Sprängd Kingtiger låg i vägbank

Visserligen inte nytt, men det är inte varje dag en tysk Tiger-stridsvagn hittas. Någon som vet vad som händer med detta fynd.
Kingtiger turret parts found in 2001 near Mantes-la-Jolie (France)
This tank from the 101 SS.s.Abteilung was lost in a crater near Fontenay-Saint-Père on 26 August 1944. It was blown up by a scrap
dealer after the war and the small metal bits were buried when the D913 road was constructed. Bruno Renoult, a local historian,
discovered and recovered parts of the turret, including the roof and parts of the turret’s left side.The hull of the tank still remain (in bits) under the road. There is a project to recover all the bits still remaining under the road, to reconstruct the tank and to build a monument where the tank will be displayed, but it encounters technical and administrative difficulties.
