The tanks

I/SS.Pz.Rgt 3 had the Deathshead painted in white on the front left and right rear of their tanks. The numbering system seems to be the standard numbering, ie 122, 1Kp, 2 Zug, 2 Panzer. The 1 Kompanie numbers were painted in red with a white out line. 2 and 3 Kompanie had solid white painted numbers, 4 Kompanie had solid white numbers with a black out line. The Stabs.Kp. had a white out lined number painted on the turret sides. Now, the symbols painted on the turret rear escape hatch, personally I think these ID which tank came from which Kompanie, I know Panther 111 had a huge Deathshead painted in white on the escape hatch. Meierdress Panther, had a black square, with a white out line and in the centre, a white painted Deathshead. The Regimental Bef.Wg, from one photo I've seen had a white painted R followed by the standard 01, etc. As for camouflage patterns, the tanks seemed to be coated in green/brown over coat on top of the factory yellow. All Panthers had the Zimmert coating as well.

The Abteilungs Kompanien are placed in various locations, 1 Kp is near Suchozerby.
