Panzergrenadier

Introduction. 5 Jul 1942, Berlin, according to Allg.Heeresmitteilungen 581/42 all Schützen-Regimenter in Panzer-Divisionen were renamed and reorganized Panzergrenadier-Regimenter for boosting morale and extending the tradition of Prussian Army. The transformation was not title only, with the increased providing of MTW into Schützen-Regiment after 1942 the weapons and fighting technique of them also had been changed. However, the production of MTW still could not catch up with the need so most of Panzer-Divisions had only one battalion equipped with MTW, some of them had only one company equipped with MTW and few of them even did not have any MTW before the Operation of Blau in 1942. No matter they were equipped with MTW or not, they were all named Panzergrenadier-Regiment.
