Divers investigating the vehicles located at the bottom of the Vistula Lagoon have identified the models of the cars found. A total of four cars sunk in the winter of 1945 were found. The state of preservation leads us to believe that at least two of them will be excavated and placed in a museum.

Investigations by employees of the Polish Maritime Museum confirmed the theory that the cars were sunk during the crossing from Tolkmicko to Krynica Morska and sank as a result of Bolshevik gunfire.

As Iwona Pomian told PAP, two of the found cars are in very good technical condition and will most likely go to the Armoured Weapons Museum in Poznań.

The Dampkraftwagen and Steyer 1500 are heavily damaged, while the situation is much better for the Opel Blitz and the Bussing NAG 4500.

Traces found at the site indicate an earlier “search” of the site by pseudo-military hunters who had stolen the contents of a box, representing the cargo, from one of the trucks.
