History

After the Kursk offensive, the sPzAbt 505 was moved to the Smolensk area. During the fall of 1944, the sPzAbt 505 was equipped with new cast cupolas, zimmerit, and the new steel-rimmed wheels developed for the Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf.B. The 505th was ordered out of the Eastern Front on 7 July 1944 to rest and refit at the troop grounds at Ohrduf. By early September, 1944, the sPzAbt 505 had been equipped with new Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf.B. Additionally, the sPzAbt 505 was used with 24th and 25th Panzer Divisions against the Narev bridgeheads in the 1944 Russian offensive into East Prussia. The battalion fought in East Prussia until the end of the conflict.

The sPzAbt.505 had one of the most spectacular markings: a knight on a charger.
