Military Review

Photos from the museum in Verkhnyaya Pyshma - part of 2

9 May 2005 of the year at the central entrance of OJSC Uralelectromed in the city of Verkhnyaya Pyshma opened after the restoration a memorial complex in memory of factory workers who died during the Great Patriotic War.

In the same year, a group of participants in the Great Patriotic War, living in Verkhnyaya Pyshma, turned to Andrey Anatolyevich Kozitsyn, General Director of UGMK-Holding LLC, and Alexander Anatolyevich Kozitsyn, Director of Uralelectromed OJSC, to purchase and install two or three copies of military equipment from the memorial . So at the "Crane", near the Eternal Flame, which was lit in the factory shop from a jet of molten metal, appeared artillery guns.

Military technology so well fit into the architectural complex that almost immediately the idea arose of creating an entire open-air museum at the entrance of Uralelectromed OJSC. Its grand opening took place on 9 May 2006. The exposition at that time consisted of ten copies of military equipment: medium tank T-34-85, self-propelled artillery installation ISU-152, heavy tank EC-3, automatic anti-aircraft gun C-60, 152-mm howitzer D-1, car GAZ-67 , two anti-tank 57-mm gun ZIS-2, 76-mm divisional gun ZIS-3. The pearl of the collection was the legendary rocket launcher BM-13 "Katyusha", which took part in the Victory Parade 1945 of the year on Red Square. Two guns are located directly on a pedestal near the memorial, and the remaining eight exhibits formed an independent museum complex.

By order of the Commander of the Volga-Urals Military District No. 310 from 23 of October 2006, the Upper Pyshma exposition received the official status of the Museum of military equipment in the open air "Fighting Glory of the Urals."

    Wonderful open-air museum! A lot of rare equipment.
    There is something to see, it’s a pity that you can’t touch it!

    The theme of the street exposition of this museum is sufficiently illuminated, it is not the first photo reportage. I will give the author a plus for the readable signs, although there are also original photos (on the marine theme). I would very much like to look at the "indoor" exhibits. I would like to believe that if there is a part- This will be a photo from under the "roof". And yet, the first photos are repeated (about 3-10 pieces), this is not just a criticism. attention of the author, it is obvious that something "loaded" is wrong.

    It’s interesting that the T-28 and T-35 tanks were preserved somewhere. Thanks for the photo.

      Thank you, I took off the first part to one who was interested in the United States, he was very surprised, they know about Kubinka, and this is a revelation for him, I'll throw it off and the second. I tried to find material earlier, but everything is very scarce, but only here was more or less.
