A testament to German engineering

What amazed me was the running gear was still working, and with a little bit of tinkering the engine fired up.

English Russia » Russian Tank Recovered from the Lake After 50 Years Been There

EDIT; Whoops it was actually a Russian tank. Still a good story though

Now that's just cool. I did not realize the Germans utilized captured vehicles. In the video, is he saying "It's short"? or is he referring to the time it took to pull it out?
Good find
