    It was believed to be captured near Colmar after it was hit by multiple bazooka hits on the upper right front armour plating. This caused the side of the upper chassis armoured plate to fracture and the weld joints with the front armour plates to crack. There is also two hits just to the left of the front right track cover on front armour. Some reports say these hits were caused by Sherman tanks shells.

    It was used by the free French army 5th Armoured Division until the end of the war. Many captured and abandoned German vehicles were put into service by the free French army.

    Black-and-white photographs taken after this Jagdpanzer IV/70 (A) tank destroyer was captured shows that it had a camouflage paint job that appears to consist of lighter fist sized blotches painted on a darker background. On the photograph you cannot tell if the background colour was Brown or olive green.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I was in the Army in Colmar in the 70's, in this time, i don't know this story, the same for Audie Murphy. He fought at 5 kms from my barrack.
