We invite you to this tank repair factory in Saint Petersburg to see how they repair tanks there.
At the factory, they repair mostly the T-72 and T-80. Recently, it became 100% civil organization.
The T-80 was the main tank of the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union. Weight: 42.5 tons; equipped with 125 mm 2A46 gun.
Major repairs of these tanks began in 1992.
The factory includes 20 departments and the assembly/disassembly department is of most interest.
Here, they disassemble tanks and replace broken component parts with new ones. As for old component parts, they sell them to other countries.
It is amazingly clean in this department.
