The German Army regarded its Panzer Grenadiers as well qualified for certain defensive tasks, especially the defense of broad sectors, because of their extensive allotment of light, medium, and heavy guns. If the Panzer Grenadiers have reached an objective well behind the opposition's front lines, they were oftentimes instructed to halt an advance made at considerable sacrifice (even though they might be able to continue it) so that troop units which are not motorized can be given time to come forward.
