VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Military Museum in Vincennes has acquired a World War II-era Soviet tank.

The Vincennes Sun-Commercial reports the massive tank arrived Thursday aboard a flatbed semitrailer from the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia.

Indiana Military Museum curator Jim Osborne says transferring the tank was the culmination of about two years of work.

In compliance with the museums' agreement, volunteers will restore the tank in Vincennes.
