In honor of the 79th anniversary of the military parade on Red Square on November 7, 1941, a reconstruction of the battles for Moscow took place on the territory of the Memorial Road museum-temple complex in the Victory Field open-air museum. The event was organized with the support of the Main Military-Political Directorate of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

The main events in the reconstruction were the defense of Moscow in the fall of 1941, the heroic work of Metrostroy employees to build defensive structures on the outskirts of the capital. The participation of divisions of the people’s militia and extermination battalions formed from residents of Moscow and the Moscow region was recreated in detail. Historical armored vehicles, light tanks T-26, T-60, legendary T-34 and “Katyusha” were involved in the reconstruction.

The Pobedy Open Air Museum is a collective image of the battlefield during the defense of Moscow in 1941. It was in this area that the Nazis made the last decisive attempt to break through to Moscow in early December 1941 (Narofominsk breakthrough). But the heroic, selfless actions of the soldiers and commanders of the Red Army forced the German command to abandon the plan to attack Moscow from the Naro-Fominsk direction.

“Victory Field” was created using weapons and military equipment of the times of the Great Patriotic War. On the battlefield, you can see the destroyed German T-IV tank, German Ju-87 aircraft, equipment and weapons of the enemy. And also the armament of the Soviet troops – a bunker with the calculation of the DP-27 machine gun, dugouts, positions of artillery crews, T-34-76, KV-1 tanks, observation posts, calculation cells, a strip of engineering obstacles. There are no analogues of such a museum, and each exhibit is unique in its own way and has its own history.
