OOB/KSTN questions on Inf.Btl.(mot.) 1941

Post by Dimitrii » 02 Jul 2022 18:27

Hello everbody,

I have a few questions:

1) for the Stab of a German Inf.Btl. (mot.) I have found the KSTN on dr. Niehorster's website:
http://www.niehorster.org/011_germany/4 ... 11-41.html
I assume this was the norm for German mot. Inf.Btl. in Russia 1941/1942?

My question here is: how many officers, NCO's and men would this KSTN have? I cannot seem to find thel exact number?


2) The norm for a mot. Inf. Btl. 1941 would be 4 companies, how many examples are there of a Btl.(mot.) with 5 companies?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Gerhard,

Yes, certainly, but alas could not find the answers to my questions, so I came here...

Hi Dimitrii,

You have to look under "Kriegsstärkenachweise" and then for "Infanterie 100-299".

Then you will find "115c Stab eines Infanteriebataillons c (mot)".
At the bottom this overview

Hope that helps

That is great, many thanks dear Gerhard! Cannot believe that I overlooked it...

If I see correctly, there is no such thing as an OOB for a German Inf.Btl. (mot.) but for the Stab and Schützenkompanien only?

On the same page where you found "115c Stab eines Infanteriebataillons c (mot)"
you can also see "138c Schützenkompanie c (mot) einer Inf.Div.(mot)"

A "Infanteriebataillons" has 3 of KStN 138c.

Furthermore there is a No. 4 - the "161c Maschinengewehrkompanie c (mot) einer Inf.Div.(mot)"

Good luck, Gerhard

Hello,

I have a another question: what would the 4 Beamten in the Stab of a Btl. do? One of them would be the Zahlmeister?
