Kharkiv Armored Plant (KHBTZ) and State Enterprise Malyshev Plant (ZIM) begin the implementation of a joint program for the modernization of the main combat tank T-64BM2. This was stated today by the director of KHBTZ Vyacheslav Strelets during a visit to the enterprise of the head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Aleksey Kucher.


He also said that at the moment the enterprise has received an application from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine for the overhaul of 13 pieces of equipment. Now there is a process of preparation for the execution of this task.

Conducted design work, processing of the body. A more powerful engine will be installed - the car will become more modern.

- said the director of the defense plant.

The amount of the signed contract is 136 million hryvnias, which is more than 360 million rubles.

According to the head of the enterprise, 398 people work at the plant today. On average, their wages are about 19 thousand hryvnia, which is equivalent to 49-50 thousand rubles. The Kharkov Armored Plant intends to complete 2020 with a profit.

The T-64BM is the main battle tank of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. It was created by modernizing the Soviet-made T-64BV tank.

    Well, they are renovating. 13 pieces. While there are no battles - it seems even a little more than a company. If the battles are of medium intensity, it won't be enough for one day. laughing

                Since the beginning of 2014, specialists from the Kharkov Armored Plant (KHBTZ) have repaired and modernized about 400 tanks, Vyacheslav Strelets, the director of the enterprise, told ArmiaINFORM.
                According to him, in most cases, equipment repairs were carried out outside the plant, including in the Donbass. “If the problem is serious, then we return the tank to the plant in order to put it on the move in a short time,” said the general director.
                According to Strelets, in 2019 alone, KhBTZ specialists traveled almost 30 times to the east of the country to repair equipment. Over the past six years, there have been about 250 such trips.
                That is, the main, I will say more, the OVERWHEATING part of the tanks were repaired, taken not from the repair park, but in the troops. So, there is still plenty of scrap metal in the rempark. Moreover, this figure for all types of tanks, not just T-64
                The CEO noted that from the beginning of 2020 year, the enterprise he headed supplied the Armed Forces of Ukraine 11 modernized T-64... "This is only outwardly the T-64 tank," the publication quotes the commentary of the KHBTZ employees.

              The main problem is the lack of funding - there seems to be money - but it seems that they are no longer there, collecting 13 MBTs for modernization (by ourselves or with the help of the West) is already progress! )

      This is an average salary ranging from cleaning lady to director. With a microscopic for such an enterprise, a team of less than 400 people, in any case, at least 50 people with very good. high salaries (management and the leading core), that is, twenty percent .. So a hard worker there hardly gets more than a dozen, and even then with high qualifications ..

        Sighs nothing. Our tanks are new, and they are exactly old. Stood and rotted in the open air since Soviet times.

          You, however, have a kind of half-hearted perception of materials science and properties of materials, "their" tank rots in the open air, because "their", and "our" tank does not rot in the open air, because "our".
          After all, as it were, in view of the huge size of the tank fleet of the USSR and the hungry 90s, our tanks were stored according to a similar principle, especially considering the fact that the equipment of units withdrawn from the GDR / OVD was exported to Russia and Ukraine, with which they were then crammed all warehouses and landfills.
          Basically, with rare exceptions, measures were taken for the medium-term conservation of equipment, which was limited to pumping oil into the fuel system, sealing all connections, the fighting compartment and the gun barrel, no one remembered any shelter from the weather. Sometimes you can see beautiful warehouses where the level of humidity was maintained by means of pipelines, huge boxes and hangars filled with equipment to capacity, etc.
          But the main tank, which with a 90% probability will be upgraded, will be a rusty T-72 battered by life, or a T-80BV forgotten by God in the forests of Siberia, since all more or less high-quality stored equipment belongs not to the repair fund, but to the reserve / mobilization resource.
          Moreover, in an ordinary Soviet-made tank, only wiring, rubber (especially on rollers) and possibly some elements of the interior decoration can "rot", which is not something impossible in terms of repair or restoration.
          The only examples of an unreasonable approach to storing equipment in Ukrainian warehouses is the storage of a tank on top of another tank, but these are quite rare episodes, and in principle it will do, not the worst and not the best conditions in the post-Soviet space.

