    Yes, the armored boat will be reconstructed.
    Here is the movie of Russian television:

    В Волгограде идет реконструкция поднятого со дна Волги бронекатера

    In Wołogograd reconstruction of the boat raised from the bottom of the Volga is carried out



    The first stage of the reconstruction of the military armored boat which was lying on the Volga for 75 years, is coming to an end. Restorers set the task - to give the ship the look that it had at the time of death. The specialists of the military-historical museum "Heritage" conduct a large research work, which will make it possible to clarify this page of the Battle of Stalingrad.
    Even during the Battle of Stalingrad, Soviet ships came to the shipyard to repair the holes and return to service. The C-40 armored boat was delivered for reconstruction after 75 years.
    Restorers set the task - to give the ship the look that it had at the time of death. The specialists of the military-historical museum "Heritage" conduct a large research work, which will make it possible to clarify this page of the Battle of Stalingrad.Even during the Battle of Stalingrad, Soviet ships came to the shipyard to repair the holes and return to service. The C-40 armored car was delivered for reconstruction after 75 years.
    He was raised with the crew from seven meters deep in the Krasnoslobodsk area. It is known that there were only seven such boats. Until now, it was believed that none survived.
    Since the rise, less than two months have passed. The body and cabins of the armored car were cleaned of sand, some of the equipment was dismantled, the surface was freed of rust and a protective earth was applied to preserve it for the time of reconstruction. By the way, the armored car color is acquired by the one that originally had.

    Dmitry Kabelkov, head of the shipbuilding organization: "The paint is selected in one color, which was used in painting BC and military equipment. The paint was ordered, which was painted before 1942 ".
    Restorers see that the crew fought for the buoyancy of the ship to the last. Perhaps hanging from the side, right on the run scored chopiki.
    You want to compare an armored car with a wounded man, he literally does not have a living place. A deadly blow fell on the engine compartment. The explosion exploded into two parts. And here was found the body of the captain. He died in the cabin at the fighting post.

    So many years - in the water, with a strong current preserved things. Among them, a lot of names, which allowed to establish the identity of their owners. The specialists of the military-historical museum "Heritage" are now working with the list of crew members according to the information of the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense, studying other sources. Perhaps the death of this particular boat is described in the memoirs of the participant in the battles in Stalingrad of German Lieutenant-General Vigant Wester. There is a version based on archival documents and memoirs of our veterans. According to her, the boat discovered ran aground and was blown up. It is numbered 31, laid down at the plant in Zelenodolsk under the shipbuilding program of the NKVD, as part of the Volga Military Flotilla, participated in the Battle of Stalingrad and died October 9, 1942.

    The position of the gun tower can be seen, the crew fired back. The levers of the captain's wheelhouse were set to the "Full forward" position. Restorers will need another three to four months to bring the armored ship into its previous form.

    Dmitry Kabelkov, head of the ship-raising organization: "Work is important, priceless as experience and as participation in this event. We understand - a heroically lost ship, with a crew, with a long history. "
    And in the coming year, new discoveries are not ruled out. According to the results of the survey at the bottom of the Volga there are about 260 ships sunk in the days of the Battle of Stalingrad.
