Flakauswerte units - please help!
I am doing some research on a Luftwaffe Flak Soldbuch and I have come across the unit 'Flakauswertezug 104'.
I do not know much at all about 'auswerte' units. The name would suggest some sort of 'evaluation' role. Does anyone know what exactly these units were responsible for in the field? Was it calculating flak targeting efficiency or something?
There seems to be very little information on the internet and in my books. All I have found is that Fl.Ausw.Zug 104 was active in the southern sector of the Eastern Front during 1944 and early 1945, possibly attached to I./Flak-Rgt 231 (under 15 Flak-Div) at least in Sept. 1944 according to a corresponding ink stamp in the Soldbuch.
Any help concerning the role of the auswerte units would be greatly appreciated
