T-34/85 Tank Narva

This Russian T-34/85 tank was lost during the battle of the Tannenberg line (25 July 1944 - 10 August 1944). In 1970 it was recovered and placed on a pedestal to commemorate the Soviet casualties of this battle. The memorial is also marking the spot where the Red Army broke through the German lines and moved into Estonian territory.
