This is one of two Jagdtigers abandoned at Neustadt, near Wied, in Germany. It was built in October 1944 and has chassis number 305020. It had the tactical number “331” and carried an ‘ambush’ camouflage scheme. It has an anti-aircraft mount for an MG 42 on the engine deck. (Source: L. Archer). It is believed to have belonged to 1 Company, schwere Panzerjäger Abteilung 512, although some sources state it came from sPzJgAbt 653. The other one had a faulty cooling system and could not be made mobile. This one may have been lost through lack of fuel; neither was disabled by its crew. This Jagdtiger had taken a number of hits but was otherwise in good condition. It has at least two ricochet marks on the glacis plate and it may have been one of these projectiles that has gouged a piece out of the gun mantlet. It was in this condition when it was captured by US troops. It was refuelled, and later transported to America for evaluation.
