Sherman and M10 Hull found in the woods

Never seen this one before, cool find. Looks like they where range targets for antitake rifle rounds, etc. as the sherman is just peppered with pentration rounds.

Always cool to find relics like these! Wish the video was longer, they don't really show much of the EBR. As was posted on the site, translation would be nice, but maybe not nessesary. Could make out "yankee", and "American" several times in the audio, but not much else. Accent is similar to French, but i'm stumped on that part, or where it was found.

First time I saw that vid. Pretty cool they found three tanks/vehicles in one place like that.

The third "tank" is what is left of a French Panhard 8 wheel armored car with a FL 11 turret.

You are right they sound french but there is also a bit of what sounds like Italian. Perhaps somewhere in the southeast corner of France/Italy? be interesting to find out why those tanks are there...
