Soviet tank arrives from Poland ({{commentsTotal}})

The Polish War Museum gifted its Estonian counterpart an old T-34 tank for its 96th birthday. The tank will be part of the heavy equipment exhibition, due to open this spring.

The T-34 is a Soviet era, Polish-built, war machine, that some historians believe was the best tank in use during World War II.

For now, the tank can be viewed in front of the Estonian War Museum in Viimsi. It will soon be moved to the museum's new heavy equipment hall.
