SS-Panzerkorps) in at the end of that year. It was reformed after this and in January 1945 it was used to form a schwere SS-Werfer-Batterie for 32. SS-Freiwilligen-Grenadier-Division 30 Januar. This battery was disbanded when it had used up its ammunition supply.
In January 1945 some elemets were known as SS-Werfergruppe Kreischer and in February they were used to form SS-Werfer-Abteilung 506 (32. SS-Freiwilligen-Grenadier-Division 30 Januar).
The remaining elements of the unit was used in ad-hoc infantry formations near the end of the war.
