There are several good photos of this Jagdtiger taken at time of capture. I can't find my copies but I'm sure you can find them on line. The main gun mantlet damage IDs it in the photos.

Here is some info on the Jagdtiger;

"It was produced in October, 1944 and was attached to the s.Pz.Jg.Abt 653 and had the vehicle number 331. The vehicle was captured near Neustadt an der Weinstraße, Germany in March 1945. Damage is still visible on the gun mantlet, glacis plate, and lower nose armor."

Just found this;

It is a pity that they left these fully working vehicles on the outside to decay. Here she is from another view.

The rail gun Leopold was at APG but was moved to Fort Lee, VA for restoration work and storage. It may have been moved to Ft Benning, GA or to Ft. Sill, OK? These are photos I took at APG 2009 just before they moved it to FT Lee.

I don't know what happened to the Jaged Tiger but these were also taken 2009 just before it was moved. I assume it is in the process of being partially restored?
