653 Wrecks Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

Eppelheim, 30 March 1945

During the late afternoon of 28 March 1945, the German LXXX corps received as reinforcement the s.Pz. Jg. Abt. 653 with 8 operational Jagdtigers. The Abteilung was attached to the 559. VGD, however, it should be used on the south bank of the Neckar.

On 29 March, the 324th US IR attacked to the Neckar River and crossed it in the SECKENHEIM-NECKARHAUSEN area. The German LXXX corps informed of a counterattack supported by Jagdtigers against the Americans.

On 30 March, the CCB of the 10th US AD crossed the Neckar in Mannheim and continued its advance to the south. TF Richardson continued the attack down the autobahn and by 1430 received fire from an undetermined number of Tiger tanks from EPPELHEIM. At 1545, three Tiger tanks engaged the lead Elms of the TF and one of them was knocked out at 1600.

The German tanks were retreating through the Autobahn cross from Eppelheim to Heidelberg. The American spearhead opened fire on the German tanks, causing great damages to the houses in the high Hauptstraße. The last German tank also received a shot in the chain. The tank rolled backwards down the embankment slope, and kept the Americans under fire still for for a while. The German crew left out the tank, still calmly took lunch in the kitchen of the Treiber house, then went out, blown up their tank and then went on foot towards Pleikartsförsterhof.

The tank remained still for a long time by the autobahn cross and then it was scrapped. According to information of the former chairmann of the Reitervereins, in the 60s there was a rumor that stated the wreck lay in a waste pit on which, meanwhile, the horse-riding arrangement was furnished. The ground was explored by a special searching vehicle, but no indication of the armoured wreck was found.

After the war Hans Fath cut a piece of the destroyed Jagdtiger armor to make a Richtplatte. Today that table is at the Schlosserei Fath in Attigweg.

Unteröwisheim, 31 March 1945

The house on the Jagdtiger picture of Mr Georges Garland seems the one at Am Gaisberg 1, Unteröwisheim. Close to this house is a wharehouse. Today it is the home of the Unteröwisheimer Kerschdekipper association. The chairman of the association knew that the building was used as a “Dreschhalle” time ago and from a talk with a local woman he also learned that the “Dreschhalle” was used as a repair hall for army tank at the end of the 2nd world war. Although the size of the building has not changed, in 1945 it has timber walls.

Unfortunately, no more news up today

Etterschlag, 28/29 April 1945

During the last days of April 1945 three German Jagdtiger arrived to Etterschlag. A villager told that the tanks seemed to be gigantic and the road and houses trembled when they passed. Many years later the traces of the track links could be seen on the street.

The track of one of three tanks broke and then it was pulled to the end of the Munich street on the current Sedlmair barn. The crew tried to weld the broken links, but finally the Jagdtiged was blow up. The driver of a Kübelwagen ignored the warnings to stop and the vehicle with its crew flew in the air by the explosion.

http://i1176.photobucket.com/albums/x331...zps791d60cc.jpg

Later the tank was pushed aside by the Americans because it was standing in the middle on the street. The tank still stood years on Münchner Straße and was taken apart piece to piece by scrap merchants and also by farmers.

In the afternoon of 29 April two German tanks passed through Weßling, so most probably these were the remaining two Jagdtigers in the way to Unterbrunn.


Americans filmed a movie on the destroyed tank: four American tanks drove abreast from the east over the surrounding fields towards the sprinkled tank, a shot was delivered hitting the already destroyed tank. The ammunition began to explode, the tank became red-hot and then the Americans ended their film.

The cross which is seen in the 1945 pictures was reestablished today at other place.

- From the Chronic of Etterschlag

Unterbrunn, 29/30 April 1945

By the early morning of 30 April 1945, the German troops have left Gauting. A big tiger tank stood near the railway station. The commander, a very young and small lieutenant from Freising, said to the expecting people that just the day before the Tiger had hit an American tank near Weßling. Under the pressure of a whole swarm of enemy tanks they had had to retreat. During the withdrawal, a second tiger broke down by Unterbrunn and was blown up. Now the commander was alone and did not know what would be far. The enemy could arrive in a few hours, perhaps in the afternoon.

