The Red Army was extremely resourceful,the AA was the perfect blend of simplicity and durability.In the early days of WW2 they fed 'off the march' basically eating what they found.During the extreme winters companies would rest using the 'rope'..the men would link arms and wind themselves up in a coil,gaining warmth from each others bodies,every hour or so a whistle would sound and the men would uncoil,the inside guys changing with the outside..

Probably the lake was Lake Ladoga at Leningrad (Now St Petersburg) The people of the city where starving and they had convoys of AAs (GAZ) Delivering supplies for a thousand days while the siege lasted. Thousands starved to death. There was an ice road across the lake and many trucks went through the ice.

Might be past restoration, but it'll make a great garage ornament. Inside a glass case filled with argon.

Reminds me of the joke that came from one of the late, great comedians of yesteryear, like Rodney Dangerfield or Henny Youngman.

"My wife called and said the car won't start.
I said 'why not'.
She said 'There's water in the carburetor'.
I said 'Water in the carburetor? Where is the car?'
She said 'At the bottom of the lake'.

This joke make me laugh a lot today.

During dinner time I told it to my family. They all looked at me opening their eyes probably thinking to call 911 because I was having brain damage. For sure, I will never be a comedian.

Loved that joke !!!

If it's GAZ AA (and I think it is) it was probably found at the bottom of lake Ladoga. The city of St Petersburg (Leningrad) was under siege and was being supplied by trucks across the ice on the lake. The Germans shelled them and bombed them and occasionally they sank. There are probably a few more down there too.

Lol to the posts above. Seriously though, I wonder where the rest of it is...I mean, did it all rust off or was it bombed and the other stuff was blown off?
