I see, you meant Tiger 141 was a loss at Beja. I forgot about that and had still in mind he wasn´t there at the time because of engine problems.
Ok, 141 was out too and it dos not make it easier.

Like allways on this point we have more Tigers in the lists as possible. So at least #711 should be a ghost.


I see Tiger 722 is documented but 714 not. How is 722 documented? Both Tigers are on the english wreck list.

But the idea of a existing Tiger 711 should come from somewhere.


The 2./501 didn´t exist anymore but was integrated in the 1./501 what carry numbers with "7" now.

Staff Tiger as before with unclear use.

Chief of 1. Kompanie as before Tiger #71

Chief of 2. Kompanie now Zugführer probably of the 1.Zug in Tiger #712

Zugführer of the 4.Zug 2.Kompanie with Tiger #241/841 now as Halbzugführer in the 1.Zug in probably the other last remaining(working) Tiger from former 2.Komp in #714.This is with Tiger #813 also thinkable.

Zugführer in the still existing 2.Zug Tiger #121 now Tiger #721.

Zugführer in #141 of the 4.Zug before wich was deletetd now in Tiger #722.

Halbzugführer in #112 in 1.Zug still existing but filled up with Tigers of the former 2.Kompanie now as Halbzugführer in Tiger 724 of the 2.Zug.

3.Zug no change with Tigers eccept the turret number changed to #731 and #732.

Dos this make any sense to you?

We had still 01 and 02 (probably)

Is 711 confirmed somewhere as being a Tiger?

"This "pair of twos" is not visible in any photo, but the author or his interviewee had first-hand knowledge of the tank, and we have no reason to mistrust them."

The photos are by far clear enough and thats exactly a reason to misstrust that report. There isn´t a sign in any way for a former "2" under the "1" in the middle and no sign of a former "1" under the "2" at the end. But we see clearly the old "2" and the old "8" under the new "7" thats a fact.

"We know now that the original "21" was badly shot up."

Is that true? I missed something I guess....



Was it possible that a extra Tiger with chassis number 250059 was delivered on December 1942 in Tunisia?

That is a date Schneider gives too in his TIK1 and TIK2(059), but it means not delivered to the the unit but delivered to Tunisia. But if that was a new one, why would it send to the unit while they was full equiped? Sending a new Tiger would mean one of the 501 Tigers was lost before the unit was shipped to tunisia. Procedure: One Tiger was found useless in the training days with 501, they send him back to factory and they get a new one as replacement. But they would not get any extra Tiger for overstrenght!

We never had seen Tiger 221 so far and the mysterious 250059 could be possible a replacement for him, because the original 221 has never reached Tunisia. Otherwise I would say that the 9.December was a impossible time frame to arrive the replacement tank for a Tiger wich was lost in a fight in Tunisia. Personly I would say there was not any replacement for a lost Tiger in Tunisia possible because once they had reached Tunisia they were cut out from any supplies over the sea way and were lost long before the end.

Can it be a coincidence that this Tiger was one of the first losses of 501 and thats the reason why we had never seen him too? It would make sense because the chassis was found turretless after end of campaign in german quarters if I understand it right.

It seems that in 2./501 was no tanker with a camera but only in 1./501. So this fact and the possible early loss of 250059 could be a reason for the absence of any photo. Another reason could be, that he never get any unit typical future or turret number before his breakdown. It would be possible that he was photographed, but we found nothing to ID him as a 501 Tiger.

On the other hand we know how a mistake was born and make his way to many stations. If Klages and Schneiders chassis number is based on the report from Tunisia only, than it is a explanation. It could be a guess by both(or they take it from each other) if the chassis number is not approved by a delivery report from Waffenamt. I think many of the chassis numbers in connection with the delivery dates are based on research but not on documents. Example: Schneider found a delivery from factory/Waffenamt to 501 on 9.December 1942 and he also was aware of the english report of Tunisia where he found a chasssi number 200059 documented. He would (logical) guess that the delivery date and that number belongs together. But that would mean not, that the number in the english report is not a mistake. May it was 019 or 029 but not 059 and it gave the base for any further mistakes?

GD deleted the smoke grenade launcher, but not the holder wich was welded on the turret. Here it seems the holders were cut off, what was seen on "Totenkopf" Tigers. And thats what I would say, it looks more like a Tiger of 4./9. SS, but the soldiers are not looking like SS men actually.

Photo question Dale 25.01.2017 18:07 Forum: Tiger zuordnen

This is a pic Dale Ritter send me today with following information:



"I am attaching a photo -- It comes from a member of 505 but he provided no caption. I looked through "Tigers im Focus" and I did not find it on there.
It looks like a Stabs-Tiger -- almost can make out the Roman Numeral(s) on the turret. My initial thought was that it might be the Tiger that Hauptmann Nostitz-Wallwitz was wounded in on September 15, 1943 -- but I'm not sure if that Tiger was a total loss.

