This prototype of a (Sf) auf Geschutzwagen demountable weapons carrier was seen outside at the Duxford Military Vehicle show in 2003; it was believed to be due to be sent elsewhere for restoration (source: J. Harris). It features on the Wheatcroft Collection website so that must have been where it went for restoration; its current status is unknown.
