You won’t believe how well a swamp preserved this World War II era tank!
This old tank sees daylight for the first time in nearly 70 years in this amazing footage. It took some muscle to get this thing out!
That thing was absolutely buried in there! I’m wondering how on Earth they even managed to locate it? Even more amazing is the remarkable preservation effect the mud had on the tank. Once they hose it down, it looks like it is ready to roll and fight again!
What an amazing piece of history. I wish I knew more of the story. How did the tank end up in a swamp upside down? I’m no expert, but it doesn’t look like it took any battle damage.
Even more interesting would be to know what happened to the tank’s crew. Did they abandon it when it became hopelessly stuck? Did they die in battle or were they captured? And what was their mission?
I guess one might never know. Part of what makes this video so fascinating is the mystery.