This one looks like it was used for parts --
On that same day, Tiger 311 was destroyed by its own crew...

I appreciate any thoughts -- "

What is your opinion on Panzer III #813.


This is an interesting and unexpected number to find on a Pz.3

The renumbering of the tanks after Ochsenkopf seems somewhat chaotic and this has not yet been explained. Some tanks kept their final 2 digits, while others were unnecessarily given entirely different numbers.

I propose that it was a 2 stage process. The survivors of the 2nd company, now the 8 company, renumbered themselves first. They organised the fragments of the old platoons into a single new platoon. They had 3 Tigers left (81, 813, 821). They assigned the numbers 811, 812, 814 for Tigers and 813, 815 for Pz.3. The photo shows the result.

Then later, the two companies combined and everybody got a leading 7 digit. The former 1 company tanks filled out the next 2 platoons, with an effort being made to retain their old digits if possible. Tigers 111 and 112 could not go into the new 1st platoon so they got entirely different numbers, with 111 becoming 71 and 112 becoming 724 as we know. I am betting that 121 became 721.

I think this tank was 212, then 812 (with a black 8), then 813, and finally 713.

David




Schneider in his TIK1 gives a tank number list for the 7.Komp. of 10.PD wich I think is incorrect for the time frame he put it in. But as a end configuration it seems very correct, I mean including the Tigers from the 8.Komp.

He give:

1. Zug Tiger 711, Tiger 712 and Tiger 714
2. Zug Tiger 721, Tiger 722 and Tiger 724
3. Zug Tiger 731 and Tiger 732
Rest was filled up with Panzer III.

Probably the 8.Komp. still exist but only with Panzer III and Panzer IV.

There is some logic in that organisation because they had Zugführer Tigers left with Tiger 121, Tiger 131,Tiger 141 and Tiger 221.

So the 3. Zug was leading as known with 131=731.

The 2.Zug as known by 121 = 721.

4.Zug dosn´t exist anymore and so 141 jumped in as 722.

1.Zug was leading by 221 = 711 and so the tanker who know each other from the 2./701 stay together in the 1.Zug.

But of course, this configuration was made by question of personal I guess.

Tiger 111 and his commander became chief of the Kompanie and the Tiger was #71 therefore.
That mean the 1.Zug of 1./501 dosn´t exist anymore and was for the 7.Komp. organised new with
Tiger 221(821?)=711(Zugführer), Tiger 81(21,81,712)=712 and Tiger 813=714.
There was no place for 112 in the 1.Zug now and he jumped to the end of the 2.Zug with #724.

We have a total of 10 Tigers left from 701 and Schneider forgot just Tiger 71 and Tiger 01 in his list.

That is what I can imagine about the oganisation logic.

- If both "21" and "221" have folding fenders, the Manouba Tiger becomes difficult to explain, and the damaged Tiger from Robaa also becomes troublesome.

He could be as good Tiger 211/811, wich we only see in parts at Beja. Except from the fact that the front lower hull plate on Beja 811 seems not to show any signs of a 2.Komp. typical spare track rack.

I still go with Tiger 21 for the later 712. What we see on Tiger 712 is a changed turret number but with his original "1" still in position. We know now Tiger 21 had second version mudflaps and so we can minimize the possibilities and don´t think there was another Tiger with this features.
Tiger 21/712 had no Feifels and mounted jerry can instead.

That leaves me with a question. Which Tiger of the 2nd company suffered damage at Robaa and was given a new turret?




The diagram suggests folding fenders. so we have only 4 candidates; 221, 213, 21 and possibly 211.
The first two on that list did not have the damage shown in the hull diagram.


Was it 211 or 21?

David.





To me this diagram still shows 231.

Thats true, but on the other side we know(so far) early Tigers only in the staff.
On the other hands they had Befehlswagen for Kompanie chief. It is maybe possibly that we have here the small and the big Befehlswagen. The Befehlswagen of Kompanie chiefs don´t had the biggest radio equipment and therefore no need to remove turret MG ?

What is your new(sharper) photo of that wreck saying about the turret number. Isn´t there a "1" possibly an so it could be the chief Tiger of the 2.Kompanie?

You are right possibly, but I would make my opinion to the two points.

1. That the tube is removed means actually nothing, because we have seen a lot of Stabstiger with removed star antenna tubes. Some had it on the side etc.

2. On the first photo from the back(where he is in a row with staff Tiger btw.), we can´t say that this is the same turret as on the later photo of the wreck. Maybe the turret was changed? Or did you find some point that it is the same turret on both photos? I didn´t...

I wondering about the size of the tarp. We should know first for what this tarp was.
I guess we are talking about a tarp for the engine deck. But the size would be to small then and it had to be around 2800 mm.

Afaik we have no reference for that tarp, but it had to be waterproofed.
Judged by the time frame it must be a cotton cloth waterproofing coated. It was a relatively heavy material about 800 gr/qm. Thats what they use in these days.
