This Sexton is little more than a rusted wreck; it is missing both tracks (at one point they were sitting on top of the hull), most of its suspension and most external parts.
In August 2003 it was moved by a Leopard recovery vehicle from the impact area of the Hammelburg range. It was recovered along with “Target 25”, a well-known M4A3 Sherman that possibly belonged to Task Force Baum, and the wreck of an M2 half-track. The wrecks are placed now at the former Reussenberg Farm. (Source:
