Originally formed 8.05.43 in the Poitiers area (Führerbefehl 6.01.43). The Panzer-Abteilung and the Werfer-Abteilung were not to be formed until 4.01.44.

Reformed 6.30.44 from the new VII.SS-Panzer-Korps and its Korpstruppen. Intended for OB West, but moved to Warsaw in 8.44. Spent the rest of the War on the Eastern Front.
