Historical reference.

Combat troops SS-Verfügungstruppe (SS-VT or V-Truppe) was formed for the Nazi Party (NSDAP) in 1934. SS-VT combat units under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler was neither a part of the Ordnungspolizei (regular police) nor the Wehrmacht, but military-trained men at the disposal of the Führer or at the disposal of the army at the time of war.  In July 1940 the SS-VT was renamed the Waffen-SS.

In 1939 these military formations consisted of several subgroups. One of which was the Inspectorate of Verfügungstruppe (SS-VT) under Paul Hausser, included military regiments «Deutschland», «Germania» and «Der Führer»

In December 1940 the Germania Regiment was removed from the Verfügungs-Division. The regiment was used to form a new SS Division Germania. Then Germania was renamed «Wiking».  The Verfügungs-Division was also renamed «Reich», then «Das Reich» in 1942. 

The regiment «Reinhard Heydrich» was formed in Prague as SS-Totenkopf-Standarte 6, but moved to southern Norway in April 1940, and in February 1941 transformed into the SS Infanterie Regiment 6 Mot. (Motorized). At the same time, the skull patches on the collar were replaced with SS runes. The regiment was renamed SS Gebirgsjäger Rgt. 11 "Reinhard Heydrich" in October 1943 in honor of SS-Obergruppenführer R. Heydrich. Сuff title was issued in February 1944.
