Igor Sedunov, member of the board of the military history club Otsing, said that the tank was lifted from the bottom of the local lake back in 2000, but work on its restoration began only 4 a month ago.
He was wearing German crosses - he was captured. And there were also inscriptions. The tank belonged to the Estonian Rifle Corps, and in the battles of Narva he passed to the Germans. So unique история,said Sedunov.
The restoration of the car took place in the shops of the Metall Ehitus company with the support of the Estonian Military Museum and private enterprises.
The goal was in no way to spoil and not to make at the same time a new tank. We needed to preserve it, so it was very important to constantly coordinate it in order to understand that we are doing everything correctly,said one of the managers of the company, Maxim Peresokov
He noted that "so far the workers have managed to restore only the car body, which was surprisingly in good condition." The next task is to restore the chassis tankthat according to the plan should be completed before the end of the year. After that, the tank will take its place in the museum in the Estonian city of Sinimäe.
Still, the tank should be in the museum. This is the story of our Ida-Virumaa,convinced Sedunov.
