The question is what was the total score of assault gun kills for Oblt.R. Walter Oberloskamp. He had about four years of WWII mostly on the Eastern front. Among his score were 40 kills against tanks in one day!! He was killed in action in the middle in of 1944. He was a Knight's Cross holder. Surely Oberloskamp had made a lot more kills besides his best day of 40 kills.

Time for an update with some changes and adjustments. I removed Barkmann because it seems that Barkmann never gave any number of his Panzer kills, he didn't know his score exactly. And according to Carius he only counted when he was a gunner. Strange enough there's a counting known of 68 as Commander.
Brommann's total is even higher; 72 Panzer in a time period of only 2 months!
I can't find anything on Ernst Beloch but when you know that he was 'already' killed in Dec. 1944 and 'only' was awarded with a German Cross with 103 kills you can be sure that these were Panzer and AFV's together. For now I'll put him in the 'unknown' list. Thanks for the additions!

What was Karl Kloskowski of the "Das Reich" Panzer Division total kills while commanding a panzer. He was a holder of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves.

Unlike the Luftwaffe fighter total kills in the air,a lot of Panzer commander aces kills were incomplete or not final scores. We don't even know the final complete score of Michael Wittmann for sure. Hans Strippel's kills was 77 up to the middle of 1944. Strippel fought in the war front until the very end of WWII for Germany. His final complete score is not known. Maybe his final score was over 100. Did Hugo Primozic fought in 1944 and 1945 and adding more kills to his 68 kills which was reached by the middle of 1943?

The poster-boy chosen to promote the Waffen SS who's every move was recorded to validate the Uber-SS myth?
He came from nowhere in the summer of 1943 and was dead in the summer of 1944. He kill-claims are enumerated in detail in Agte and I very much doubt if any 'doubtful' claims were omitted.
For certain his Normandy kill-total is at least twice reality. It is true his Stug career is largely undocumented but if he was that prolific it would not have been overlooked would it?

Lt. Johannes Kochanowski had 55 kills over Soviet tanks by the late months of 1942. The question is did he continue to fight and destroy Soviet tanks on the Eastern Front in 1943 till May of 1945? If he had,his kill score could have doubled and made over the 100 tank kill mark.

I'm attaching an article from the Sorauer Tageblatt (dated 13.05.1944) that describes why Oberfeldwebel Hans Fendesack received the Ehrenblattspange. I'll write up an English translation if requested. It appears to describe two separate actions that saw Fendesack claim 18+ and 24 tanks, respectively. I find it hard to believe that he would not instead receive the Knight's Cross after claiming 40+ tanks destroyed, so maybe I'm not understanding the German 100%? If there's any German speakers that might be able to provide clarification then any comments would be most welcome.

Hans Fendesack certainly deserved to have the Knight's Cross.

The name Arno Giesen is a nom de guerre. The man's real name was Arnold Friesen. Information is from another topic of this forum.

"Giesen" was a fraud recently outed by his son.

Nice to know about Giesen. About the article from the Sorauer Tageblatt, it's not clear if Fendesack alone destroyed 18 tanks, I don't think so, they are mentioning him as platooncommander with his last tanks. And also by that late time in the war it was much more difficult to earn a Knights Cross. alcius, do you have a source for 103 enemy tanks for Fendesack?

Thanks for the article. It looks indeed like the case of Knispel, he should have received the Knights Cross if!! he was that whole period a panzer commander, what I don't know. You never know what was going on. These are exceptional cases but I'll put him in the list for now.

They are mentioning also a Feldwebel Schimock with over 70 panzerkills, does anyone know his first name and which awards he had?
