    Hi Guys &Gals
    Came across article about a Russian T34/76A tank with German markings, recovered with 116 shells still on board from a lake bed in Estonia. Evidently this Russian tank was captured by the Germans and probably saw battle on the Narva Front in 1944. Military Historians and locals dragged it from the lake bed intact and in excellent condition, and they claim it didn't need much fiddling to get the motor running.
    I tried to post the pictures but never had much luck with that. There's 13 picks plus a page of story line so it's quite a large file.
    If anyone is interested you can Email me and I'll gladly send you the complete file. Maybe you'll have better luck posting it. It's too good to discard and needs posting so other members can drool over it also. Cheers.

    Thanks guys, Jolly good show, I figured it would be on the site, but I searched a few times and couldn;t find it, probably lookin' in the wrong place as usual. Wasn't expecting it to be new, had it for a while myself. No harm done. cheers.
