Military Review

Plantations "Carnations" and "Cornflowers". We found in the city a huge arsenal of artillery and small arms, including trophy

There are hundreds of self-propelled guns, cannons, mortars, and other military equipment behind the 6000 volt fencing. Here are warehouses with small weapons different eras and states. They say that machine guns, machine guns, rifles and grenade launchers, which are stored, repaired and serviced here, can be equipped with an army of a small country. Few people know that all this beauty is located within the boundaries of Gomel, a few minutes drive from the center. with the consent of the military visited the closed territory.
Gomel residents who live nearby used to call this place the “Third Regiment”. The name is said to have gone since the civil war, when the 3 th Cavalry Regiment of the Red Army stood here. The official name of the military unit 63604 - artillery weapons base. But, as it turns out, the case is far from being exhausted by howitzers and self-propelled guns. Everything is much more interesting.

Plantations "Carnations" and "Cornflowers". We found in the city a huge arsenal of artillery and small arms, including trophy

Part was born on July 12 of the year 1941 as the 582-y field frontline warehouse. Since September 1945 is located in the Novobelitsky district of Gomel.

The tasks of the base are repair, storage, maintenance and delivery of rocket and artillery weapons to the troops. All small arms are also within the competence of the Gomel military.

On the wall at the commander of the unit, Alexander Mikhailov, is a whole exposition of souvenir symbols of military units from different states.
“Everything that is larger than 100 millimeters in size is subject to accounting in accordance with international agreements,” explains Alexander Mikhailov. - And these signs are left by officers who come to us with inspections. Accordingly, our drive to check their parts.

In addition to officers and warrant officers, civilian specialists work here. In Soviet times, conscripts also served. The legacy of them left the barracks - it is now used to place the "partisans" when they come to military training.
“There are no rocket artillery on our base,” says the deputy commander of the military unit for ideological work, Lieutenant Colonel Gennady Goncharov, who accompanies us. - Everything else that is in service with the army, we have. And also what is decommissioned.

By the way, this “what is removed” is of particular interest. But more on that below.
Administrative buildings, guard, barracks are separated from the territory where, in fact, weapons are stored and maintained.

Inside the technical area - a few more perimeters, protected by armed men, cameras, electricity.

A harsh woman in camouflage at the checkpoint of a technical zone is armed with a rubber truncheon and a TT pistol.

“No, I haven't had to use a pistol and a baton yet,” asks appraisingly.
Through inspection pass all, regardless of position and rank.

The security here is civil. Controllers - with pistols, sentries armed with Simonov carbines. They say that automata are relied only on the military.
And behind the next turnstile the most interesting begins. Moving around the area where the equipment is stored and maintained. From behind the trees, the first gun barrel peeps out. Then a couple more. Then a few dozen ...
And here is the first "Carnation" - self-propelled gun 2C1. And there is more. Soon the whole plantation is discovered ... (As it will turn out later - not one. In general, the richest herbarium, the dream of botany.)

The acting department of the storage of rocket-artillery armament, Senior Lieutenant Oleg Lyakhovets explained: some of the machines had recently come from parts, waiting for repairs. Others are served and preserved. It takes about an hour to unseal the crew seats, reinstall the batteries, refuel the car and start the engine.

Where this technique served, the documents attached to it are not visible. Perhaps some self-propelled guns passed Afghanistan.

Amphibious "Nons" perched on the side.

Away - guns.

Among the trees are hiding "Peonies" 2C7 - the legacy of the USSR. In Belarus, this weapon can only be seen in warehouses: it is not used by the troops.

Military equipment for storage arrives more and more. There are not enough sites, new ones are being cleaned and equipped. In the meantime, guns, armored personnel carriers, cars put on the ground.

Several amphibious armored personnel carriers have completed their resource. Now only in junk.

This is how the lugs look, to which the parachute system must be attached:

Gas trucks with awnings look quite peaceful. It can be taken for ordinary provisioning machines. But under the tarpaulin something puffs up. This "Cornflowers" - automatic 82-millimeter mortars.

Nearby in the GAZ-66 is hiding something bigger. It is a thickly greased 120 millimeter mortar 2B11.

