A tabulation of estimated enemy strength by major units as of 5 August follows: [15-58]
|105th Armored Division (40 tanks)||3,000|
|83rd Motorized Regiment (detachedfrom 105th Armored Division)||1,000|
|766th Independent Infantry Regiment||1,500|
No reliable figures are available for the number of enemy tanks destroyed and for tank troop casualties of the 105th Armored Division by 5 August, but certainly they were high. There were only a few tank replacements during July.
