Introduction. Basic to the organization of the German motorization force was Panzer-Division. It was, in theory, a balanced team of all arms - tank, infantry, artillery, anti-tank and engineers - well blended together to produce the combination of maximum striking power, high speed across country, and complete flexibility in response to enemy action demanded by the rapid, independent thrusting movements of panzer warfare. So the initial organization of "Versucus Panzer-Division 1934/1935" (experimental Panzer-Division) distributed within the Heeres on 12 Oct 1934 had already consisted of the components listed above, although in a fair proportion. The experimental Panzer-Division heritaged the traditional "Binary Formation" in Schnelle Truppen during World War I. The Panzer-Division consisted one Panzer-Brigade of two Panzer-Regiments, each with two battalions, one Schützen-Brigade of one, 2 battalions, lorry-borne Schützen-Regiment, and one Kradschützen-Bataillon, and one Artillerie-Regiment (mot) with two battalions as her major strike forces. This made the ratio between tank and infantry to be 4 : 3 in the battalion level, a little weaker in the infantry power.