It is hard to believe, but this sorokapyatka went through the war. The barrel and lock are rendered unusable, but the instrument is listed “on balance”. The gun carriage is working, the mechanisms work.

There are rich stocks of auxiliary equipment. Autonomous repair shops on the basis of ZIL allow repairing missile and artillery weapons in the field. They look, of course, not as impressive as armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns and mortars, but without them nowhere.

Having arrived at the Gomel base, the equipment that has suffered in the fields is being repaired, put in order and preserved - until such time as it needs to be sent back to the troops. Captain Oleg Yagovdik, senior engineer for the repair of artillery weapons, says that the workshop for repairing missile and artillery weapons is one of the main ones. Here are put in order self-propelled and towed artillery. As the mechanical part, and, in fact, shooting. Including radio stations, electronics, rocket complexes, which are armed combat reconnaissance and sabotage machines.

Now in the shop there are several "Acacia" and "Carnation", as well as BRDMy with rocket launchers removed.

It also “targets” the optics of rocket launchers that are mounted on BRDMs.

By the way, we were not allowed into the storage area of ​​small arms: the regime is very tough. Samples for shooting carried out of the gate.
“In the zone where the small arms are stored, there must be a so-called non-lethal electrical effect system,” the deputy commander of the unit explains.

- So these are the inscriptions about 6 of thousands of volts - this is reality, not props?
- What kind of props is here? Kill a man does not kill, but will throw ...
Local cats can read such signs.

In the background there is just the loading of the last Soviet rare weapon of the times of the Great Patriotic War. Trilineks and PPSh, who managed to do some fighting, served according to the rules, repaired and lubricated, will leave for the museum of one of the units of the mobile troops. Before that, the barrels and bolts have become unusable.
Previously, batches of genuine military weapons from the Gomel base have already been transferred to Belarusfilm.
We are shown one sample of what is stored (in fact, not all have shown an assortment of personal and collective weapons richer in warehouses).

There is a German Sturmgever MP-44. True, the state of his not so hot, suffered.

Submachine gun Thompson. This is not a weight and size layout, as in other civilian museums. The real Tommy Gan from the arsenal of the American police, marines and gangsters. Also served, repaired and listed in boring forms.

But in general, nothing unusual: such machines in small quantities were supplied to the Union under the Lend-Lease. There are more interesting specimens.
This inconspicuous Romanian machine gun "Orita" captured for some reason in Japan. As - as new. Looks like a toy in the hands of a huge senior ensign.

Whether our PPSh matter is convincing, stylish, youth.

Shpagin submachine guns were once a lot here. Now, here they send the remnants of luxury to a foreign military unit ...

In fact, there are pre-revolutionary weapons. This Browning is the same age as the Browning, from which Kaplan shot Lenin's grandfather. But the model is different.

These pistols VIS.35 armed Polish officers, tankers, cavalry since 1935 year. Wikipedia says that the Germans also used these Polish pistols during the occupation.

There was no shortage after the war - it was in such parabellums:

The owner of this may have been killed - and the pistol is like new. Only the plastic cover cracked.
Rifles and carbines of different countries, by and large, are variations on the three-line theme. However, you should be careful here: finding out what is better and what is primary, weapon fans are capable of unleashing a third world war.

On the captured rifle Walter can see the stamp of the Third Reich.

There is a feeling that you are in a museum. But it is unlikely that at least one museum can boast of such a variety of real weapons, not layouts. Yes, and everything is stored here not for shows to the public. readers are among the few who have seen it.
Do not get lost in this variety of rifled weapons. Even an expert will find something new.

Modern weapons arriving for repair or storage are served by civilian specialists. Including optics for sniper rifles and other weapons.

Protecting all this is a major task. Technical means are developing, ways of carrying guard duty are being improved, but the good old guard with human beings is an indispensable attribute of any decent part. In the guard town, all situations that may arise at the post are handled.

Here is the service of the paramilitary security team. These are civilians who have been trained in the protection of military facilities.

They say that a weapon capable of conducting automatic fire is relied upon only by the military. Therefore, VOKHR got Simonov's self-loading carbines.

The security system on the memory of guard glitches has not yet given. There are several levels of protection. Video cameras "shoot through" the perimeters of each protected area. At the disposal of sentries - towers, searchlights, loudspeakers, trenches, walkie-talkies, wired telephones. And, of course, carbines, which, according to folklore, "punch rail" (along, along with an armored train). With awesome bayonets.