- From the book “Als die Amis kamen“ by Rüdiger von Reichert

Leutnant Rudolf Braun, was from Freising, was young and not very big. He was in command of one of the last Jagdtiger of the Abt 653, so it is probable that the Tiger from Gauting ended in the Werkkanal of Kolbermoor.

Kolbermoor, 01 May 1945

On 01 May 1945, the 30th US IR was running to take the Inn bridges at Rosenheim and the CCR of the 12th US AD the bridge at Pfraundorf . At 1500 part of the CCR was in Pfraundorf and the double autobahn bridge across the Inn River and the railroad span were seized. Task Force Chaney was advancing to Bad Abling when at noon the Jagdtiger of Lt R. Braun arrived to Kolbermoor from Lohholz. But the antitank barriers in Ludwigstrasse were closed and the steel bridge through the werkkanal by the mill was the only way. Although there was a max load signal of 7.5 metric tons on the bridge and some people warned of the danger the Jagdtiger tried to cross the bridge slowly, but slowly it dropped. Only the long gun barrel "reached" the other side.

Rudolf Braun admitted that the decision to cross was too daredevil. But on account of the very hard martial law, no Jagdtiger could be abandoned to the enemy. Only two possibilities remained, to blow up the tank or to go through the bridge.

The 6 crew members could escape from the canal but dripping wet. Afterwards they could rescue from the vehicle all valuable devices like glasses or the radio equipment.

- From a talk in the Kolbermoor Hauptschülern


The tank still lay some weeks in the channel, but it was obstructing the water supply of the lower hydroelectric power plant whose performance went back about approximately 30 kilowatts. At the request of Bürgermeister Karl Staudter the tiger was rescued by the Americans at the end of May. Instead other people say that the Jagdtiger was rescued in July. Anyway, later it remained on the channel bank by the Sechs houses and was transported only in late 1945 to a collection point for former Wehrmacht property.

In the KH Munch book it is mentioned a second tank destroyer that turned around and continued towards Bad Aibling. Is there more information about this vehicle?

Near Weissenbach, May 1945 (??)

An information from Bad Ischl:

In 1945 a tiger tank remained lying near to Bad Ischl. In the following years it was dismantled by scrap dealers. A contemporary witness can still remember well the Jagdtiger, because he as a child looked for useful things in this tiger still in 1947.

The wreck place is in an unobstructed area with a smaller bridge 3-4 kms away from Weissenbach on the road between Attersee and Bad Ischl. The tiger did not tip over to the side, but remained in normal position in the brook bed.

The HQ of the Abt 653 was at Wei²enbach on 4 May and in Bad Ischl on 5 May 1945, so this place is on its way. Maybe a picture could confirm this information in the future.

Hello Javier,

Illertissen 24 April 1945

I have read in Panzerwrecks 18 that on 4 February 1945, Jagdtiger 211 ran out of fuel near Hatzenweier, Germany and was destroyed by its crew.
http://www.panzer-modell.de/ausgepackt/a...ecks/18_03g.jpg

On 5 Feb and on 10 March the Abt reported 41 JTs, so this information confirms that the unit received 43 JTs in total and discards the JT captured by the Americans from the report of the 10 SS Pz. Div. on 5 Feb 45.
But why do you need to destroy an expensive JT by lack of fuel when you are in the rearguard, the enemy is far away and there is a railway station near? I still think that the wreck place of JT211 found by Uli is the right one.

Hollenhof, 15 March 1945

To support the attack of the VI Corps on 15 March 1945, a counter battery fire program was prepared. By noon of the 15 March 85 positions were fired. After the attack 55 of these positions were inspected by officers from CB section and 2 FA Obsn Bn to check the effect of the fires. Among the material destroyed was a 128mm SP gun at coordinates 974-343, knocked out by a hit near the track. The SP was blown. (VI Corps Arty Periodic Reports)

At 1330 on 17 March 1945, the 1st Bn 410th IR (103th ID) moved from its position on the high ground east of Gundershoffen to Eberbach. The Bn closed in Eberbach at approx. 1545 by foot march.

