    Default tank parts?

    here are some finds from last year, in a place where minor scraps happened between german soldiers and Tito partisans.Later on, also US troops passed by.

    Hi Matt, the word you are looking for is "Periscope".

    The long steel bar looks like the type of tool used as a crow bar to help replace tracks with and pry them into place. I cannot say which army would have used it. But it looks like one of those tools most armies must have used.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I can't say which army can use the tool like that, but it's aproperly done one. The soviets never made such a nice quality tools. ( at the russian language crow-bar is LOM)
    And the Russian saying is " against the crow-bar'n, no any trick's are known"
