Panzerwrecks 14: Comments from Stefano Di Giusto!

Stefano Di Giusto contacted us a few days ago with information regarding some of the vehicles in Panzerwrecks 14. Over to you Stefano:

I have received Panzerwrecks 14 a few days ago, interesting as always.

I have a couple of comments on some photos:

  • Page 54: the insignia painted on the Sd.Kfz.250 is from Heeres-Artillerie-Brigade 88 (formerly Art.Rgt. 88 from 18. Artillerie-Division).
    Note the Heeres-Artillerie-Brigade 88 insignia on the mudguard

  • Page 63, top photo: this Panther is indeed from I.Abt./Pz.Rgt.26 as shown by the small black panther’s head painted just in front of the turret number; this insignia is seen on many photos of Panthers from the Abteilung operating with PzGrenDiv GD in Lithuania in summer 1944.
  • Page 62, top photo: also from I.Abt./Pz.Rgt.26, the small clear patch in front of the paint covering the turret side number probably covered the panther’s head.
  • Page 77, the Pz IV with the heart: I attach another e-bay image, the tank is not the same (the heart is not exactly in the same place) but the unit must be the same; this tank also carries a white half-circle on the front plate however I do not know which unit this might be.

    Note the heart insignia
