Here is the story of the tank and pictures click here
Look at all the trees that they damaged in the process, it is an outrage. Someone needs to organize a protest! And all the pollution caused by a big diesel engine without emission controls running for hours. Surely Estonias political system now includes a green party that can head up that effort. :)

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?





No?






Guess?







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

That show is a few months old, at least. It ran a while ago and after that they had a couple shows about the people that restore the old tanks.
