    A KV-1 russian tank was found a few days ago in the bottom of the "nevo" lake in sant petersboorg. There was a really big war in that place that lasted for about a 1-2 years i am not mistaken.... So they found a KV-1 tank in the bottom of the lake next to a body of a german soldier and 2 bodies of russian soldiers.
    I found that pretty exiting and i wanted to post it in here :)
    If you want the article tell me, just it is in russian

    The link was there, just a bit hard to see because of coding, it is fixed now.
