A “Sheglovski Val” military factory was having an open house (why are they doing this at all?) and some photographers visited, so here are a few photos from inside what were once the secret chambers of the place where modern weapons are being produced. Like those two missile laden trucks you can see in top photo – they are painted in sand color which means they are going to be exported to some Southern countries with deserts, etc.
Thezse are called “Panzir” or SA-22 Greyhound is its NATO name – short to medium ranger surface to air missile system.
While the photographers were there, they say there were around twenty such systems in the hangar. The factory representative told them that it takes roughly one month to assemble one of these.
This is the work place of the operator of the missile system, from inside of the truck. All the screens are touch screens, just like your supermarket cashier stand. Also, why do they put those handles on the screens?
And this truck is called a mobile control center for the air defense systems. Looks like it goes together with those Greyhounds and can control a whole cluster of them.
Before shipping this order, it gets packed in tarps.
Another hanger – here these vehicles are going to have the upper equipment and weapons installed.
And those are suction arms from some foreign provider that help people to assemble stuff:
Hope you liked this too 🙂 Thanks to BMPD – the photographer, for the insight.
