WORLD WAR 11 TANK
Years ago, a local boy was walking by Lake Kurtna Matasjarv. He noticed tracks leading into the lake, but not coming out anywhere. The lake was too small for boating or anything like that and located in the middle of nowhere. He knew that there was no good reason for those tracks being there which heightened his curiosity.
For two months, he saw air bubbles emerging from this lake. After some investigation, a team started to probe deeper into the mysterious clues surrounding the lake. What they pulled from Lake Kurtna Matasjarv is nothing short of absolutely amazing.
The path, which appeared to have been gouged into the ground, led into the water, and there was no vessel or body in sight. But there were bubbles coming from the bottom of the lake in a steady stream.
After notifying authorities, they decided to take a look at the cause of the air bubbles coming up from the lake. They knew it was big and decided to pull whatever it was out from the mud at the bottom of the lake.
They started pulling this massive thing out at 9:00 am and continued pulling for 8 more hours using some very heavy equipment and giant steel cables. They quickly realized it was a full size military tank, leaving people scratching their heads.
The weight of this sunken tank was around 30 tons and they required a 68-ton bulldozer.
The tank appeared to be a Soviet-built T34/76A, and it is now believed that it was abandoned in the lake to keep it out of enemy hands.
