Schutzen Motorised Patrol (p.60)

Pics I've seen show the 250/1 with MG fore and aft so should not the "3 men" come with an MG34?

All pics of the 250/1 in 1941 have two MGs?



Actually most pics I find, and there ain't many 250/1 around in the summer of 41, show a single vehicle MG. 

The November 44 tables give six LMG per platoon, I'd have to see what the earlier tables list.

The November 41 kstn had 6 lmg per platoon and 1 per 250. I would post link but need to wait a few days being a new member. I don't think there was an official organisation earlier than that.

wwiidaybyday.com has nice visualizations of KSTN's. Click on "Kriegsstärkenachweise" then choose "Panzertruppen" scroll down to the first KSTN number 1113. There you will find the "Panzer-Aufklärungskompanie (gepanzert), KStN.1113 (gp) 1.11.1941".

Each Zug (platoon) has 14 l.MG including those mounted on the 8 SdKfz 250. Each Gruppe (squad) consist of 12 men, including the drivers of the 2 SdKfz 250.

By the way, the l.Mg of the Schützen section is often stored inside the SdKfz, this might be the cause why there is no MG on the aft pintle mount.

Thanks fellas. Great photos. I'll just leave the LMG on the rear mount of my PSC 250/1.
