Used in Kursk!
The Elephant was not used at Kursk. Although the same vehicles did see service as the Ferdinand there.

There are numerous minor improvements made to the vehicles during the rebuilds, and the handful of Elephants were more useful than the original Ferdinands, even if only available in even more limited numbers.

Total production was around 90 Ferdinands, and only those that survived Kursk were rebuilt into the later Elephant.
