In Almaz-Antey Concern, the Alley of Memory of General Designers is opened

“The composition is a series of monuments — bronze busts along pedestal areas, on pedestals with the image of air defense devices developed by designers. These are the monuments to Joseph Matveyevich Drize and Anatoly Ivanovich Savin, opened earlier this year, and four newly erected monuments: Alexander Andreyevich Rasplein, Peter Dmitrievich Grushin, Boris Vasilyevich Bunkin and Lev Veniaminovich Lyulyov, ”the release reads.

Alexander Raspletin, whose name is today one of the largest enterprises of the Concern, headed the creation of the C-75 and C-125 air defense systems, long-range C-200 air defense systems. He also owns the initiative to create the well-known C-300 ZRS, after the death of the designer, called Favorite.

Peter Grushin is an outstanding rocket developer for these systems and complexes. Its activities are also directly related to the creation of the first Russian anti-aircraft missiles for C-25.

Boris Bunkin directly participated in the development of the first Soviet ZRS X-NUMX Berkut, which was included in the echeloned air defense system of the capital. And later, under his leadership, the already mentioned ZRS C-25 PMU Favorit was created.

Lev Lyulyev is the creator of the ZRS for the ground forces C-300В ("Antey-2500"), the legendary designer of anti-aircraft guns and optical sights for them. In the years of the Great Patriotic War, about 15 thousand of fascist aircraft were shot down from the guns created by Lyulyev. Subsequently, he directly led the work on the creation of the Krug missile system, designed to cover parts and formations of the Ground Forces.

The life and work activities of these unique, without exaggeration, people are inextricably linked with the realization of the idea of ​​maintaining strategic balance in the world, preventing global catastrophes and the possibility of unleashing armed conflicts, especially between nuclear powers. All of them for many years selflessly worked in the defense field, forged the power and glory of our Fatherland, creating the most complex military systems. We are opening this Alley of Memory, wishing to preserve the memory of legendary scientists, designers, of their invaluable achievements, so that the lives, deeds and actions of these people always serve as reference points for young people, who today join the Concern’s team in large numbers,
said the company's general director Yan Novikov.

    "We are opening this Memory Walk, wishing to preserve the memory of legendary scientists, designers, their invaluable achievements, so that the lives, deeds and actions of these people always serve as guidelines for young people."..

    Good deal ... After all, basically our designers and scientists are classified, shaded, blurred in time ...
    It would be nice not only to establish such alleys in one concern (s) ... After all, you can create a Memorial of Glory for military inventors and designers, on which Alleys of Glory can be created precisely by type and type of activity and troops ... It would be interesting and useful not just youth ...

    Everything is so beautiful outside, but!
    The workshops are old, concrete blocks from the roofs fall on the heads of the factory workers (PE spring 2017!
    Inside the factory - bestial cows! The repaired workshops can be counted on the fingers of one hand!
    Nepotism! The latest developments of the plant were decades ago. They work according to the yellowed drawings of the 80s!
    Instead of new workshops - parking lots for engineers!
    You can safely expect further collapses of roofs!

    And where is the monument to Efremov V.P., Semenikhin V.S.?
    Efremov V.P., Bunkin V.V., Semenikhin V.S. were my good comrades. With Savin A.I. worked less. For its companions, LNIRTI, which was part of my GU, created SEV. But we were always together at the Collegiums of the USSR Ministry of Radioprom. Bright memory to them. They were very much appreciated by the USSR Ministry of Defense and D.F. Ustinov personally. I have the honor.
