Pulling T-34 tank


In the summer of 1944, into Myaatas lake, retreating Nazis threw out a captured Soviet tank T -34. This tank ended up burying itself into the water, but Igor sedunov found it and organised the lift for this tank.

The scuba divers of clubs "Search" and "Ikhtiandr" over almost three weeks eroded the six-meter layer of peat and silt covering the T -34. The tank lay at a depth of 9 metres.
