So, we arrived with a friend Alex Brod [Morpheus] almost at night and naturally climbed there, spitting on everyone and seeing the city. We climbed through the thorn and in front of us appeared the most real apocalyptic sight. Cemetery of tanks!
A little about the object. Kharkiv Armored Repair Plant specializes in overhauls and modernization of T-64, T-80, T-72 tanks and 5TDF and GTD-1250 tank engines.
The plant also repairs tank sights, laser rangefinders and guided weapon systems.
By the time of the collapse of the USSR, the plant was producing an overhaul of about 60 tanks and 55 engines per month.
At the moment, half of the plant is abandoned, but the plant is still active. Contrary to the apocalyptic species presented below, the plant still lives.
The T-55-64 tank, the Ukrainian main battle tank, was developed at this plant. Is a hybrid of tanks T-55 and T-64
23 March 2011, the state enterprise Kharkiv Armored Repair Plant, signed a contract for the modernization of T-72 tanks.
17 April 2013, the specialists of the state enterprise Kharkiv Armored Repair Plant, developed a new combat platform unified with the T-80 tank and the Oplot BM, reports Defense Express with reference to the Ukraine Industrial website.
Unification concerns the engine with service systems, transmissions, chassis and electrical equipment.
The platform is equipped with an 6TD-2E engine with 1200 horsepower. and allows for a high base level of protection.
In the version of the BMP inside the body is set armored capsule for the landing.
A high degree of unification of the BMP and the tank facilitates crew training, simplifies the repair and maintenance of equipment, and allows you to optimize the supply of spare parts and fuel and lubricants, Defense express notes.

These are all tanks! How many are there. One of those who climbed there earlier, wrote that there are more than 250!
Helmet tankers. Do not be so dirty, you could take a souvenir.
Nevertheless, the true scale of the object is visible from the roof of the workshop! These are all tanks! where have you seen so many tanks? Even in the movies, games and pictures never seen. This was the power of the USSR army, and when it collapsed everything remained unsuccessful.
There are a lot of workshops, but we will probably stop at one thing, since we looked into the rest - nothing fundamental was found there.
We go inside the shop - the scale is amazing. All this engines from the tanks! Their hearts torn out!
A boat that never sails
In these boxes are machine-gun belts
Tires from BTR
Electrical equipment from the tank
Torture chambers for careless workers
Turns the tower
the engine is simply amazing
Found shells even!
In addition to the tanks here and BTR there
And tracked amphibians
All happy new year, to new meetings on interesting objects.
