Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

On 11 January 1944 the Soviet 143rd Rifle Division, partially equipped with the SU-76i, advanced on the town of Sarny in the Ukraine. Sarny is 180 miles west-north-west of Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine. The Division attacked over the frozen Sluch River, east of Sarny. An unseasonal thaw had weakened the ice and one of the SU-76iā€™s crashed through into the water below, trapping its crew inside.
It lay there until the autumn of 1972 when a period of drought lowered the level of the river, revealing the SU-76i. The vehicle was hauled out, restored and set on a plinth to serve as a war memorial. It has the number ā€œ3038ā€ marked on the superstructure side. The four crewmen were buried with full military honours in the local cemetery. (Source: R. Harley/AFV News).
