**** SPECIAL 111th Panzerz Brigade Notes *****

The above listed OoB is the paper strength. The 111th had been engaged
in defensive battles before the Arracourt assault and lost heavily. The night
before the Arracourt battle,111th PzBde had 19 MkVs (4 stands) and 6
(2 stands) MkIVs operational. After the battle,the bde had 20 MkVs and
10 MkIVs in ALL conditions. In the Arracourt battle, the JgdPz IV/70 coy was attached directly to the MkIV bn (not officially part of the battalion, though).
The infantry in the 111th PzBde should be shown to be about 1/2 strength
due to previous engagements and lack of training.
