2 Wartime Truck Emergence

Wartime Truck Emergence

Posted on August 20, 2014 by team


It took three days to lift this AMO-2 of the war time from the bottom of the Msta river. Finally the truck showed up from the 4 meters depth to be delivered to the Novgorod citadel for restoration.

There were remains of the driver's body in a padded jacket in the cab of the truck, in the back of the vehicle - a divisional 120mm mortar with shells. The driver could not be identified but it's known he died in winter 1944 during an offensive operation of Soviet troops for the liberation of Novgorod.
