Hello all
I'm trying to find out the number of the King Tiger tank that Kurt Knispel commanded in the period March/April 1945.
I've been searching for several months with no success.
Any help will be much appreciated.

That's quite a mystery.
All I can say is that the first number is "1", since he served in 1st Company/schw. Pz.Abt. 503.;)
However it's told that he switched tanks shortly before he was killed on April 28, 1945 and commanded a tank of 3rd Company.
