When the HYDRA commander Johann Schmidt invaded Tønsberg, Norway in 1942, one of these tanks was part of his invasion force. After he found the Tesseract, Schmidt ordered his men to destroy the village, and the tank was used in that monstrous task.
- In a deleted scene from Captain America: The First Avenger, the tank fires at regular German troops before it captures the future Howling Commandos.
- The tank appears in one of the trailers for the video game Captain America: Super Soldier but not in the game itself.
- The tank is partially based on the Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte.
