Hi all,
I'm searching for pictures/informations about this tank.
I know about a picture included in the book "Combat History of the 654th S.Pz.Abt." and also found this drawing:



The pic description said "Grafenwohr Oct. '44"
Could anyone please provide some more information about it? Was it an early, mid or late? Did it have zimmerit? Anything else?
Many thanks in advance,
Gab

Hi Gabriele.

That is not the drawing from the 654 book !

JP 202, (chassis number: 300072) was lost on 1 Dec 44, 1.5km northwest of Pont du Bouc (Hardt woods) east of Mulhouse (France) , gun commander was OFw Brockhoff. No zimmerit,2 piece barrel, balkenkreuz on its front slope, the number "202" before the balkenkreuz on the left side, usual 654 mods, a jerry can an the left side.

The drawing is fiction, the b/w photo on page 501:

It seems an early JP with a less regular camo pattern than the drawing.
Thanks again,
Gab
