Wyciągnięcie Shermana z rzeki…

Wyciągnięcie Shermana z rzeki znajdującej się w obwodzie Czerkaskim na Ukrainie. 2004 rok
Na końcu jest pewien, ostatnio bardzo znany na wykopie ukraiński generał i były minister obrony ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)pokaż spoiler i wódeczka ( ͡°( ͡° ͜ʖ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ʖ ͡°) ͡°) In February 1944 a lend-leased M4A2 Sherman tank was ambushed by German anti-tank gun when it was on the ice of the swampy Gniloy Tikich river in Cherkasy Oblast of Ukraine. The tank was hit twice — in the tracks and in the turret. The turret was knocked off the hull, three crew members were killed instantly. The driver survived but the next day he was found and shot by SS troops. This tank was found in 1998 and in November 2004 after a lot of effort it was dragged out from the swamp of the old riverbed on the bank by the team of enthusiasts supported by Ukrainian Army. In the gun barrel the found a 75 mm shell and they decided to unscrew the fuse and then hit the shell out with a sledge hammer! The M4 Sherman was distributed in the thousands by the Americans during WW II to the Allied forces and the Russians. The designers punted that the tanks had durability, middleweight, and size, a limited number of variations, so the parts and spares were standardized, and they were easy to produce. This tank took point on many of the major offensives launched by the Allied and Russian forces from 1942 onwards. The name ‘Sherman’ again was given by the British and came from the Civil War General, William Sherman. The M4 was the first armored vehicle to carry a gyroscopically stabilized gun and sight. This device only worked vertically and could not automatically slew the turret.
