What are panzer corps?

Panzer Corps

A panzer corps (German: Panzerkorps) was a military formation type in the German Wehrmacht during World War II. The name was introduced in 1941, when the motorised corps (Armeekorps (mot) or AK(mot)) were renamed to panzer corps. Panzer corps were created throughout the war, and existed in all service arms of the Wehrmacht except the Navy. Those renamed from ordinary motorised corps retained their numbering.
