For those of you who share my interest/ passion/fascination with the arms of the eastern front here's a site for you & highlights the discovery of a very intact Sturmgeshutz plus many other wrecks found as well:

Now in return could you give me what you consider the websites of the BEST WW-2 armored sims ,even those under developement like the long awaited ( recently released in Russia I understand..) one from Ubisoft? I want to send them to a buddy to show him what is available .
Thanks!

fascinating! Thank you James http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am now off to search for armor sims for you. In fact, I loved Panzer Commander, but haven't played any armor sim in years. I may like to get back into that

I share your feelings, a strange thing that there is no market for WW2 armor simulation.

To the original title, great finding http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Russia must have some treasuries hidden in her grounds, from the Huns to Germans(pun intended).

Incredible. Perfect time capsule---still in its winter whitewash and with snow/mud track extensions. Priceless. Should be preserved as is.

Here are the two forthcoming WWII tank sims (note: first one has a demo available right now):

That is like a time warp. It hardly appears to have aged at all, incredible even. Not a picture, not even an eyewhitness account, the real thing.

Would love to see that in real life.

Thx for sharing m8.

I know a guy in Germany that had to do some work a few years ago in Stalingrad. He is very interested in WW2 stuff also. He asked his Russian counterpart if there was anything left over from the war. The Russian told him there's a place outside Stalingrad that was a battle field and there are many tanks still there.

Of course this excited my friend but he decided he didn't want to go when the Russian told him there were still bones around the area.

Is anyone here from Russia, near Stalingrad that could confirm tis story? I find it hard to believe that after all these years all that metal would have been left and not recycled.

BTW, thanks James, that really a nice find. I wonder if they got it running yet. With all the German armor left behind I would think parts are nt so difficult to find.

Wow and double wow. I'm playing the Game "First Battalion" (another Russian import) now (when my machine's not acting up) and it's "alright". But I hate games that have only the 3rd person (outside the tank) view. I love a pit. I know I'd not be able to see much "inside" the tank but I prefer it.
