The State Enterprise "Lviv Armored Plant", which is part of the state concern "Ukroboronprom", handed over to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine a new batch of modernized T-64 and T-72 tanks.
“The tanks have undergone major repairs and deep modernization. We took into account all the wishes of the customer, - says the director of the enterprise Viktor Androshchuk. - The equipment was transferred in full combat readiness. It is equipped with the most modern communication and fire control systems, day and night vision devices, rear-view cameras, smoke grenade systems and dynamic protection against cumulative shells. Part of the batch has already been shipped to combat units, the rest are waiting for this. ”
Mr. Androshchuk also noted that the plant continues to send mobile repair teams to the Operations zone and to the locations of armored vehicles. For two months of this year, they have restored more than ten combat vehicles.
“The task of the enterprises - members of the concern is to meet the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in high-quality military equipment. The Lviv Armored Plant continues to fulfill orders in a timely manner, increasing its combat capability, ”says Yuriy Gusev, General Director of Ukroboronprom.
Since the beginning of 2021, the state enterprise has modernized more than ten T-64 and T-72 vehicles. The order was completed ahead of schedule and for limited funding due to the lack of a state defense order for this year.
Recall that the Lviv Armored Plant repairs and manufactures military equipment, in particular armored fire engines GPM-72 and GPM-54, armored recovery vehicles "Lev" and "Zubr" and tactical armored wheeled vehicle "Dozor-B". The company also carries out overhaul and modernization of T-72, T-64 tanks and a number of special engineering vehicles.
