This vehicle was on display in the Ordnance Museum at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, USA, for many years. In 1989 it was returned to Germany on a long term loan of 99 years. This was in exchange for it being restored. The two other vehicles involved were a Tiger tank, which also went to the Auto und Technik Museum, and a PzKpfw II tank which went to the Munster Panzermuseum.
