The Shepetivka plant in Ukraine is suspected of being ready to repair the Akatsia self-propelled guns using old spare parts

While the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine is pondering where to get funds for the massive purchase of the Bogdan self-propelled guns and Czech 152-mm self-propelled guns Dana M2, “the Armed Forces of Ukraine have to be content with Soviet-made equipment.” This is how the Ukrainian press describes the situation in the troops.


In particular, it is indicated that the Shepetivka plant resumes the repair of the ACS "Akatsia" and "Carnation" for the needs of the armed forces of Ukraine.

At the same time, the plant itself needs components for this type of weapon. At one of the sites, which in Ukraine is reserved for public procurement, spare parts are placed that must be purchased for the repair of 122-mm and 152-mm self-propelled artillery mounts.

The breadth of the list is impressive. There are dozens of items, including filters, hydraulic pumps, electric motors, diesel injectors, relays, control panels, shock absorbers, oil pumps, balancers, contact devices, igniters and much more.

In this regard, the Ukrainian journalists have a question as to why there are big problems with the increase in funding for the armed forces many times with the serial production of truly new equipment? The question also concerns where they are going to buy components for the Akatsia divisional self-propelled gun developed by Uraltransmash. In particular, fears are expressed that, in the end, there may be a scheme that has become traditional for the Ukrainian defense industry, when the missing spare parts of some equipment units are compensated with spare parts from other units. Moreover, such spare parts may have a long-expired service life. This process is usually called "military-technical cannibalization." In this regard, the Shepetivka Repair Plant is suspected of being ready to repair the ACS using old spare parts.

In some cases, it leads to the fact that the "repaired" equipment can literally stand up after a few days of operation after leaving the repair shop.

    Sooner or later, "donor" parts run out. As well as savings .... Any. Actually, everything ends sooner or later if you do not do something new and do not accumulate what you need. Ukraine got a LOT after the collapse of the USSR. This resource is not limitless. Gradually they eat up, sell, rent out, throw away .... I only wonder one thing: when the project "Ukraine" will end?

          For heaven's sake, what is left in your memory and soul: do not touch his memory at least! He was crap already: instead of a museum, they made a diner! And he chopped wood, and froze, bent over from sores so that KIEVLIANS (great gentlemen) SIT IN HEAT !!! And the Shepetivka plant, according to my information, has long been selling its machine park and renting it out with metal. It seems to smell like a major scam - time will tell.

        Tell me, here you are from one anti-Russian Baltic country, a pug, an Anglo-Saxon litter, such as Estonia.
        Not a year or 2 begging in the West.
        You are always noted in topics about the Sumerians, judging by the number of derogatory comments about the dillies.
        Do you hate them because of the inability to personally clean the gay European toilets for the last 5..6 years?
        I'm afraid to even suggest what else the little growers did not please such a European as you ??

          Well, I arrived under the Estonian SSR in 1968, and since August 20, 1991, before you live under capitalism. I can't yapping on mine (the sites are browsing the corresponding people), and the Sumerians worked for me before "Karona" and the negative on them is more than on their own. If they work, then there have never been any complaints about them. And theirs are much calmer and more benevolent.

      In the same way, planes and other military equipment are repaired, without purchasing new parts from the manufacturer))))

    There is another option.
    A certain firm, from, say, the EU, orders what is needed from the manufacturer.
    And then these components will go to Ukraine.
    And even despite the fact that everyone understands everything, our home-grown businessmen, professing the principle - "money does not smell", will sell everything.

    Journalists are either naive (it doesn't look like it) or the stupid are trying to pretend to be, although every schoolchild and grandmother in the village knows where and who gets the allocated money.

    The vastness of the list is impressive ... where are they going to buy components for the divisional self-propelled gun
    Where, where, the journalists themselves answered this question. They will engage in "military-technical cannibalization" and, if possible, muddy other schemes. The less ACS there will be in the Donbass, the better.

    Pans are, as always, in their repertoire. Real Banderlog - they love to yell and scream about how great, smart, handy they are, but in fact they are complete nonentities without brains, who can only ride and hate.

      Well, the earth is glass wool to him!
      So much, to suppress the "Russian Spring" in Kharkov and the region, as Kernes did, perhaps no one did. Although, some competition can be made by Benya Kolomoisky in the Dnipropetrovsk region.

    Where do donors come from at the Shepetivka plant, from which all these parts are removed?

    So military repair in wartime has always been like this. You can also find analogs of the required parts, which (analogs) were released for HX. Often they are produced according to the same technical specifications.

    Okay, they would suspect "intent." But suspicion of "readiness" is already a crime.

    Nothing new. All this has long been known. The Ukrainian so-called industry sweeps out all the spare parts from the cemeteries of Soviet technology ... the trouble is that these cemeteries are not bottomless and not eternal. All "new" and "modern" tanks, and other Ukrainian-made equipment are the same from these cemeteries
