There is almost no part of the planet where we’re not able to see the consequences of the war and human destroying, but if there’s anything that always makes ingenious solutions, it’s definitely the nature.
We present you 8 historic weapons conquered by nature.
1. Bulbul Gun, Afghanistan
The Bulbul bird have found her seat on the pipe of the gun that Soviets left in Afghanistan during their retreat. This Middle-Eastern and Asian species is quite adoptive, which can be seen there as it made a nest taming once-deadly weapon.
2. World War II Sussex Flowerpot, UK
This WWII tank is located in West Sussex, Great Britain. Once used as a target during artillery exercises, it’s now completely covered with vegetation that found a way through every single hole.
3. Underwater American Tank, Red Sea, Jordan
The American M42 Duster tank with 40-mm anti-aircraft gun is now located on the bottom of the Red Sea near Jordan. Once powerful weapon has become a coral ridge and habitat for various fishes that find a safe place escaping of dangerous predators inside of it.
4. Amphibious Tin Jungle, US
The US amphibia, once serving for landing, lies now in the jungles of Palu, where it serves to nature as a gardener. Rust, that can be found on on its surface doesn’t bother the plants as they are growing and breeding swimmingly in this strange habitat.
5. World War II Fahrenberger Meschersmith, Germany
The Mediterranean has always been full of various old war and civil shipwrecks, while since 20th century, the Mediterranean Sea has started to charge with fallen planes, too. This wreck of German WWll Meschersmith, fallen above the sea near French coast, is often visited by divers. Once being a German Luftwaffe’s trademark, it’s now permeated to algaes, which used hard surface to hang themself to it.
6. Pilot on the Bottom of the Ocean, Hawaii
Near the Hawaiian beach, on the bottom of the sea lies WWII war plane. Except for fishes and sea vegetation, the plane served also for the fun to this brave diver, who didn’t hesitate to get into the reamins of the cockpit and spend a few minutes imagining he’s in the sky, not under the sea.
7. Sherman on the Beach, Saipan
This M4 sherman once was a ‘fear and tremble’, however, his last mission was on the not so thanful place – the beach today covered by the sea. So, his wreck peaks now above the water surface when it’s reflux time, attracting the attention of the tourists and passers-by.
8. Almighty Cactus, Russia
Abandoned Russian tank in Eritrea is completely conquered by cacti, that turned him into the some kind of a flowerpot. One more proof of the nature’s ingenuity, as well as her artistic talent.
