Fascinating. So in Tunisia, the British did ballistics tests on a total of two Tigers: Tank #231, and tank #241.
In another incident, they also cut out an armor plate from the hulk of another Tiger, and fired a couple of shots at that as well.
They seemed to take these test results more seriously than the Americans, given their push to re-equip themselves with the 17 pounder gun.

As I read it this Tiger was in the front-line and could not be towed to the rear. After a brief and hurried technical examination it was completely demolished to prevent any possible German recovery.
