Business of life: work and everyday life of Belarusian restorers of military equipment


In 2013, one of the divers of the underwater club discovered a 76-mm regimental cannon, model 1927. A rare find has rested on the bottom of the Dvina since the Great Patriotic War. Immediately after extraction, it was handed over to a team of restorers from the workshop of the Stalin Line historical and cultural complex. Due to the fact that the tool was in the river water with a high oxygen content for a long time, about 40 percent of the surface was eaten away by rust. To bring the equipment back to normal, the workshop specialists had to completely disassemble it, prepare more than 300 parts, and also make part of the gun shield themselves. After all the work, including painting, the gun was returned to its original form.

How to restore and create copies of military equipment, see the film "The Work of Life" from the creators of the famous game World of Tanks.

You can also learn from the film how restoration has become an integral part of life for Vladimir and Maxim Yakushev and Alexei Mikalutsky. Throughout the short film, shots of the work are replaced by episodes of the everyday life of the craftsmen, who spend most of their time in garage boxes. There men work and dine and rest, remembering interesting stories from the past.

      This is just one of the films about them. The Arms TV channel often shows them. Many things have been restored.
      And we are beyond the Urals where we will find the same 76-mm regimental cannon of the 1927 model
      And we have samples early, but there is no one to look for. From the civil still in the rivers a lot is submerged

        Well, I'm talking about the Second World War, here we can not compete with Belarus, of course, but on the other hand, with the Civilian - yes, a lot of things could be found even in good condition. Small on a fishing trip (they dug worms when) "revolver" was found carefully wrapped in an oiled cloth - the local history museum was taken down to the museum, about which now I even regret a little, to be honest ...

    Of course, well done, these guys ... the echo of the war goes further and further into the depths of the centuries, and each such restored find of that war is worth its weight in gold.

    Well done boys. About three years ago, Belarusian search engines found the remains of my grandfather's brother, a soldier of the NKVD troops, apparently identified by a badge, found a relative in the Belgorod region and reported.
