Tank Repair Shop of Today

Posted on September 26, 2012 by team


Fortunately, tanks are not widely used today for their intended purpose. Some of them serve as monuments, participate in military parades, others are just left to decay. The lucky ones come to places like this where they get some care.

See the photos from the tank repair shop in Chita, Zabaikalsk.

        Tell that to all the Abrams fanboys (Im gonna go out on a limb here, and assume you’re one), who claim its the best, because they went up against the Iraqi Asab Babils.

        • America says:

          The fact the Abrams utterly decimated Iraqi forces is not the reason the Abrams is one of the best tanks in the world today. Iragi forces in their outdated Russian hardware was a cakewalk for them. But the Abrams can hold it’s own with the best in the world, unlike these old pieces of scrap waiting to get killed off.

          I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume if you had to go into battle against an Abrams in a Russian tank it would be something a tad more modern and survivable, not one of these old clunkers that ruled the battlefields of mid-late 20th century.

            “But the Abrams can hold it’s own with the best in the world” Prove it, in modern battle against other 1rst world military forces. Lol. Srlsy, the Abrams hasn’t gone up against anything that anyone would consider a first class military.

            “one of these old clunkers”
            Lol. Whos talking about the tanks shown here. These are just getting repaired and sent to the reserve storage bases.

            “I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume if you had to go into battle against an Abrams” If I ever went into battle in a tank, it would have been in a T-80UD. But my army days are long gone, so, meh.

            “tad more modern and survivable” T-80’s are pretty modern and pretty survivable. In fact the second best Russian tank in inventory, only the T-90 surpasses it.

            Besides if a Abrams was ever to engage a Russian force, it would be more likely to get burnt by a rocket artillery barrage than by engaging a Russian tank force.

              Of course they would be preemptively engaged as well and back and forth it goes. lol

                “they would be preemptively engaged”. Yes, they would. But, I would say that the Russian battery having the greater range (90km vs ~70km) would mean that it could “shoot-and-scoot”. Lol.

    Looks like T-80 tank: not really T-64 and not really T-72. Definitely not T-90/

  8. Osip says:

    Nothing has changed here since Soviet time. Same crude facilities and labor intensive methods. The more things change, the more things stay the same.

    Are they being repaired to be sent to Venezuela? Pic 19 sees ‘ven’ painted on it.
