This Flakpanzer is displayed in a tableau with the museum’s Flakpanzer. It is displayed as a largely complete wreck, and appears to be in fairly good condition. Its label states “This particular vehicle, which belonged a prior to the 12th SS ‘Hitlerjugend’ Panzerdivision, was destroyed on 20th or 21st August 1944 near Saint-Lambert-sur-Dives. It was retrieved in Trun from a scrap-yard at the beginning of the 1980s, and was renovated by the museum team”.
This Flakpanzer was one of four discovered in the Trun scrapyard (q.v.). At least one of the others went to the Saumur Armour Museum (q.v.), and another one went to the Musée Automobiles de Normandie at Clères (q.v.). They were all in a very poor rusted condition when they were discovered.
