This Ausf J is unusual in having smoke grenade dischargers fitted on its turret as though it were an Ausf M. The engine decking is not original and it is missing part of its left-hand suspension. Its main armament is fake and probably indicates that it was missing or severely damaged when the vehicle was captured.
