Citadel - German Preparations

Famously, the Battle for the Kursk Salient, known to the Germans as Operation Citadel, was postponed again and again due to production short comings. I am frantically doing the same thing but for both sides. Here are the Germans for starters...
Late Pz III's ready
 Wespe 105mm SPG's...
 Hummel 150mm SPG's...
 Pz IVH Bn...
 Two Panther Bn's

 ready...
 Recce...
 Transport, both early...
...and later types, ready
 Tiger I coy ready
 STUG III's ready
 Brand spanking new Ferdinand's ready
 Towed ATG's...
 ...and, of course, infantry...
 marching in orderly columns...
 with assault pioneers, are ready
 Hanomags. Some ready...
 Some nearly finished...
 ...some half finished...
and some still om the production line.

The clock is ticking. Lucy is talking to STAVKA.

Next: Russian preparations.
