German Tank Museum Statement on Primo Victoria

The German Tank Museum has provided a statement regarding the release of Primo Victoria. What are your thoughts on this?

Translated from their Facebook page:

Sabaton were here before in the museum and they are generally nice guys. We have cooperated with WoT as well. In addition, the German Tank Museum (DPM) and the Swedish Tank Museum in Enköping are befriended for a long time already.

German Tank Museum has lost its Tiger

The Tiger I that was displayed in the German Tank Museum in Munster has left the collection this week. The tank is owned by a private person that loaned it out for a couple of years but its time has come now to leave. Why? Well, the owner wishes to restore it to drive-able condition again!

The only historical reference I could find was that this version of the vehicle served for training purposes only and not on the battlefield.

Swimming Sherman salvaged

A lend-lease M4A2 Sherman was dug up from the ocean after being sunk by a German U-Boat in World War II. The tank was meant for the Soviet army to be used on the Eastern Front and bound for Kola, Russia.

Apparently the Sherman has survived 70 years of saltiness fairly well because of the rigurous packing methods the Allies applied when shipping equipment. In total over 4,000 Shermans were handed over to the Soviets in WWII.
