      There have been a couple I think, it was a link to this story that led me to ACG in the first place. If you find the original thread with link there is some video of the recovery as well. Would have been last September.

      Wait until Twotanks sees they have called it a T34/76A, he is going to go ballistic!!!

        In the last pic on this version, the caption reads "Later,after servicing, the diesel engine started".

        Do they mean to say that they serviced the engine or overhauled it ? Replace the oil and fire it up ? .............or tear it down, clean it up, replace parts, etc...... ??

        I would find it hard to believe that after 60 odd years of sitting at the bottom of a lake, a tank could be "serviced" and just started up like that. Although I've had a similar experience with a Dodge Colt.
        Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

          If you find the videos there is one of them starting it. Doesn't look like they did much to it, pretty much as you say.

            He already has. I'm over it now.
