Lend-Lease trucks and jeeps were some of the most important items sent, more so than tanks and airplanes. The Soviet Army received hundreds of thousands during the war.


After the war, thousands of surviving vehicles, tanks and planes were put under hydraulic presses and crushed into scrap metal. What a pity. Not many survive in museums today. The Americans did this with their war surplus, too.
