Someone linked to these at ML:http://www.g503.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=146363 . I post two of the images here for discussion purposes only. They're purportedly taken in Czechia at the very end. Assuming for now that the Panthers and Jagdpanther are from the same unit, 25.PD is the obvious guess, but I dunno. Can anyone decipher the emblem on the turret? It doesn't seem to be any of the "zahn" variations, but I can't turn it into of the divisional symbols for the other PDs that got pushed into Bohemia. Is it a regimental symbol? Anyone? Buehler?

Hi Cran

Unfortunately, I have no idea who this unit is, but I can add speculation that '952' could also a hand me down from an SS Panther Regt, just like '99' of I,/SS-Pz.Rgt.2 which has been renumbered and can be seen in the same Znomjo dump as other Panthers with the same unit symbol.

The numbering of the '9's is different between the two Panthers, and looks more like the style of 'AJ9' to me, which I think has been identified as 9SS?





I've also attached other pics of Panthers from this unit, as seen in the Znomjo dump (via Panzerwrecks).

Disregard my previous post.

Tomas Jakl has provided further info on this unit, and states it has been identified as 25PD.
