Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This is one of the Jagdtigers that were built with Porsche suspension and is fitted with the same 18-tooth sprockets as used on the Porsche turret Tiger II. One of its suspension bogies broke off during testing. It was captured at Haustenbeck, Sennelager, in Germany, at the same time as the Bovington Porsche King Tiger tank. It was brought to Britain for evaluation in 1946. An early model Tiger (used for fording trials), an E-100 heavy tank and a Grille self-propelled gun were also brought back for evaluation, but these are believed to have been scrapped during the 1950’s. It has the chassis number 305004 and was built in August 1944; it has special tracks, type Gg24/800/8300, that were developed for use with the Porsche suspension (source: L. Archer).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This Jagdtiger was not issued to troops but used in trials at Sennelager, Germany. It was put on the museum books in 1952. Parts of the hull are covered in Zimmerit. It is displayed with its rear fighting compartment hatches open.

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This Jagdtiger was one of a small number of examples that were built with Porsche suspension. This had eight roadwheels each side compared to the nine of the usual Henschel suspension.
