Do you remember the friendly mechanics featured in the T-34 documentary? In this little episode, we follow them as they go hunting for old tank corpses in the abandoned woods, where battles were once fought on.

Can they do that here in the Philippines? WWII tank found at bottom of Manila Bay

MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippine Coast Guard inspected on Wednesday a 65-year-old battle tank, which a private contractor of the Pasig River rehabilitation project accidentally dug up off Manila's South Harbor over the weekend.

Commander Armand Balilo, Coast Guard spokesperson, said personnel of Kwan Sing Construction Corp. recovered the Sherman M4-A1 tank while doing dredging activities near the breakwater in Baseco Compound, Tondo early Saturday.

According to Balilo, the tank was commonly used by the US military during World War II.

Fearing that the tank still contained explosives, he said barge operator Alex Froilan immediately informed the Coast Guard about their find.

"When we checked on it, we found several bullets for Garand rifles inside the tank," Balilo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Balilo said the recovery of the tank may support the belief of some residents that a US military ship sank in the area at the height of the battle between the US and Japan.

He noted that a vintage cannon was also discovered in the same spot two months ago.

Balilo said the tank would be brought to the Coast Guard headquarters in Pier 15 on Thursday for safekeeping.

"We will immediately inform US embassy officials and the National Historical Institute because they might be interested with the tank," Balilo said. Tanks Smell of Manila Bay ^_^

If only I could speak Russian, or if there were sub-titles, another tank documentary dvd to add to the wish list, also reminds me of a couple of vids I watched with a former employer a couple of years ago, one of a t-34 with german markings recovered from a lake (they tried to drive across when it was frozen)  & the other of a stug III being recovered from a swamp & it still had the crew inside
