TANK DESTROYER BATTALION, TOWED

The towed battalion is similar to the self-propelled Blattalion except that it is equipped with towed guns and has no reconnaissance company. Two reconnaissance platoons are included in the headquarters company.

Towed tank destroyer units have less armor protection and battlefield mobility than self-propelled units, but are more easily concealed. Towed guns are always dug in when time permits.
Towed guns are more suitable for advanced positions than self-propelled guns, since they are smaller and more easily concealed. If tank destroyers are committed to advanced firing positions, it may be impracticable to maneuver them further thereafter.

Differences in tactical employment.
Reconnaissance is executed by patrols from the reconnaissance company in self-propelled battalions, in towed battalions, by two reconnaissance platoons
Towed units should be covered by smoke or fire of other guns in occupying a position hastily.
The towed company uses fire only to drive the enemy out of the assigned area.
If a company is the advance guard for the battalion, since towed units are not suitable for maneuver against fire, the gun company of the advance guard quickly occupies firing positions across the route of the enemy's advance when resistance is met; its mission is to stop a weak attack, or in the case of a strong attack, to gain time for the deployment of, and movement to positions, by the rest of the battalion..
Crews may have difficulty in withdrawing towed guns from outpost positions during daylight. Except when a night withdrawal is planned, towed units therefore should be used to augment outpost troops only when the damage they can do to the enemy will more than compensate for their loss.
