Mountain, light, jaeger, skijaeger, some LW divisions that were taken over by the Heer, and some other stuff. I don't have as much time as i did to devote to this, but the smaller scope means that i should be able to finish it in a reasonable amount of time. Assuming i can find sources on the TO&E of these things, that is.
Can you please tell me what Assault Squads are supposed to represent and why you only have 18 Engineer Squads in a 1. Welle Division (should be 9X3?).
Also where do you get that the 20mm flak were part of the Regiments? AFAIK the Flak Bttr were added to the Art Abt as attachments later in the war.
The Div nA:
- you have Hvy Rifle AT Squads (supposed to represent sMG Teams) even though I never heard about sMG teams having Pz Fausts?
- the Pionier Bat has 48! Squads? I know the Inf Regiments were supposed to have up to 6 Squads, but I can't see the Pio Bat alone having 48 (3x16?)
- Artillerie is definitely wrong. According to Deutsche Artillerie 1934-45 Engelmann/Scheibert, the dotation for a Inf Div44 was 36 10.5 and 9 15.5 from 4.3.44 onward. Previously the 25.th - 29.th waves had a mix of 7.5/8.8 ArtPakAbteilungen (6x7.5 or 3x8.8 per bttr) plus 2 x le Abt (12x10.5) and a s Abt (8-12x15).
Well, the right/wrong discussion is a matter of interpretation of the KStN. I got a complete list and collection of various .PDF from websites, TO&E etc. that I can share.
The PiBtl should have around 24-36 'pure' squads and perhaps 8-12 ferry engineers to reflect the Brücken Kolonne.
The engineer battalion (partly motorized) was made up of battalion staff,
intelligence platoon (mot.), 1st and 2nd engineer companies
(horsedrawn), 3rd engineer company (mot.), bridge column B (mot.) and
light engineer column (horsedrawn). Its entire complement numbered 17
officers, 1 administrator, 60 non-commissioned officers, 442 engineers, 14
saddle horses, 38 draft horses, 19 horsedrawn vehicles, 9 cars, 24 motor-
cycles and 38 trucks (not counting the bridge and light engineer col-
As for the artillery... the 24 x 10.5cm and 12 x 15cm seems to be the average/norm; not that they always were able to fill the KSt up in later days of WW2.
An artillery regiment consisted of:
- Regimental staff with staff battery
- Three light units, each with a staff battery and three batteries of
four light 18 field howitzers (FH 18) each, 36 1FH 18 in all
- One heavy unit with a staff battery and three batteries, each with
four heavy 18 field howitzers (sFH 18), 12 sFH 18 each
- Supply trains.
Again, it's how one interprets the KStN and the roster/TO&E is a good overall guidance.
