Motovilikha Plant is one of the oldest in Russia. It saw the daylight in 1736. At that time it was a big copper-smelting plant. In the end of the XIXth century it was rebuilt into machine-building. That was the beginning of the artillery
production. Just in time. During the First World War one fifth of all the artillery was produced here as well as during the Second World War. Nowadays it produces modern artillery mounts, mortar launchers and other "useful" things.
