Default German Tank Destroyer Units-Rhein

What were some of the Independent Tank Destroyer units that the Germans used to protect the southern flank of Panzer-Lehr in 1945? Im trying to find out the name of the one my Great Uncle served in( HUGE misunderstanding on my part that it was my Grandfather who was in WWII) All I know for sure is that my Great Uncle served with one of these units to protect Panzer-Lehr's flank before the war ended. Unit consisted of 6 tanks of which 2 were nashorns. I cant find any other info. Unit name MIGHT have been 'Das Reich uber alles' or something like that.

The quote you stated is a German statement that the reich comes before everything. I do not believe that it was a unit name, but that is still a possibility.

There are several forums on the internet which focus on the German units. You could also pose your question over at Missing-Lynx, a modellers website whose members are historians.

As for the Das Reich, 2nd. Waffen SS division, I made this Tiger I, the 812, also known by its alias, "Tiki", chosen by its commander Heinrich Warnick (I guess from TIger KInd):

Most of the sources refer to the Tiger Kind explanation.
