    One guy who has the repainted T 34/76 captured by the germans and the whole kollection of guns, parts of airplanes etc... took it to his museum. Recently after the founding of a gun he was on that place with the special device trying to find more parts from the IS-2, but no results, only gun.

    Hello Paul, glad to see you. I don't know actually, there's one problem that on the original turret is german paint with the balken croitz and russian inscription " For the Soviet Estonia "under. So that he don't want to put the turret on the tank. It is becouse he want to use it for re-enect. But recently he bought another turret (fron Saaremaa island) with originall soviet paint. He want to use it for tank, and original turret to use only for exgibition.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
