The parade of armored weapons will be shown to visitors of the Ural Tank Festival “Armor of Tankograda” during the opening ceremony, which will take place on October 3 at the 255th interspecific training ground of the Central Military District in the Chelyabinsk Region.

The movement of a column of armored vehicles will recreate a continuous picture of the formation of domestic tank building from samples from the times of the Great Patriotic War to modern combat vehicles in service with units of the Central Military District. The parade will be attended by the famous “thirty-fours”, heavy IS and KV tactics, as well as self-propelled anti-tank guns ISU-152 “St. John’s Wort”, which terrified the Wehrmacht’s tank divisions. Modern combat vehicles of the Russian army at the parade will be represented by armored personnel carriers BTR-80, BTR-82AM, T-72B3M tanks.

The first Soviet serial reconnaissance and patrol vehicles BA-64, the famous front-line “one and a half” GAZ-AA and the S-65 “Stalinets” tractors that became artillery tractors during the Great Patriotic War will also take part in the solemn passage.

The patriotic action will be attended by servicemen of the guards tank division of the Central Military District, employees of enterprises of the military-industrial complex of the Chelyabinsk region, representatives of the patriotic education fund “Council of Chiefs of Military Units” and military-patriotic associations of the South Urals.
