German light armored halftrack SdKfz 250 Ausf “Neu” was recovered from Pilica river near Górki village (Poland) by The Museum of Military Technology in Chrcynno. The late war version (“Neu” = new) was used in a variety of roles, including an armored scout vehicle, personnel carrier, prime mover for towed anti-tank guns, small howitzers, etc. Its in an amazing condition the front wheels rotate, tracks still on and also quite a bit of the original paint scheme visible. On that area only possible candidates of ownership that vehicle are 19 Pz.Div. and 25 Pz.Div. Reminds of red shields painted on the rear and front makes 25 Pz.Div. most likely candidate. 

After long period of preparation, hundreds of hours spent writing all the required documents, they have finally executed their plan in October 2015. They would like to present the extracted object in the next year on a display of their Museum. They invite you to look at the photos of their discovery
