    The Wessex Wyverns were involved in Operation Bluecoat as part of XXX Corps , the 2 Jagdpanthers had been blown up by their own crews following them being disabled due to destruction of their tracks and suspension !!
    Excellent research Paul! I noticed the only real damage to be seen was a possible small shell strike on one of the left hand side road wheels and some small arms damage on a wheel behind that, so the self destruction of this new design on the battlefield makes sense. I wonder if this occured after the Bergepanzer was knocked out in a doomed recovery mission?
