The plant tour was held for the students of the Military College of Kharkiv Air Force University named after Ivan Kozhedub.
Three study groups of thirty-two students led by Lieutenant Colonel Vitaly Buzenovskiy visited the museum of history of our plant, where they learnt a lot about the history and development stages of the plant from the first locomotives to modern models of military technology. And about our people – the "Malyshev Team" who despite the large grave hardships that they had to experience, embodied many brilliant ideas, the result of design thought of many generations of people involved in the “tank case”.
And then they went to the workshop to see directly process of the development of the defensive might of our country. In this case, it was represented by tanks «Oplot» and upgraded T-64B«Bulat». In assembling and welding students saw how the tank tower was created, with their own eyes they examined all the details of the process, convinced of the high professionalism of our specialists. Then the students visited a nearby assembly workshop. During the tour the students were able not only to track on the process of drafting the tank, but also to assess the state of heavy armored vehicles, which arrived from the ATO zone. They could understand the magnitude of the work on their restoration. And they could properly evaluate the work of our staff, who «returned to life» a seemingly totally destroyed vehicle, gave it a chance to test itself in battle again. The repair of equipment is very close for the future militarians (among them were two girls, by the way). Because air craft maintenance is their future profession!
