Ever wondered what all those weird squares and lines and squiggly bits painted on German vehicles mean? Wonder no longer:

This is a chart showing every unit and weapon type likely to be encountered. With typical Teutonic thoroughness it shows armament, unit size, transport status, and all sorts of things in a comprehensive and data-rich format. It'll let you read the German divisional tables of organization and equipment on the same site, to see how each unit was armed. May be a little arcane, but I think it's fascinating.

From Dr. Niehorster's excellent OOB site:
