Right now we’ll pay a visit to Armoured Repair Plant №61 in St. Petersburg to see how they repair tanks.
This plant has been reparing combat vehicles since it was created. Mostly T-72 and T-80 tanks.
Right at the entrance to the territory of the plant we can see this T-80, the main battle tank of the Soviet armed forces. Its weight is 42,5 tons, its main weapon is the 125 mm gun 2A46 which fires with speed of 6-8 rounds per minute.
Ovehrhauls of these tanks started here in 1992.
