  1. I think i saw these photos a long time ago.. they also had images of the engine compartment, which was also in perfect shape.

  2. I believe that’s a T-34, one of history’s greatest tanks, and well worth rescuing from that lake. It kicked ass at the Battle of Kursk and played a major part in saving your country.

    • t-34 / 57 produced mainly during 1943; some might mistake it for t-34 / 76 however it has unique shape of the turret : this one was not referred to as Mickey Mouse by germans; its main purpose was a tank hunter : surprisingly its Zis-4 57 m gun was more suitable that its 76.2 m weapon but small projectile could not carry enough punch; this tank gave birth to t-43 & t-44 group but a very small numbers were produced;
