Kriegsstärkenachweisung (K.St.N)
KStN - are the German documents that showed the theoretical composition of a unit, they included information about manpower, weapons and vehicles.
Joe Davis has graciously provided the KStN files below so that they could be made available for all to download. The K.St.N. volumes listed below can be found in NARA Publication T78 (Records of Headquarters of the German Army High Command: OKH) rolls 391 to 397. These will be posted as a single PDF file per document group. These files will represent all the data in the seven microfilm rolls indicated above. My intent is to post files from one roll per month until they are all posted, the posting month is indicated in the file size column.

Individual K.St.N. that are part of volume 8 and 8a, an index of which can be found here, are available for download and listed below under KStN Downloads.

KStN can also be seen at Christoph Awender's website WW2 Day by Day, once at his site select KStN on the left for the KStN section. These are reproduced in a great graphical representation and are well worth a visit.
