8 Historical Battle Tanks Submerged In Water Which Are Home To Nature Now

Wars are events reported by states when diplomatic means are neglected or nullified. Encounters with guns, bombs and tanks were their measure of power and supremacy. In history, there were myriad wars that made economic, financial and social conflicts among nations. Even more, these engendered trauma and residues cannot be forgotten. 

Some marks of wars were still exposed to the modern civilization. For some reasons, governments did not have specific measures to dispose them. Battle tanks, for instance, were left in shorelines, under forest canopies, covered with snow and the likes. In other words, they're still there but some force overpowered it-- nature. 

Countless biotic elements and outputs of natural processes were spotted to have conquered degraded battle tanks. While these symbolize nature's capability to cover history, it proves that they can co-exist.
