  • Is "Pzg." the correct abbreviation?

The correcht abbreviation is PzGren

Verify/extend the list of divisions

Mark them somehow on the Heer Order of Battle page, and link to it.

Add mention of a few of the more famous divisions and the FG brigade.

It's NOT aromored grenadier - this would imply, that the person itself is armored. This is not the case. The word Panzer in Panzergrenadier describes the target. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:52, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Plural use in English[edit]

Whenever you see the term "Panzergrenadier" used in articles, it's plural is always "Panzergrenadiers". I was wondering if anyone feels that the original plural "Panzergrenadiere" should be used, or if the word is so far integerated into English that English grammar applies here?

The same argument could be applied to the Fallschirmjägere. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 01:22, 29 December 2006 (UTC).

The plural of Fallschirmjäger is Fallschirmjäger. Words ending on -er in German have the same spelling in plural and singular. As for Panzergrenadiere, in my opinion the only valid option. The word isn't integrated into English in any way - you don't see the US Army calling its Mechanized Infantry Panzergrenadiers, do you?

I have found it sensible to amend the picture subtitles to the correct German plural "Panzergrenadiere", as well as to remove the perfectly inappropriate geographical subsumation of "Aachen" to the country designation of "The Netherlands" - the city of Aachen is not and has never been a part of the Netherlands.

This article is very WWII focussed. logically it should also cover post WWII up to modern times. 08:23, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Another example of the obsession of Anglo-Saxons with everything connected to the Nazis. No wonder they are behaving like Nazis in Iraq and Afghanistan. (talk) 16:57, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Austria and Switzerland[edit]

Please add information about the development/current situation in these countries. De728631 21:09, 24 July 2007 (UTC)


I can not find any source backing the claim that the term Panzergrenadier is used in the Chilean Army. I know the Chilean Army had strong historical Prussian and German influence, but the use of this term in a Spanish speaking army seems odd. Best regards, Hansi.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
