving units.

As to your question, I can be of assistance in regards to a few MAN numbers:

1./SS-Pz.Rgt.1

'121037' = '201' ASW
'121080' = '052' Befehls
'121153' = '211' (sourced from DITM, page 287)


I./SS-Pz.Rgt.2

'121190' unknown tac number

I./SS-Pz.Rgt.12

'121137' = '125'
'121146' = '327'
'121051' ASW unknown tac number


Pz.Div Herman Goring

'121039' ASW unknown tac #
'121081' = 'R01' Befehls


I.Pz.Rgt.16 (116PD Windhund)

'121026' zimmeritted, unknown tac #
'121230' unkownn tac #
'121290' unknown tac #


I hope these can be of some assistance, and can you please provide a valid email address. happy.gif
