"Maybe they shouldn't leave them out in the rain"
Leaving the aircraft hall, Mr Monkey found a courtyard, in which someone had left a collection of tanks (and a few halftracks). As well as the IS-3 Stalin and the Churchill Mk IV they've got a couple of Shermans, a Hetzer, a Panzer IV and a number of other large lumps of metal. Mr Monkey did notice that a lot of seemed to have more holes in them than when they'd been built, which was a bit alarming.
You can read about the IS-3 at the Russian Battlefield website and about the Churchill tank at the Armour in Focus website.
