Kharkov Armored Repair Plant

A trip to Kharkov turned out to be very successful who did not go, let them envy. The main goal is taken. Before us is the Kharkov Armored Repair Plant. Get ready to pump your finger. A lot of tanks and a lot of photos.

Photo 1.

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.
The message is posted in the public domain on the website of Ukrspetsexport.

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!

      When the transformation is over, a helicopter groaning in the dark will start in the workshop. Photographers who are weak in spirit will lay down in stacks, and rumors of anomalies at the plant will begin to circulate throughout the region. Curious stalkers will come to check.
      So the second "Zone" will appear.

    Something not entirely clear ... This plant specialized in T64, but here, besides the 5td engines, it reminds nothing of it, completely T72 and T80, but where did hundreds of T64 go?

        And what is it without comments? The photo shows that everything is basically in place with 2010 in place, which in itself is not bad. But the tank potential of Ukraine is simply huge and redundant for a long time. 4 or 5 tank repair plants + HZTM.

      Well, there was power and that. How much money was coffin in the USSR for tanks, but they could produce cars, objects of the national economy. But the stores were in short supply for these goods. And the USSR would not fall apart.

      Hunchback is certainly to blame, but remember these words
      I swear to conscientiously study military affairs, to protect military and national property in every possible way and to be loyal to my People, my Soviet Homeland and the Soviet Government until the last breath.
      I am always ready, by order of the Soviet Government, to defend my Homeland - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and, as a warrior of the Armed Forces, I swear to defend it courageously, skillfully, with dignity and honor, not sparing my blood and life itself to achieve a complete victory over enemies .
      If I violate this solemn oath of mine, then let me suffer the harsh punishment of Soviet law, the general hatred and contempt of the workers ”
      So you need to start with yourself (where you were at 91), and then Gorbaty, Chubais and other liberals and Pend * Soviet feedings are to blame.

      And how many tanks do you need in Russia? And how many tank factories are needed. Or again to rivet 20 or more thousand (and keep it in the open air), but how to maintain, protect and what army you need to have. (And how much money to spend) Before you sing about lost power, you need to think. Yours faithfully!!!

And you know where .... at the Dretunsky training ground in preparation for the West -81 exercises, how much equipment there was at the execution!
