1944/45 Fallschirm-Panzerkorps Hermann Göring
Ordered raised on 24.09.1944. It basically was the Fallschirm Pz Div Hermann Göring {abbreviated HG}, which, having grown over large and anyway getting somewhat unwieldy, was split into a Panzer Division (Fallschirm-Panzer-Division 1 HG) and a Panzer Grenadier Division (Fallschirm-Panzergrenadier-Division 2 HG), with some units added, but organized only partially under the PzK (nA) organization. As usual with the Luftwaffe, there were differences. The Flak Regiment HG was used in place of an artillery regiment, and a Panzerjäger-Abteilung was raised. On the other hand, the FschPzK HG did not have a Korps-Fusilier-Rgt, (instead it had a motorized Korps-Sturm-Bataillon, while each division had a Fallschirm-Panzer-Fusilier-Bataillon), a heavy Panzer battalion, or a replacement regiment (although battalions were kept at divisional level). In addition, both divisions retained their two Panzergrenadier regiments. It was even planned to raise III. Battalions for the Panzergrenadier regiments of the PzG Div 2 HG.
