Military Review

Museum of military equipment "Military glory of the Urals." Artillery and armored vehicles


Imagine that you are a visitor to the museum of paleontology and with your head upright, walk enthusiastically between giant diplodocus and other pterosaurs. And then they tell you - I'm sorry, they say, but it's time to feed the animals. The plate "Dinner" hangs up and the exhibits with the uterine rumbling run into the backyard to grumble my carrot. I experienced something similar when I asked the museum superintendent of the “Military Glory of the Urals” about the reason for the presence of a large number of empty pedestals and the absence of the exhibits themselves.
How is it where - they looked at me with undisguised surprise - they went to the parade!
And here is a video from the museum.

It is good that not everyone left, and we have a great opportunity to get acquainted with what constitutes the "military glory of the Urals". Many of the presented exhibits were made, in the literal sense of the word, behind the adjacent fence.
Let's start with artillery rows.

The 2А36 "Hyacinth-B" is a Soviet 152-mm towed gun with an increased range of fire, developed in the hard currency of the Perm machine-building plant in November 1968, under the direction of Yu.N. Kalanchikov. In 1976, 2А36 was adopted by the Soviet Union and was intended for the suppression and destruction of manpower, fire weapons and military equipment of the enemy on the march, in places of concentration and in strongholds. The length of the barrel along with the muzzle brake is 8197 mm.

The 2А61 howitzer is one of the newest artillery pieces of the Russian army. The howitzer was developed by the State Unitary Enterprise (State Unitary Enterprise) "Plant No. 9" Yekaterinburg.

The muzzle brake is just epic.

The 2А45М "Sprut-B" was created at the end of the 1980-s in the Petrov design bureau. This 125 millimeter semi-automatic weapon is interesting because with the help of an auxiliary power unit it can move independently over short distances to get away from return fire.

The 100-mm anti-tank gun MT-12 (GRAU index - 2А29, in a number of sources has the name "Rapier") is a Soviet towed anti-tank gun created at the end of the 1960-s. In the background, its early version of the 100-mm T-12 gun.

Heavy assault tank KV-2.
The armored hull of the tank was welded from rolled armored plates of thickness 75, 40, 30 and 20 mm. Equal strength armor protection (armor plates with a thickness other than 75 mm, were used only for horizontal armoring of the machine), countering. The armor plates of the frontal part of the machine were installed at rational inclination angles.

KV-1 (Klim Voroshilov) - Soviet heavy tank during the Second World War. Usually it is simply called “KV”: a tank was created under this name and only later, after the appearance of the KV-2 tank.

T-34 is not required. The evolution of weapons and the turret in the process of modernization is clearly visible.

Heavy Soviet tank IS-2. The tank was adopted by the Red Army at the end of the 1943 of the year and was mass-produced from 1943 to 1946. It is a modification of the tank EC-1 with weapons, reinforced by the installation of a very powerful 122-mm gun D-25 with a muzzle brake.

Paint marked places hit by armor-piercing shells.

Perhaps the most beautiful tank created for all history. EC-3 (Object 703) - Soviet heavy tank during the Great Patriotic War, launched into serial production in its last days and not having time to take part in it.

And in conclusion some modern technology.

      Recently there was an article (photo reportage) about this museum, of course the exhibits can be looked at endlessly, the video was also pleased, but I would like to see a photo of the "room" exposition. The commentators had the opportunity to argue about the authenticity of the samples. I am glad that the author gives explanations to the photo. plus and sequels. yes

    Wow! good That's just a pity that stands on an open area request Well, at least some kind of hangar, a lightweight pavilion from the weather, would definitely not hurt.

      Of course, the fact that they are standing on the street is not good, but you can immediately see by the state of the expanses that they are watching the equipment, and they are following it not very badly.

    The last photo is shocking with the contrast between the epic power imprinted in the armor of Soviet tanks and the complex of modern museum visitors.

    It seems that contemporaries are unconsciously embarrassed by the power and memory of their ancestors for the lack of comparable achievements.

    The last time was there in November last year. Time has passed, it seems, nothing at all, but the changes are cardinal. We still need to go.

      Thank you for the video, Genady1976, I’m definitely waiting for the continuation, although in general the situation with the state of the exhibits is depressing, for sure rare samples (mainly German equipment) are washed away at the edge of the field, and then disappear into the quiet.

    A huge plus. I would very much like to wish the author of the material not to be shy to climb over the tape and upload more photos from different angles, close and distant. I like such collections very much, a large number of photos will not spoil the article, but rather will brighten it, because unfortunately not everyone has the opportunity to visit such places.
