Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This infobox is designed to display the basic data and emblems of German military units and particularly to aid translation of the numerous German Wikipedia articles which use the infobox from which this is derived.

It will save man-years of effort in laboriously converting and translating every infobox separately.

Please note that the documentation and some parameters are still being translated.
