At the assembly plants the tanks were completed by civilian craftsmen. The tanks were fitted out with gun and machineguns but without ammunition, radio equipment and tools. After the required test run and acceptance by the Abnahmekommission (acceptance committee)  the tanks were handed over to the Heeres-Zeugämter (army material agency). The Heeres-Zeugämter equipped the tanks completely with secondary armament, ammunition, tools, e.g, adjusted the weapons and made them “field ready”. According to a proposal by the Gen.Insp.d.Pz.Truppen to the leadership the tanks were distributed. The AFV were sent to the Panzer-Divisionen by the Heeres-Zeugämtern escorted by  personal from the homeland army with railway transport. After the handing over the escort returned home to their units. For the execution of the supply the Gen.Insp.d.Pz.Tr. used the service of the In 6.

Heeres-Zeugämter responsible for equipping the Panther:

  • H.Z.A. Altengrabow
  • H.Z.A. Grafenwöhr
  • H.Z.A. Sennelager

 

At M.N.H another 9 Panther and 12 Jagdpanther were completed with remnant parts by the British REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engeneers) after the war²