Hallet K. Brown, from D Co 410th wrote the following about 17 march:
It was shortly after noon when we tailed on behind another part of our regiment and took off across country toward the main highway. We had the satisfaction of seeing one of the SP guns completely knocked out, nothing left but a burned out hulk. It was an enormous tractor-propelled cannon and we could see its tracks leading among the few houses standing and among the orchards and fields. It seems there were two SP guns and one of them had gotten away. The Air Corps had spotted this one, trailed it, and finally with a direct hit had set it on fire. We followed the main highway north, the same direction that Task Force Cactus had taken. Toward dusk we came to a GI-filled town and were forced to take billets in a barn

Nordheim, 5 April 1945

At 15:00 on 5 April, the S/Groupement de Chalain (CC5, 5 DB) attacked Nordheim from Grossgartach. The S/Groupement had to take the well defended hills around Nordheim to reach its outskirts. Then the village was attacked and overrun from the north and south-east. The defense was fierce. The houses were held by German infantry. One TD and 2 tanks were destroyed by bazookas.

Two enemy tanks were spotted on the ridges SE of the village. One of them was destroyed by the M. D. L. Rouxelin with the 76 of his tank. At 16:30 S/Groupement reported that they had destroyed a Jagdtiger. Later on, another two Jagdtigers abandoned and burned by their crews were found between Nordheim and Lauffen.

At 17h the cleaning of Nordheim was reported ended.

The Jagdtiger wreck stood by the road from Nordheim to Lauffen, near the crest of the first hill. In 1946 the Lauffen authorities asked permission to the US Military government to remove 3 Panzerwrecks in their area. In October 1948, an US Army demolition squad was sent to reduce the wrecks to small pieces for evacuation.

Nach meiner Information war der Jagdtiger met Kenzeichen 214 ausgefallen in Lauffen am Neckar am 6e April 1945.

Ich habe vielleicht ein anderer Jagdtiger, entweder derselber, ausgefallen an derselben Platz und Tag, aber nunmall nur identifiziert beim Kommandant, Unteroffizier Peter Kohns.

Is dass derselbe oder gab es 2 ausfälle dort auf derselbe Tag?

Hallo,

es dürfte sich um diesen hier handeln:

http://i37.tinypic.com/2yyy0rs.jpg

http://i34.tinypic.com/o85ehl.jpg

Gefunden hier: http://www.tiif.de/thread.php?threadid=156&page=1&sid=

Hier wird auf 'Gmund' am Tegernsee eingegangen. Könnte es nicht auch Gmunden am Traunsee/Österreich sein?

Im Münch-Buch steht zu lesen, dass sich die '653' um den 4.Mai '45 im Raum Weißenbach am Attersee, also ganz in der Nähe von Gmunden befunden haben soll.Das passt m.M.n. viel besser zusammen besonders mit dem beschrifteten Foto. Gmund = Gmunden ?

Gruß
Ronny

PS: Grad noch den Beitrag von Javier Tome gefunden, dürfte also passen mit Weissenbach/Gmunden:

"Near Weissenbach, May 1945 (??)

An information from Bad Ischl:

In 1945 a tiger tank remained lying near to Bad Ischl. In the following years it was dismantled by scrap dealers. A contemporary witness can still remember well the Jagdtiger, because he as a child looked for useful things in this tiger still in 1947.

The wreck place is in an unobstructed area with a smaller bridge 3-4 kms away from Weissenbach on the road between Attersee and Bad Ischl. The tiger did not tip over to the side, but remained in normal position in the brook bed.

The HQ of the Abt 653 was at Wei²enbach on 4 May and in Bad Ischl on 5 May 1945, so this place is on its way. Maybe a picture could confirm this information in the future."

Ich hab eine Gruppe auf Facebook und da wurde dieser Jagdtiger auch zur Weissenbach gedacht.

Ist Gmund nahe zu Weissenbach? Ich habe auf online Karten angesehen wo einander ist aber keine deutliche Bedeutung bekommen.

Die foto's meiner Meinung nach sind sicher derselbe Jagdtiger, kein Zweifel.

"Gmund" Jagdtiger Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

Hallo,

In Panzerwrecks 18 there is a good pic of the "Gmund" Jagdtiger. It is said that the Fahrgestell Nr is 30500x. Among the 10 first JTs there were only one Henschel type, 305002, and it was sent to Kummersdorf. Later it was transferred to Freistadt.

The Panzerwrecks 18 pics comes from an 11th AD veteran. So I prefer Gmunden to Gmund am Tegernsee as wreck place, as the 11th was in occupation duties in that area.

