Wargaming continues to implement a large-scale project to restore the legendary machine

June 18, 2014 - Wargaming today announced the successful completion of the second phase of the campaign to raise and reconstruct the Soviet tank KV-1 - the car was lifted from the bottom of the Don River and transported to the shore.

The restoration of the legendary tank is taking place within the framework of the “We Remember Everything” program and is a joint initiative of Wargaming, the Armored Museum in Kubinka and the administration of the Upper Mamon District of the Voronezh Region.

“The restoration of the KV-1 is a significant project within the framework of“ We Remember Everything ”and one more step towards the creation in Kubinka of a unique collection of armored vehicles,” said the head of the publishing division of Wargaming, Andrey Yarantsev. “We are pleased that the project has caused such keen interest among fans of military equipment, locals and World of Tanks fans.”

Preparations for the rise of the HF-1 began at the end of the 2013 of the year, but due to the difficult bottom relief and adverse weather conditions of the event, it was decided to postpone until spring. Works on raising the car started on 29 in May and lasted more than a week.









The tank was lifted from the bottom by specialists of the National Emergency Rescue Agency with the assistance of local residents. The rescued car does not have a turret, the right track and the entire starboard, which still remain at the bottom of the river. After their recovery, the tank will be transported to the Ostrogozhsk military unit for restoration. The restored vehicle will be transferred to the Central Museum of Armored Weapons and Equipment of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in Kubinka.

“During the work on the HF-1, we received a lot of useful information about other surviving copies of armored vehicles, which will expand our future plans to restore military relics,” said Andrey Yarantsev. “The next step will be the creation of a site where everyone can tell about the military heritage sites that need protection and restoration.”

      Vitaly, it already ached in my sternum, my grandfather (mechvod) fought on this in Stalingrad, and took Kenik. would be alive probably would burst into tears ... buried so many from the crew for the war, and he himself was wounded once ... in the heel! died of a heart attack in 1986 ... soldier

    But what for it was to blow up, the rivermen could even then pull out without problems and use as a monument, at least! I don’t understand the Soviet leadership of that time, valuable artifacts explode after Khrushchev’s remelting, for all that stand T34 / 85, which participated already at the end of the war, and T34 / 76 units, although our grandfathers had on them carried all the hardships of the war and were able to reverse its course In our favor. I’m silent about BT-5, 7.
    And the movie has to be shot using various implausible crafts, after which the film loses all its appeal, although the plot and idea were 5+. It's a shame!

      "I am already silent about BT-5, 7."
      Come to Chita! There stands on the site of the museum both BT-7 (early series), and IS-2, IS-3, IS-4! (Yes, yes, it’s him, but what’s mine, did you think he’s only in Kubinka?), and many, many tasty things, for example, "Stalin's Sledgehammer", she is "Karelian Sculptor". The only thing I grieve is that when the mudorezhissovorukherov arrived in Our City, they took the "Betehu" from the pedestal for filming, there these creatures, born by the reaction of chemical pedrolysis, crushed the tank. Kina was called either "bl..do ... catch a fool", or "a stupid military man got tired of a woman and died" sad

    we have the same 34ka at the bottom. about 8 years ago they wanted to raise ..... figured out who will bear the costs ... everything died out. at 43, during the liberation of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, 34ka fell through the ice with a crew and ammunition .... a German broke ice with special mortars. lies not deep 5-6 meters. so if anyone is interested write contact. if I raise it, I think that it will be possible to start it ... as they say, it is preliminarily slightly processed with a file.

    Well done. Of course, the condition of the tank is aheaded, Work and work. I remember about three years ago (give or take) from Lake Beloe, that they took out a T-34 next to Reutov, so they filled up the battery there, put it on, put it on, and he drove into the trailer himself. "Very skillful" pens are now attached to it, and it will be as good as new.

    And yet, according to our laws, all the equipment of the Second World War belongs to the Ministry of Defense, the guys drop their hands, find, spend their money and time, and you get it, the brave children will come and take it for themselves.
    By the way, there is a video report on how the tanks are "restored" in Kubinka on their website, the impression is not unambiguous, to take out the native dvigun and put it in there from the warehouse is somehow not very ...
