Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Ausf G was manufactured in December 1944. The details of its wartime history and parent unit are not known, however it is known that it was captured in 1945 by US troops and transported to Aberdeen Proving Ground in the USA. It went subsequently to Fort Knox in Kentucky and was donated in September 1979 to Kampftruppenschule 2 by the Patton Armour Museum at Fort Knox. It was restored by Panzer Werkstatt (Armour Workshop) No. 1 between 1983 and 1987 and is now in running order. It carries the number “101”.
It is a late-production model with steel return-rollers. It has a Saukopf mantlet with coaxial machine-gun and a cast cupola shield. It is unusual in that its front plate to the right of the gun is made from one piece of 80mm armour.
