There were Panzer troops is the Waffen SS, Heer (as some of the chaps above were pictured....those with skulls on each collar, as opposed to the 3rd SS who wore a distinctive skull only on their right collar, and rank on the left) and finally Luftwaffe Pz units.
Just cause it's black doesn't mean SS
My fault. I have thought that you speak that SS tank units are not Waffen SS and it different part of SS. Sorry!!! Probably you are right. They simply (Wehrmacht) tankers (on photos)...
My info about... The official stamp tank units has inscription Waffen SS. Upon this official acknowledgement of an accessory of SS tank units to Waffen SS. My example - Michael Wittmann and Willi Hein. They have SS uniform and tank uniform. I know that in cap of Waffen SS tanker there was the skull and Wehrmacht's tanker had the "circle". And more. Buttonholes (on collar) - runes on the right and sign on the left. Different Epaulets. Signs Waffen SS always embroidered with threads. I did not see metal fleeces and skulls in buttonholes (on collar).
The black "working" uniform at tankers was for battle. The usual uniform of the simple (Wehrmacht) tankers was as at military men of Wehrmacht but with differed epaulets and signs. Tankers of Waffen SS have "working" tank's uniform and SS uniform.
German military have tank units in Waffen SS and in Wehrmacht....
They were the only combat forces in the Euopean theater to were camo... Merrils marauders and some marine recon teams in the pacific wore camo when they were island hopping... and from what I read it was pretty effective.
What about all the Splinter pattern uniforms used by the Wehrmacht? Plus "tan and water" 1943 and 1944 varients? Practically every soldat was issued with a camo zeltbahn. Hermann Goering Division (later Corp) was issued with both the Luftwaffe varient of the splinter pattern and SS smocks.
The Brits airborne units used a camo smock. US Rangers in the initial stages of Overlord used the "duck-hunter" cams until they started taking casualties due to being mistaken for Waffen-SS.
With regards to the Pacific, practically every Marine that stepped on a Pacific island wore the "duck-hunter" cams.
Merrils Marauders didn't use an official pattern uniform, it was fatigues dyed jungle green and black.
Even units of the New Zealand army came up with their own design of uniform, jungle fatigues sprayed with dye (see below) for their Pacific campaigns.