But the new pic is from the 12th AD collection. What about Schwabisch Gmünd? The 12th ended in Heidenheim after the war (40km apart). Who knows...

Morsbronn Wrecks? Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

Near Morsbronn, 17 March 45

On 15 March 45, the Seventh US Army began the Operation Undertone. As part of it the 36th US Inf Div crossed the Moder River and advanced to the German border.the first day of the offensive, the 141st and 142nd Inf Regs were fighting in Hagenau and Mertzwiller respectively, meanwhile the 143rd reached the Falkenstein River in front of Griesbach.

On the first hours of 16 march, the 143rd fought off an enemy counter-attack consisting of an estimated 50 Germans, supported by 2 Jagdtigers, which tried to reduce the small bridgehead across the Falkenstein River. The regiment´s advance continued and after noon the unit was mopping up Griesbach. Short after, twelve German tanks were located in and around the town of Forstheim. A flight of eight P-47s from the 314th FS was called to attack the tanks. At 1430A the fighters strafed and bombed the German armor. The P-47s reported two tanks destroyed and 7 damaged. The 36th ID instead informed of 3 tracked vehicles from four damaged in Forstheim.

Air Attack:

The 1st Battalion was then organized into a motorized column and moved out at 1745 hours trying to reach Soultz, but at the end of the day a destroyed bridge south of Eberbach stopped the advance at this point.

At 0500 hours, 17 March 1945, the motorized column continued its march to Gunstett. Two enemy tanks were encountered at the crossroad 1,5Km from the bridge. The Shermans from the 753rd Tk Bn fired on them and they were seen to be burning.

A Keystone Photo of Jagdtiger 332 was captioned as follows: “Giant German tank knocked out by US fighter-planes. Soldiers of the Seventh US Army examine a heavy Nazi “hunter” (Jagd Tiger) tank, one of four similar enemy war machines knocked out by US P-47 Thunderbolt fighter-bombers operating in support of American soldiers stricking from Alsace into the Reich.”

But from the memories of Horst Theis and Franz Kurrer Jagdtiger 314 broke down after negotiating a winding road up a mountain, and had to be blown up at 0430 hours on the morning of 17 March 1945, when American troops got too close. The terrain fits and the time matches.

From photographs seems that Jagdtiger 332 was close to 314. Unfortunately, although the road from the bridge to Gunstett can be followed through Google Maps, I can recognize the wreck place at any point. Any opinion?

Hi Javier,

Great research as usual.



Can't help much on the location other than to say '314' seems to be sitting at the end of a bend in the road. The parked truck suggests there may be a junction by the bend.

Your statement "From photographs seems that Jagdtiger 332 was close to 314 " suggests that you think the JT in the background of the gallery photo below is '332'.



Looking at the JT's attitude and position on the skyline I would suggest that it resembles this unknown posted by Mario rather than '332'

.

HTH,

Chris.

332 or not?

Thanks for the feedback Chris. Maybe I talked too quickly. I always have thought that the pictures of JT314 and JT332 were part of the same sequence. But to comfirm if the JT on the background is 332 or not I only have found these hints.

- Horst Theis: “Our tank destroyer—Jagdtiger 314—together with Feldwebel Telgmann's Jagdtiger 322 had to be blown up at 0430…” Maybe after all, 322 is not a typo.

- The caption of one JT332 pic says the photo was taken in Morsbronn area.

- The trees in the attached photo seem the same.

Not too much unfortunately.

There is no doubt that the Jagdtigers are "314" and "332"

Look at the spare tracks of "332"

Morsbronn wreck place?

Hi Mario
Good news, because there are two houses behind JT332 which could be the ones near the crossroad

Langenbrand or Böhl? Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

Hi

A blurry picture from the 12th Armored in March 1945 has a skyline similar to the one of the "Langenbrand" Jagdtiger. Maybe this is the Böhl wreck after all?

Böhl Jagdtiger Wreck Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       IP Information Zum Anfang der Seite springen

Böhl, 22 March 1945

A link between the US 12th Armored Division and French forces is that due to the slow passage through the Germersheim bridge and the insufficient traffic of the 10-ton Speyer bridge, the Americans authorized part of the French troops to cross the Rhine through the Mannheim bridge. Someone took the "Langenbrand" pic on the way to Ludwigshafen.

Wreck place Meckenheimer Str. 1:
