Zielschütze

Post by ClintHardware » 25 Jul 2020 21:44

Hi All

I came across a reference to the Richtschütze (Gunner) of a panzer crew being referred to as a Zielschütze (Marksman?). Has anyone seen this before and was it used interchangeably with Richtschütze in terms of that crew position? Was it perhaps panzer crew slang or a nickname?

Thanks if you can help.
