Artillery Museum in St. Petersburg has replenished with a new exhibit
Artillery Museum in St. Petersburg has replenished with a new exhibit - the tank "Sherman". 75 years ago, the American war machine followed the Arctic convoy to help the Soviet army, but the ship came under fire and sank in the Barents sea.

They occur after 75 years. The participants of the Arctic convoys from Russia, UK, Canada and the United States, and he is also American. Medium tank M-4 "Sherman", which, to the amazement of our mechanics, included the maker. In the Soviet Union "Sherman" began arriving in late 1942, this was sent at the end of the war until the destination reached only now. His war dragged on for decades and took place not on the fields of tank battles. "Sherman" was chosen to contain the attack of the slime and salt water of the Barents sea. Transport "Thomas Donaldson" off the coast of Murmansk, was torpedoed by a German submarine. Tons of ammunition, guns - everything went to the bottom. It was one of the last convoys.

To lift valuable cargo started just now. Spizzenergi shipbuilders have huge experience, but they were terrified as "American." A huge clod of dirt in the fighting compartment. Algae in the gun barrel. But, surprisingly, the majority of units and aggregates of "Sherman" is still like new. The tank stood on eternal Parking in the artillery Museum of St. Petersburg. In Russia such machines units. The only thing that failed restorers to find a bottle of cognac, which, according to legend, sent under lend-lease tanks to the allies over the ocean was something to celebrate. Perhaps the gift is still lying somewhere at the bottom of the Barents sea.
