This vehicle was captured in Libya during World War II and was on display in the Ordnance Museum at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, USA, for many years. In 1989 it was returned to West Germany on long term loan (99 years) in exchange for it being restored. The two other vehicles involved were a Tiger tank and Marder II tank destroyer, both of which went to the Auto und Technik Museum at Sinsheim. It is now in running order and has taken part in public displays.
