After looking at the girls a while, are you sure you it wasn't your own 'gun' you found?

Fox Business has a show on in the evenings called Strange Inheritance.  The episode last night was about a gentleman that purchased tanks and restored them.  The center piece of his collection was Panzer V Panther that had sat at the bottom of a river for 50 years.

Is that the engine deck hatch up against the turret side, or some hind of ad-hoc armor skirt?

They're all Russians. Crazy crashes are a daily occurrence.


I wonder if Russian tankers install dash cams...
