Here a fast explanation. Grenzer is also right: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenzer

Grenze is german for border and since they speak in austria just another dialect it'll be most probably right. Wink

Agree on that, though most of slav units were simply refered by nationality, actualy granzer was only official name, not used widely.
