7th PzDiv -12th K

An old copy of Bruce Quarries "Panzers in Russia 1941-42" has given up some helpful images.

  His efforts in the late 70s in the Budesarchiv brought some interesting examples in to the light of day.

This image is assigned to the 7th PzDiv and we can just make out a 12?? on the third vehicle in the column. The assumption is therefore that all vehicle belong to that unit however the first panzer carries a box on its right fender where the jack should be. This doesn't fit with images I have of 12th K without this box and without the jack moved.

There are also no fittings, fore and aft for the long beam one would associate with the Division.
