Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This is a late-production Ausf G fitted with a box mantlet with coaxial machine-gun. It is fitted with steel return rollers. It appears, however, to be armed with a 75mm StuK 40 L/43.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

[No entry]

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Switzerland publication:

This is a late-production Ausf G. It spent most of 2009 in the Full museum (q.v.), where it was cosmetically restored. Its interior, including engine and gearbox, were beyond repair, most likely sabotaged by the vehicle’s crew. (Source: M. Foti).
