Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:


New Entry. The wreck of this tank was found on the Finnish/Russian border where it had lain since its destruction as a result of combat or self-destruction on abandonment by the crew. An explosion in its ammunition storage area had ripped through the interior of the tank, and when the tank was discovered its condition was described as ‘distressed’. It belongs to the Royal Jordanian Tank Museum, which has funded its restoration back into full running order. It has a hull date stamp of 1944. (Source: Bovington Museum News).
It was rescued by Stephen Lamonby who runs Plus Film Ltd, which provides authentic military vehicles for film companies. “It was discovered up near the Estonian-Russian border in very dense forest,” he said. “Getting it out was quite a problem. We had to cut down lots of trees.” (Source: WarAndPeaceShow).
When recovered from an army range it was in two pieces, split wide open, and took four years to restore. It was restored at A+S in Norfolk and is fitted with an FV432 engine (K60 power pack) and gearbox. (Source: HMVF). It took part in the Tankfest and War and Peace shows in June and July 2011 respectively.
The tank was purchased for £500k and was shipped to the Royal Jordan Tank Museum by Skill Express Freight, a member of the IFLN Network. It was shipped from Southampton in early November 2011 on board RoRo (roll on, roll off) vessel TARIFA on a standard export license. Operated by NMT Lines the vessel was discharged in the Port of Aqaba less than two weeks later. From entry into the Suez Canal the ship usually takes three days to get to Aqaba. To avoid dents and or scratches to the paintwork, special care had to be given to the tank in transit. The tank arrived at the port of embarkation on an ordinary low bed trailer and was driven onto the vessel under its own power. Customs clearance was carried out directly by the client King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) acting on behalf of the consignee, the Royal Jordan Tank Museum. (Source: IFLN).