          Degtyareva infantry 1927 of the year? It is unlikely that this can be restored - the mechanisms are thoroughly rusted. Drive - generally to eject or make a copy.
          And the warehouse is notable. But who is all this? We had two brigades "in storage": artillery and engineering. They all finished. For a mobile reserve, neither footcloths nor trunks are now fashionable. There will be no big war. They will destroy us "locally"; "in places".

            Mostly they sold outdated and surplus weapons. In cities like Brest and Grodno they disbanded their arms depots almost completely, sold and relocated to the same Gomel, Vitebsk and Mogilev regions, since the enemy at the gates was across the Poles-NATO river. fantasize, he monitors the situation with weapons personally and will not sell the latter, but he does not forget about the rout of the summer of 1941.
            But there are weapons, don’t worry, the Belarusian military district was perfectly staffed and we got 90% in the 100s.

    Even the pictures show that order is maintained on the territory of the unit. And this is clearly not a showy part. And the "assortment" of small arms is capable of "breaking the roof" of an understanding person. I was convinced again that Belarus is ahead of us in establishing proper order in the army, and in life in general.

      To please Amers in the 90s, there was so much equipment, even quite suitable for the pits (!!! literally in the PITs), having stupidly broken sights with sledgehammers, the sights were buried. Both the equipment that was in storage and the equipment removed from Afghanistan ... tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, BRDMy, armored personnel carriers and what just did not dig ... Herods.

    In fact, there are pre-revolutionary weapons. This Browning is the same age as the Browning, from which Kaplan shot Lenin's grandfather. But the model is different.

    This is not a Browning, but a 1910 Mauser. It is strange that the author did not see the characteristic branded "barrel". Almost all weapons, not overturned, but stupidly painted with black varnish. So many trunks have been ditched ...

      Woldemar78 19 November 2013 19: 44
      Yes, only the "Mauser" is not 1910, but the M-1914, the caliber is larger, and outwardly there are differences (I know from personal experience)!

      And what? To rearrange according to manufacturing technology is to heat up to 300 degrees. Not every steel will get younger from this. And so - Kuzbassslak washed away (by the way, the best preservative of the cheapest - power line anchors covered with Kuzbasslak with aluminum powder in the 1930s and 1950s and still stand without corrosion as new) and now it is a military weapon with its own individual history.

    And in order not to repeat itself, such well-groomed stocks of weapons are needed. Modern weapons are too complicated to make. As a thirty-four in the Great Patriotic War, you cannot rivet. In the event of protracted hostilities (as now in Syria), what will we fight with? those that lie in the warehouses. And it should be stored in the mode "It takes about an hour to unseal the crew seats, reinstall the batteries, refuel the car and start the engine."
    And in vain you have surrendered the territory of Belarus so quickly to the enemy. Old Man will not forgive you.

        Have you cadets gone on guard with SCSs ???

        And this was a kind of chic for some commanders of the training units — to equip the SCS cadets, or at least to put them on guard with the SCS. And yes, AK47 or AK74 ...

        But SCS is a completely different matter.

    says the deputy commander of the military unit accompanying us on ideological work, Lt. Col. Gennady Goncharov.

    Smiled about the post lol It’s probably the first time he touched a weapon.

      No, not really yours. In the Belarusian Uzbroyenny forces, the political officer is the political officer, he is still being torn for everything and everyone. Therefore, no, no, yes, you’ll grab the trunk.

    Bravo brothers Belarusians. Only crazy people think that weapons can become obsolete. Iron can always be supplemented with modern electronics.

    Hmm, here was our power, silushka, and now, yes, they would have sold for a long time to China even for fruit, which is decaying. Well, so a good article!

    The article set a plus for pronozhdilzhil me. I visited the storage bases, including this one. And some of my colleagues were transferred there. There really is about everything as in the photo. I can’t vouch for the filling (for good reason), but they’re not childish in their appearance.

      In Belarus, the Russian language is the state language, along with Belarusian ... Are there really people who do not know about this?

    The pistol named by Browning is Mauser. Gaidar described this in the story "School" Only in the photo is a later modification.
