    Interesting, I wasn't aware that the NSKK ever fiddled with tanks.
    They sure did. Training motor vehicle drivers (not just of tanks) for the armed forces was an important wartime mission of the NSKK.

    I suppose it makes sense, I would just think that the tanks were needed at the front ASAP. Then again they didn't have the fancy computer simulations that tankers in training use today.

    Right, but also note that the tanks (except for those in the column in the foreground) are special training versions that have just the lower chassis, but no upper hulls, turrets etc. Those could only be used for "driver's ed" purposes anyway.

    The NSKK trained over 187,000 drivers and mechanics over the period 1933-45 for all types of vehicles as Andreas has already noted. The time spent on each applicant to learn was listed as around 80 hours for driving and 105 hours on mechanics.
