Unless the information in the linked document is incorrect, it cant be the same tank

"By November-December, this intense firepower turned the vehicle into a small pile of scrap that would have fitted into “the backseat of a Volkswagen Beetle” and what was left of the hull was scrapped and the turret being sent to the firing range in Kråk to be used as a target practice. "

Or am I reading it wrongly.

Looking at the picture I think it never had Zimmerit.
