Introduction to Waffen-SS Panzer Crew Uniforms

Although the Army was the first to have armored units and developed an armored uniform, the Waffen-SS was created and organized to be highly-mobilized units. The Army developed a two-piece black wool uniform to hide the oil and grease associated with tank operations. When the Waffen-SS brought their units up to include tanks and other armor, they essentially copied the Army's black panzer and gray-green assault gun uniforms, however, they made a few minor alterations. The Jagdpanzer and assault gun uniforms were identical in style but different in color.
