Really cool Chris! Yeah...it looked really good for sitting under all that mud for so many years. Those Germans really knew how to build a tank though. Far superior than any of the allies...from what I've heard. We just had so many more I guess. Thanks for posting I was quite amazed...

Looks like a Panzer IIIj with a L60, 50mm gun (early to mid-war, especially of it is recovered in Russia). Germans had excellent tanks. However, they were technologically more difficult to repair. The Russians, in contrast, could slide out a transmission from one mass produced T-34 and throw it right into the T-34 sitting right beside it. Those Russian farmers in the video are fearless. I guess they have no worries about left over ordnance or anything

Incredible preservation on his one. I've seen cars more poorly preserved sitting in a shed.

Very interesting facts Joe...So the Russians could change a transmission with ease right in the field huh? Great advantage I'm sure. Kind of surprising though considering the highly innovative and superior designs the Germans had at the time.

And yes, incredible preservation no doubt...Did you all notice how (once they got it upright and cleaned it off a bit) the tracks/wheels started rotating shortly after from dragging it? I can't believe they weren't rusted solid. I guess that environment made this possible...very cold/being buried in mud?

Wow, I remember watching that program on the History Channel back when they actually had good programming! Makes you wonder if it would have been cheaper to have Lockeed Martin just build a new plane! Smile
