After what seemed like forever, the strange object finally revealed itself.
It was a tank from WWII in nearly perfect condition.
The tank appeared to be a Soviet-built T34/76A.
It is now believed that the tank was abandoned in the lake to keep it out of enemy hands.
The tank, which weighed over 27 metric tons, had been at the bottom of the lake for 56 years.
This all took place just one thousand feet from what is today a disc golf park!
Watch the footage of the tremendous effort it took to get the old tank out of the mud:
