The German Cross / Deutsches Kreuz was instituted by Adolf Hitler on 17 November 1941. It was awarded in two divisions. It was awarded in gold for repeated acts of bravery or achievement in combat. The German Cross in gold ranked higher than the Iron Cross First Class but below the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross.

On December 20th, 1939 the Panzer Assault Badge in Silver or the Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber was established. The Panzer Assault Badge in Silver was dedicated to tank crews or tank units. Later there was also a Panzer Assault Badge in Bronze established for members of other units of tank divisions.

The prerequisite for awarding were at least three tank interventions or actions in three different days. There were around 22,000 Panzer Assault Badges in Silver awarded.
