    Default PzKpfw IV Ausf J found in Poland

    Hello,

    In the right place at the rigt time- my dream holiday. I would like to post few pictures taken by me. A small introduction: PzKpfw IV prabably Ausf J has been recovered in April 2011 from a field near the airport ( 21 feet underground), near Stargard Szczecinski- Kluczewo/ Poland. The parts were secured and transferred to the War Museum in Kolobrzeg/ Poland. The aim is to restoration from the parts recovered ( 80%). The tank was abandoned and supposedely blow up by its crew in 1944 or 1945.
    Conservation time could take several years . I can`t wait to see PzKpfw in War Museum in Kolobrzeg/ Poland after restoration process.


    Best Regards

    Alex

    First off...WOW! I'm also VERY happy to know this will be restored.I cant believe it was 21 feet down! I wonder if it was dumped in a bomb crater and then blown up? Interesting though. I love these stories of how tanks are found scuttled in a forzen lake or bog, then seeing it after restoration.This tank is one of my fav designs..I even made a 1/35 scale model of one. I cant believe most of these were scrapped."Tanks" for posting and PLEASE keep us updated as to the progress.

    PzKpfw IV belonged to 10. SS Panzer- Division Frundsberg or Panzer- Division Holstein (233. Reserve Panzer- Division ? ) operated in Poland in 1945.
    10. SS Panzer- Division Frundsberg fought in the Pomerania/ Poland in Mar 1945.
    Panzer- Division Holstein (233. Reserve Panzer- Division ?) fought in the same area in 1945.
