The license number SS-5421 was used for Panzerjäger-Abteilung of SS-Division "Reich". The car shows the tactical symbol of anti tank unit, so it matches.

Anyone an idea about this Steinbock/ibex? It's a Heer unit and the photo was made in Ukraine/Russia.

Hi Sudhafen
I have been trying for better part of a year to ID this marking and tie it to a specific unit. So far I have only been able to speculate that it is likely part of a Gebirgsjager unit.

This may be a long shot, but for a while I've been trying to ID what unit one of my uncles belonged to.

I only have a few photos to go off, this being one of them.

Can anyone make out the license plate details or perhaps ID this DAK vehicle? There was only a few DAK divisions so I'm hoping by figuring out this vehicle i can narrow down his unit.

Hello all,

I need some help identifying this Panzer unit sign / Emblem, skull on tank.
Date and place are unknown but it must be Eismeer front / Russia in 1941 /1942.
Picture belonged to a photo grouping of Gebirgsjäger Regiment 136 / 2. Gebirgs Division.

I do not think it is Pz.Rgt.18 of 18. Panzer-Division because they did not operate so high North in Russia / Finnland.

Does anyone knows to whitch division / unit this panzer belonged?



Thanks and best regards!

You haven't had a reply because you have already committed yourself to saying that it isn't what it very clearly is, 18 Panzer Division, specifically 11./PR 18. Are there actually Gebirgsjäger in the full photograph ? Or is the photograph just included with others of them ?

Hello, thank you for your answer.
I thought maybe there is an other unit that also uses a type of skull as a unit sign, that is why i excluded the 18. PD for this picture.
In the whole picture are Gebirgsjäger inspecting the tank, after it is taken out by anti tank fire and tumbled on its turret in a snow covered landscape.

In fact, skull over the water emblem was used by Panzer-Abteilung 160 ( one of the descendant formation of Panzer-Regiment 18). But here, the 11th Kompanie (which means a 3-Abteilung Regiment), is definitely from PR18.

Akiri, was it actually used officially by Pz Abt 160 or was it just that when I./PR 18 was renamed to Pz Abt 160 that the vehicles just had it painted on them ? In the same way that III./PR 18 was renamed to Pz Abt 103 and its vehicles still have the skull and water sign on them. Alan

Jason Mark should have the definitive answer but I believe Pz.Abt.160 officially kept using the same sign.
