Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Hetzer was recovered from a river in Poland in 1990/91. It is marked with the number 321154/167/17 and has been fitted with a muzzle-brake at some point. It is an early production model and its right hand idler has 12 holes. Its rear left hand side has been destroyed by a mine. (Source: R. Fleming).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This Hetzer is missing its left-hand track and much of its rear left superstructure. Its label reads: “One Hetzer was captured on 2nd August 1944 by Warsaw Uprising insurgent fighters of the ‘Kiliński’ Battalion, Home Army, who co-operated with the Protecting Unit of the Military Printing House (insurgent printing plant). The captured Hetzer was initially incorporated into the barricade in Szpitalna Street. Nevertheless, it was repaired later and under the name of “Chwat” it guarded the court of the Main Post Office. However, the vehicle on display, which probably belonged to the German 73rd Infantry Division, was blown up by its crew on 17th January 1945 near Blonie during the Nazi retreat.”
