Another info here :

Schließlich war die 9. Kompanie unter Oberleutnant Knieschenach ihrer Aufstellung in Düren Mitte September 1941 in den Raum Wolokolamsk transportiert worden. Dort wurde sie als Halbkompanie unter Leutnant Ramstetter der 2. SS-Panzergrenadierdivision »Das Reich« zugeteilt.

Three times in mimoirs I had to read similar information, the first case of an attempt by Russians in chenels to enter the bridge over the Southern Bug River in the Pervomaisk region, their overcoats were killed by machine guns, the attempt to capture the bridge was repulsed, the second case near Odessa was a line of Russian soldiers at the position of 412 coastal artillery but the formation itself was not typical for the battles in that region and the Branderbuzhs were scattered with pre-emptive fire , Well, the third case is a report from a German officer about combat use to capture a bridge across the Dniester River in Mogilev Podolsk by the Branderburzhchev company, they cut the wires from the charges, but the tank standing on the side of the bank with its fire, even hitting the charging boxes, damaged the bridge so that the operation was partially successful.So such cases were not isolated, it was such a German tactic in 1941.
