I got to see the Elefant (and all the other Tigers, etc) at Bovington Tank Museum today. The last day before it's shipped back to the US. I posted a photo report over at my blog:

TO bad it going back into storage in the US. The Aberdeen collection is still without a Museum.

U.S. Army Ordnance Training and Heritage Center (Formerly known as the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum)

In 2005 a Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) law was passed by Congress. One of BRAC's requirements was the relocation of the U.S. Army Ordnance Center and School headquarters, the Ordnance Mechanical Maintenance School, and the Ordnance Museum to Fort Lee by the end 2011.[1] The transfer of artifacts from Aberdeen to Fort Lee began in August 2009.

As of September 2015, the collection is under cover and not available for viewing, but the Fort Lee outdoor displays can be viewed.
