Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Panther command tank was built in February 1944 by MAN at Nürnberg and it retains the characteristic extra star and rod aerials. It is based on an Ausf A and has the chassis number 210767. Nothing is known of its initial deployment or parent unit. In 1946 it was sold by France to Sweden. It was presented as a gift by the Royal Swedish Defence Ministry to Panzer Lehr Battalion 93 on 17 October 1961. It has been at Kampftruppenschule 2 since 1975.
It has mountings for two headlamps. These may be of Swedish origin, as there are weld scars around the mounts, and at one point there were guards fitted around the headlamps (source: L. Archer).
It was restored to running order in the KTS 2 workshops at Munster between 15 January 1980 and 15 September 1981. This was done with the assistance of the companies Motoren und Turbinen-Union (MTU), Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen and Rheinmetall, and the Armour Museum at Saumur, France. It is now in running order and has taken part in public displays. It carries the turret number “II01”, indicative of a 2nd Battalion headquarters tank.
