During the past 2 1/2 years several changes have taken place in the
distinctive uniforms worn by German armored-force personnel, armored-car
personnel, and self-propelled antitank gun crews. The latest information
indicates that these soldiers now wear the following types of uniform:
(a) Tank and armored-car personnel
Special black uniform, with a black field-service cap or a steel helmet
instead of the beret formerly worn. Armored-car personnel may also wear a
protective camouflage uniform of greenish drill similar to the black uniform.
(b) Armored troops other than tank and armored-car personnel
Ordinary field-gray uniform and a steel helmet.
(c) Crew of medium self propelled antitank gun
A gray uniform of the same cut as the tankmen's black uniform, with
gray field-service cap or a steel helmet.
(d) Pz. Kw. 38 (T) and medium armored troop-carrier personnel
Same uniform as tank personnel, but with the beret.
