This is an early production Ausf G; it was originally manufactured in October 1942 and is fitted with a KwK 40 L/43 that was also produced in 1942. It was originally part of 23 Panzer Division and was knocked out in January 1943. At about that time 23 PzDiv was part of LVII Korps, Armee Hollidt, Armeegrupp Don and was operating in the general areas of Mius and the Don. This tank was later repaired and used as a training vehicle until 1945. It was restored to running order in 2001, and later its main armament was returned to the correct position. It was used in the making of several movies from 1945 until 2008, the most recent shooting taking place from the autumn of 2007 to the summer of 2008. During this time it was repainted twice with poor quality paint. It also received internal and external damage, and was left in a poor, dirty condition. From the autumn of 2008 to the end of 2009 the tank was repaired by Kubinka volunteers and some missing interior and exterior parts were fabricated and installed. From January 2010 it was cleaned up and the old layers of paint were removed, then it was repainted in the markings and camouflage scheme of an Ausf G of 201 Panzer Regiment, 23 Panzer Division, on the Mius front in July-August 1943. During the repainting its Russian headlamp was removed but will be reinstalled so the tank can be driven in the dark. It has been returned to display in the museum. (Source: Taranov, RTY).
