Re: [G104] Empire Heritage
- Nope, restoring a tank stuck in bog for 70 years is a lot easier. The bog is both fresh water and most of the oxygen is gone, reducing corrosion. Salt water will destroy every internal component. The only thing that will stand is the armor and even that will be severely pitted. Now, if the Sherman was sitting next to the Titanic or Bismark, you might be better off ( the deeper the better ).

Looks like there are a few 105 Shermans in the mix.
