Location History:
(see map)

1: Altmärkische Kettenfabrik (Alkett) GmbH, Berlin-Spandau, Germany (Primary manufacturer)
2: Panzermuseum, Thun, Bern, Switzerland (Current location)
3: Schweizerische Militärmuseum, Full, Zurzach, Aargau, Switzerland (Restoration 2009)
4: Panzermuseum, Thun, Bern, Switzerland (Current location)


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).
