Default Destroyed PzIV France 1940

Hi. Is it posible to identify the unit of this PzIV.? It was destroyed probably in June 1940 on the Somme front (maybe in the sector of 13 ID according to other doc from this lot). If it was taken around Amiens , it could be 3 or 4 PzDiv .
Regards
Christophe

Could belonged also to the 9 or 10 Pz Div and lost in the South of Amiens ?
(196 Pz IV and III were destroyed during this 19 days battle)

Oh, yep, this last pic is much clearer. For sure not a bear.

Thanks for such a fascinating thread.

Does anyone know what go could have caused this damage? Perhaps a hit from a Char B1?
