This Lynx served with 1 Kompanie, Panzer Aufklarung Abteilung of 9th Panzer Division, which had 26 Luchs on 1 July 1944. They were used in Normandy for a short time but then withdrew to Aachen and the Ruhr. This example was probably captured at Falaise or elsewhere in Normandy. It was put on the museum books in 1951.
