Hello everyone,

as a part of the “Remember everything” initiative (Wargaming supporting various historical events in Russia and Belarus), Wargaming decided to start a fundraiser to save/restore certain museum pieces and asks Russian players to donate money to the cause. The first project of this initiative will be the restoration of Lenin-Snegiri military museum museum collection.

The museum is located at the spot of one of the firecest battles, where the German SS division Das Reich fought the Soviet 78th Rifle Division (commanded by Afanasy Beloborodov) during their approach to Moscow in the winter of 1941. For its bravery, the 78th Rifle Division was renamed to 9th Guard Division on 26.11.1941. You can see the presentation here (there are English subtitles):


The museum contains some pretty unique pieces, including a German Tiger. The initial stage of restoration has already begun in October 2014 with the installation of MS-1 tankette, an M-30 howitzer and some mortars. The rest however needs more money, hence the fundraiser.

The initial installation:
