Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

This tank destroyer was recovered from Iraq, and is believed to have previously been captured by Iraq from Iranian forces. It is mounted on a low, flat concrete plinth next to a line of flag poles. It appears to be fitted with a non-standard gun and muzzle brake, indicating it was probably up-gunned by its original owners.
