Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Sturmtiger was captured during the war and was later transferred to Aberdeen Proving Ground, USA. After the war it was put on display in the Ordnance Museum at APG in an ambush camouflage system. It was in very good condition, and had straight-pattern Zimmerit and the rare circular muzzle counterweight. However, it is a standard early model vehicle in other respects, such as nose armour and straight edge towing lugs. It has since been returned to Germany and is now on display at Koblenz. Also, it has marks on the engine deck that may indicate it was converted from an early Tiger that originally had Feifel equipment (source: L. Archer).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This Sturmtiger is currently on display at the Deutsches Panzermuseum at Munster; it is on loan from the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung in Koblenz (source: Wikipedia).
