WWII Tank Found in Manila Bay

A history buff, I also love to collect World War II toy figures, tanks and planes. I was fascinated when I read today's news about a vintage tank found at the bottom of Manila Bay by a private contractor.

It was the people's belief in the area that an American military ship sank nearby in a battle between American and Japanese forces.

The Sherman M4A1 battle tank was used by the United States military in the second World War. The Sherman was the front line tank of the US Army and was named after Civil War General Tecumseh Sherman of the Union Army. It was a symbol of American might and industry.
