This German Army black Panzer Wrap over tunic was first issued to Panzer (tank) crews and was later worn by various personnel within the Armoured units.
The black colour was chosen to hide any oil stains etc from working inside the confines of a tank, it was initially intended top be worn as a service uniform but because of it looks it was soon worn for all use including dress.
The panzer tunic is often referred to as the "Wrap over" due to the way front fastened with its double breasted design.
Before 1943 the edge of the collars would have pink piping sewn all along the edge of the collar, in 1943 this practice was stopped and all colours where left plain with no extra pink piping sewn onto them. These Panzer Wrap overs we have for sale are made in the 1943 pattern with no extra pink piping on the collar.
In WW2 the Heer (Army) and the Waffen SS both wore black wrap over tunics but they had slightly design differences, this model is the correct version worn by the Heer.
Some of the differences between the Army Wrap over and the SS Wrap over include:
There are many replica Panzer Wrap over tunics for sale some and some not so good. Some do not fit correctly, some are made from poor fabrics and feel like felt rather than wool and some do not have all the features or the correct pattern design.
These Panzer wrap overs by Richard Underwood Militaria are one of the best on the market, they are made from quality wool, they have a good smart fit and are fully featured even down to the correct quality insignia.
The Richard Underwood Militaria Heer Panzer Wrap over has the following features:
The only rank worn on the Panzer Wrap over tunic would be the sleeve patches and shoulder boards no silver tresse (braid) was sewn onto the collars like on the standard 4 pocket tunics.
Price is for 1 x Army Panzer Wrap over tunic with insignia already sewn on so it is ready to wear.
We also have for the sale the correct matching Army black trousers, see below under the related items.
