DAK Heavy Tank Battalion 501st Diorama

Post by yaminz on Wed Apr 18, 2012 4:15 am

About battalion 501st:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The first heavy armor units in the German Army were the 501st and 502nd heavy tank companies, founded 16 February 1942. They were combined into the 501st heavy tank battalion on 10 May 1942 in Erfurt, commanded by Major Hans-Georg Lueder.

In late August, the first Tiger Is began to arrive, delivery priority having been given to the formation of the 502nd heavy tank battalion.The 501st was promised to Field Marshal Erwin Rommel for use in North Africa, and was prepared for tropical operations.
Initially, the battalion consisted of 20 Tiger I and 25 Panzer III Ausf N.

German heavy tank battalions were initially planned to be composed of two companies, each with four platoons of two Tigers and two Panzer IIIs. Each company commander would have an additional Tiger, and battalion command would have another two, for a total of 20 Tigers and 16 Panzer III.

North Africa

Following the Allied landing in French North Africa the battalion began to be moved to Tunisia.

All of the Tigers and 16 Panzer IIIs arrived in Tunisia between 23 November 1942 and 24 January 1943.

Initially only three Tiger Is of the 501st landed at Tunis on 23 November 1942. These first elements of the battalion, along with four Panzer IIIs, were organised with other units into Kampfgruppe Lueder. They were involved in fighting just over a week later during the Axis counterattack on 1 December, destroying nine US and two British tanks on the first day while relieving German forces.

Some issues about Tiger 1 used by 501st, some account said Tiger 1 is paint with Green as based on eyes wittness account. Confirm that Tiger 1 is not paint in Desert Yellow as being used by DAK at that time as this Tiger 1 coming shortly after Operation Tourch, means it will carry base Dark Yellow as usual color for Werhmarch esp at Russia front.

Main issues is either to use Green or Dark Yellow...
