The collector of tanks from Great Britain, Nick Meade, discovered five gold bars in the fuel compartment of his combat vehicle, the cost of which is about $ 2.5 million.
55-year-old man said that he bought a T-54 tank for about $ 37 thousand to add it to his collection of 150 copies.
According to him, each of the gold ingots, which he and his mechanic discovered when inspecting the fuel compartment, weighs about 5 kg.
He believes that gold was looted by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait during the war in the Persian Gulf (1990-1991).
About the find, Nick told the police, because, he said, they with the mechanic “did not know what to do.”
