Russian army pulls up WWII T-34 tank from bottom of the Don River

The world’s only surviving T-34-76 tank was pulled out of the Don river near Voronezh today.

Discovered tank is the world’s only preserved tank of this type. In 1942, 600-1000 units were produced, that went from the Stalingrad tractor plant directly into combat.

Allegedly, the tank fell through the ice while crossing the river when the tank crew was retreating in August of 1942. No bodies were found inside.
