Re: WWII Tank recovered after 52 years
I was watching UK history channel at the weekend and the documentary was about a Panzer tanke they had recovered from a river in Poland. The interesting titbit for me was do you know the week point in a Panzer tank?
A weak final drive - the Panzer had got heavier during development but the intial FD design had not been beefed up =8-0 Who says engineers learn from their mistakes? It was also a very difficult part to replace and took the tank out of commission for a few days
