Anniversary of "Uralvagonzavod": not by wagons alone
Manufacturer of one of the most massive stories tanks of the T-72 family - the Uralvagonzavod enterprise. Not by wagons alone ...
The track record includes over a million and one hundred thousand units of rolling stock for the transport needs of the industry of the Russian Federation and the CIS countries. Plus hundreds of thousands of different armored vehicles. These are far from the only records. The launch of the first gondola car in heavy-duty version with 1520 gauge on October 11, 1936 is considered to be the date of commencement of the enterprise's operation. It is from this date that the plant has been leading its rich history. Today UVZ, a Russian company with worldwide fame, has an anniversary.
Nowadays, over 40 production enterprises, design bureaus, research organizations operate in the Russian Federation and abroad under the unified logo of the Uralvagonzavod concern. In the status of the leader of the domestic industry, the joint-stock company produces railway and road-building equipment, a separate place in the structure of the concern is occupied by the development and production of armored weapons.
With decades of unique experience behind them, starting from the school of production of the legendary T-34, the Ural tank builders kept their mark both when producing the famous T-72, and on the conveyor of the modern generation of T-90, and when creating a whole complex of promising developments based on the latest platform " Armata ".
The Concern participates in the implementation of the State Strategy for the Development of Robotics, calculated until 2030. One of the key priorities is focused on training young personnel specially trained for the implementation of robotic systems. The personnel policy of the holding's management is based on the practice of joint development of educational and research programs, which has proved its effectiveness. The partners here are representatives of the Ural Federal University and the South Ural State University. The consultants are specialists from the Bauman Moscow State Technical University and the Innopolis University.
More than 29 specialists are currently employed at various sites under the auspices of JSC Concern Uralvagonzavod. The enterprises are provided with orders for civil and special purposes until mid-000.
Finally - a couple more facts from the historical chronicle. The Chinese enthusiastically joined the competition, not hesitating to exhibit their "patriotic" copy of the 72nd model. Perseverance they do not take: they come every year, hone their skills. NATO "partners" in the Russian "Tank Biathlon" were invited to participate from the very beginning, but there they pompously denounced them until 2020, when it was already impossible to ignore the popularity of the Russian competition. The first semblance of "their" competition NATO members held at a training ground in Germany in 2020. The three winners are the crews of the Bundeswehr, Denmark and Poland. American tankers did not make it to the victory podium.
