T-34 converted into a ammunition carrier for 3./schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653 in Galicia, Ukraine summer of 1944. These modifications were carried out by the battalion armorer Stabsfeldwebel Anton Brunthaler to meet shortage of ammunition carriers and recovery vehicles. By the end of July '44 , s.PzJg.Abt.653 had lost over 60% of its vehicles (incl. 20+ Elefanten) during the hasty withdrawl.

Stu.Pz.Abt.216 entrained to Amiens for a major training exercise.
Trivia: Sturmpanzer driver's visor came from the VK 45.01. Tiger(P) leftovers (90). This also explains why the flat unreinforced Tiger(P) mantlet was also seen on the Tiger I, until "early" middle production.

Those are from the army archives. Some are public (but nothing like the bundesarchiv)

On the contrary,  the war report from 1939-1940 are all available :
