Tropical Panzer Uniforms

Uniforms worn by the panzer forces under Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps initially wore their black panzer uniforms, but because of the desert heat these were totally impractical and were exchanged for the tropical uniforms. The panzer forces didn't have a unique panzer uniform styled the same way as their black panzer uniforms. They wore the same four-pocket jacket with long or short trousers as the rest of the army. About the only difference was on their lapels they pinned on the Totenkopf stamped metal device and they wore the pink branch color on their tropical (khaki or olive-green) shoulder straps, officers wearing their standard Continental shoulder boards.