            Well, yes, but why are there constant complaints about the quality of equipment in the APU?
            After all, I know firsthand))
            Maybe because the storage conditions were absolutely unacceptable? Or because they sold the best and left themselves rotten trash?

              Constant complaints of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the quality of equipment, this is a subjective parameter and in our situation it is not entirely clear and reliable for me, and even more so it has nothing to do with the storage of equipment and its repair, because it is not specified what exactly they are complaining about, American and Russian tankers can also complain about the quality of their equipment, so it is also poorly repaired, or can everything be learned in comparison and the degree of modernization being carried out?
              It is difficult for an ordinary person to find complaints from truly Ukrainian tankers who do not give off the typical stuffing of Moskovsky Komsomolets.
              And again, the storage conditions will not affect the equipment in any way if it is overhauled, since already at the stage of selection of the repair fund, all "non-viable" equipment is rejected either as donors or at the end of the repair queue, which is actually logical. A tank cannot become "rotten junk" as you say, because there is simply nothing to rot there. It can rust, but even on the deadliest specimens that can be found in CIS warehouses, corrosion is unlikely to have eaten more than 2-4 mm, and these will most likely be regions with high humidity, large temperature differences and "salty" air. In Ukraine, none of the tank armored personnel carriers is standing on the Black Sea coast, the climate is moderate, as a result of which abnormal temperature drops are extremely rare.
              In addition, if you return to the original subject of the dispute, from which you moved away, then it was about the restored tanks.
              When Ukraine managed to sell off the armada of brand new T-64s, which in fact all remained in Ukraine, and the speech both in the current news and in your commentary concerned the T-64:
              Or because they sold the best and left themselves rotten trash?

              But this contradicts the previous words:
              Maybe because the storage conditions were absolutely unacceptable?

              What were they selling if the storage conditions were absolutely unacceptable?
              What are the conditions then acceptable? A considerable amount of T-72B3 (M) was obtained just by repairing old T-72 "from the grass", rusted and standing in the open air, or by restoring combat vehicles "killed" during operation. Following your logic, they are the same rotten trash, simply because they were standing in the open, although there is really nothing to rot out of the irreplaceable nodes, and I have no idea why you are trying to call metal corrosion and degradation of composites (with the rare exception of some elements of the interior decoration ) the decay process characteristic of biological compounds.
              Frankly speaking, you, trying to show your contempt for Ukrainians, on the contrary expressed your "phi" and disrespect for designers and production workers, about the use of equipment from storage, motivating with the logic ala "our bad is good, because ours, and their bad - this is bad, because they ", while it is clear that you are clearly not familiar with the process of conservation and restoration of equipment from the repair fund, and also that storage of armored vehicles in the open air is a typical phenomenon for the entire post-Soviet space, and even in Russia itself, under 80-90% of all armored vehicles are in the grass, open to all winds, and they are calmly restored, and this does not require super-efforts.
              The bottom line is that:
              1. Even tanks with the most primitive conservation since the Soviet Union are calmly going through storage outside the boxes.
              2. The Ukrainians could not sell the T-64 anywhere, so all the "best" copies remained with them, and their storage conditions are similar to those in which we store the vast majority of cars, and are stored for such a period of time.
              3. T-72B3 (M) is made of exactly the same old and rusty T-72B, which stood under the fence for 20-30 years and feels great, and is not "rotten trash" not because it is "new" or we have supposedly, grass and rain preserve the technique better, but because a 30-year-old rusty tank, unlike a 30-year-old rusty can of stew, is not subject to decay processes, and can be easily restored by the forces of even a small armored personnel carrier.
