Dave,

may I be so bold as to ask what FG unit would have been attached to 21st Panzer Div, 125th Panzer Gren Reg and what the FPN would have been?

Kind regards,

Ged

FG Trupp for 21st Panzer was FG Trupp 200. This was a type b trupp (typical for Armoured Divisions) and the manpower was: 3 officers, 58 non-commissioned officers, 3 other ranks, 43 rifles, 21 pistols, 7 MPi, 2 lMG, 16 motorcyles (4 with a sidecar), 14 light cars, 1 medium truck. FPN was 36101, through I think this may be for when they were with the DAK. I'd need to check further.

125 Pz Gr Regt didn't have any assigned FG as they were subordinate directly to the Division and not lower echelons.
