This Tank Was Discovered Hidden In 10 Feet Of Mud So They Restored It. The Result Of Their Efforts Is Rewarding!
All over the world, artifacts from the World War II era keep turning up during excavations. Most people find undetonated bombs buried deep within the ground. This time, a group of individuals found something even better.
The Sturmgeschütz IV (StuG IV), was a German assault talk – a variant of the Panzer IV used during the latter part of the Second World War. These tanks were used exclusively as tank destroyers and tactical planning vehicles during the last couple years of WWII.
After the Germans lost the war, lots of their war machines went missing. Some of them were destroyed while others were abandoned or lost.
In 2006, a group of amateur historians tried to trace the steps of former WWII soldiers in order to locate a StuG along the way.
Luckily, they were able to find a of the StuG IV waiting patiently for 5 decades at the bottom of a river, covered in 10 feet of mud.
