Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:


This late-production Hummel was used against, and captured by, the Third US Army during World War II. Its gun barrel is damaged near the muzzle.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:


This Hummel was one of two Hummels that came to Fort Knox via Aberdeen Proving Ground; they were part of the original Patton Collection pieces that arrived in 1946 (source: D. Moriarty). The other Hummel is now in the Panzermuseum at Munster, Germany. This example went to Fort Benning in March 2010, and then to Fort Sill early in 2012 (source: P.-O. Buan/AFVNDB).
